After the cockroaches come the bugs. The bed bugs have arrived and I already lost two nights’ sleep. And I have summoned a Syrian pest control guy, who did a wonderful job eliminating the cockroaches last week by pasting some medicine through injection on the walls. It’s an easy system where you do not have to remove anything and just go about your work normally at home.
When I narrated this to my colleague, he was not amused. “You yourself are a bug, why you worry?” he joked.
“It is because I have some creepy-crawly friends like you,” I retorted.
‘Keep away. Don’t spread the bugs,” he told me, when another colleague joined us.
“Hey young man (OK, OK, he called me old man). How you doing?” he said, giving me a hug.
“Don’t touch him. He has bed bugs at home,” said the creepy.
The new guy replied: “Bugs bite. But you bug.”
