    Pestering Pests About Rodents At Rest

    | MN, USA | Pets & Animals

    (I take a phone call.)

    Caller: “I’ve got a hamster I need you to get rid of!”

    Me: “I’m sorry; we don’t get rid of hamsters.”

    Caller: “Well why not? Isn’t it just a rodent?”

    Me: “Yes, I think it might be, but it’s domesticated. We don’t get rid of domesticated animals.”

    Caller: “But it’s dead.”

    Me: “It’s dead?”

    Caller: “Yeah! It’s dead behind the stove!”

    Me: “Well, we don’t just come pick up dead animals; we really cant help you.”

    Caller: “Okay. Thanks anyway.”

    (The caller hangs up. I turn around to a coworker intending to tell her about my weird call. She holds up her finger, puts someone on hold, and blows out a huge sigh.)

    Coworker: “Hey! I’m going to need a manager! This lady wants to know why we can’t prevent birds from landing in her yard!”
