For those of you won't don't know: i'm currently living with at least 2 mice and one possible possum/rat. i first discovered them when they ate all of my cheese packets (u know the ones you get when u order pizza). so i told the landlord and she said, oh yeah, they come in during the summer to stay cool.
WTF?! since it ain't paying rent, i don't want it there. however, after i removed all the cheese packets, and cleaned up all the mouse poo, they seemed to stop coming.
fast forward to a few weeks later. i was awakened to russling noises in my kitchen. oh yeah, btw, i live in a studio-ish room so i hear everything. i knew it was a mouse so i went hunting for what they were eating. (i stopped keeping food home b/c of this whole fiasco). Turns out, they somehow smelled an unopened box of chocolates and got into them. In addition, they left a nice pile of poo under my computer desk. i stayed up the rest of the nite cleaning and reorganizing my room/house. but this time, they've managed to stay around. first they were eating the ketchup packets i kept, and then they got into the soy sauce packets. During the last 2 weeks, they've managed to wake me up at around 3am-5am EVERY SINGLE F***ING NITE!!!!! Luckily, i run a afternoon tutoring business so it doesn't hurt as badily.
The landlord feels terrible about it. She's called the pest control. However, all they did was set a trap in my room for 3 days. when i called them to complain and to say that it's not working and that the mice is still scuffling about. They simply moved the trap to behind the drawers. Now they say "let's wait a couple of weeks and see what happens"
this is absolutely driving me insane (well, it's either the mice or the lack of sex, but i digress). oh yeah, there's a mouse at my office too.
can't wait to pay rent this month for me and my new roommates!!
