First, difficult child 2 thinks he can pull the wool over my eyes. Then this... I finally called the landlord about the stupid yellow jackets coming in through my floor vents. Originally, it was just the living room vent that is along the exterior wall, but now we are also hearing them in the kitchen vent that is along the garage wall. The exterminator called yesterday and scheduled to come out Friday morning at 11:30. This morning, my doorbell rings. Jewels barking like mad. I don't answer the door if the doorbell rings because everyone we know walks in. The doorbell rings again. I was sleeping. I stumble out of bed, in my nightgown, grab my glasses and go out to see who is here. It is the exterminator. I have balance issues and word finding issues which are markedly worse when I first awaken, accompanied by a case of crankiness. Especially when I'm standing at the door in my nightgown talking to a strange man. Anyway, he had a cancellation and thought he would stop out, and, "Oh, did I wake you up?" No, I always answer the door in my nightgown. He kept insisting they were bumble bees even though he hadn't seen them and I told him, repeatedly, that they are yellow jackets and I have the carcasses of a few that he can inspect. Then when he found out that besides the vent along the exterior wall, they're also coming in through a vent along an interior wall, he asks me how that could happen. Like I'm the exterminator, right? Then he asks, "Are you sure it's not mice?" *blink* "Mice don't buzz and then fly around the kitchen." Seriously? Could someone really mistake bees (I guess yellow jackets are wasps, but they look and sound like bees) for mice? He wanted to come in and "take a listen", but they aren't going all the time, I was in my nightgown, half awake and told him so. He's coming back in the morning. "Are you sure it's not mice." He's lucky he wasn't in smacking distance. I'm very cranky when I first wake up - especially unexpectedly.
