I hate ants!

Ok, so my kids would be saying, "Ooh, Mom said hate." But, I think this aversion is as strong as that. I don't strongly dislike them, I hate them. Here is one of the many reasons why:

I have a "laundry chute." (Actually it is just the place where we throw the dirty clothes downstairs from the upper floors. But I like to think that I have a laundry chute, so don't go and burst my bubble, ok?)

I noticed that the laundry was pretty much taking over the entire house, so I thought I should do some laundry room shuttling. As I picked up some of the dirty towels, ants started to pour out of them. EEEEWW! Grody to the max! Gag me with a pitchfork! (OK-enough with the valley girl impersonations)

Did I mention that I hate ants?

I figured out why, too. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I had a pretty idyllic childhood. Fabulous weather, great culture, and NO LARGE BUGS! Or thunderstorms, but that is a different rant. Since moving to different parts of our great nation, I have heard stories of terrifying bugs of gargantuan sizes (mostly from Alexis--Texas and the Hawaii clan of the Johnsons). Yet, I had none of that in my experience. So ants are the epitome of disgusting-ness and yucky-bug-ness. I know I am a bug rookie, but its all I got!

Oh, and I hate ants.

Your to cute! I hate ants too. On our chest freezer the kids left some otter pops out and opened the other day and there was these HUGE ants all over them. It was disgusting. :)

I live in Texas. I hate big bugs, and I still hate ants! We have a pest guy come spray once every 3 months (sometimes more often) to keep them all away!

While visiting my parents in January, I found that they had a major ant problem, I seriously wanted to call and get a pest guy for them. Seriously disgusting little things!

You crack me up! I am with you though! I hate ants because they keep coming and coming and coming...well you get the picture! It is so hard to get rid of them and they can get anywhere and everywhere!
Well I feel better after my little rant, hope you did too!
