I work on the 25th floor of my building and it's a pretty well maintained building. So I'm walking out of the ladies room and I was pretty surprised to see a cockroach scurrying across the carpet. Of course I start freaking out and run past it towards the doors to our office. It starts running in my direction.
The doors to my office are locked and you either need to be buzzed in our hit the code on the keypad. Freaking out like I'm being chased by a velociraptor I reach the doors and start pulling on the handles and yelling for the receptionist to let me in.
"Open the doors!!"
"What's going on is there a mouse?!"
"No a cockroach, NOW OPEN THE DOORS!"
I know the code for the keypad but I was busy freaking out here.
Once I was safely behind closed glass doors some of my other co-workers come out to see what was happening. We determined that someone should get the roach but none of us wanted to be the one to do it. As we're deciding what the do the Fed Ex guy and the cleaning lady come across the roach. The cleaning lady laughs at us and sweeps up the roach with her broom.
Thank you cleaning lady for not being a wussy girl like me.
