Hi lotters, this morning after waking up, I suddenly felt something under my bare left foot then a "crrrrkk" sound. If you were me, what will be your reaction? Would you laugh, scream or only stay silent like what i did? I only turned my head to see the poor creature squashed on the floor without saying a thing. How would you react if you were in my place?

My first reaction would be to shudder... just the idea of having something - anything - squished under my bare feet would make me do that. Since it was a cockroach, that would be even worse. I couldn't get to the shower fast enough!

Yep, what more can I do than wash. It felt like losing the upgraded status of my foot.

From cockroach's point of view, nothing could be more sad than this. From your point of view, it wasn't something that you would have liked to do as soon as you wake up, so I would say, it was no doubt awkward. But from my point of view, the way you have explained, I did laugh at it after reading.

It really was unanticipated. I didn't know if I'm lucky or unfortunate. I did not even use pesticide. I'm only glad the liquids did not stain my foot. If I pressed further, it could be more awkward. I have luck today and theres none that suffered the same fate.

Anyways, it's good for you, sometimes, we struggle a lot to kill one such insect and this poor little one was waiting to face the destiny.

So they are not indestructible! They just need squishing with a bare foot! I shouldn't think that was very pleasant! I've never done that with a cockraoch, only a snail! Eeeeeew!

If i were you i will shout yucky because i really don't like cockroach and i think they are really disgusting because of there smell and there appearance. When i kill them by using slipper i see that there body organs have yucky color. I also feel afraid when i see flying cockroach because i think they are ready ti bite when they are flying and i don't want to get bite by dirty cockroach.

I've been bit by an insect last night and I think it was a roach. I felt a soft wet stone when I removed it and the bite is really irritating..

Haha! This early morning, I saw my cat eat a mouse and crunching its head like cookies and swallowing even the bones.

I'll jump and ran as fast as I can do. I am afraid of those such little creatures, although I am much bigger than them but I'm still afraid of it. Hahaha, what a funny things is it? But yeah, it's me, I don't want to get closer with them, but I also don't want to hurt them anyway. All of us have the same right to live in this world and play our own roles.

Yes, maybe I'm just lazy being afraid, after all it takes considerable effort to run away but I can't since I haven't eaten my breakfast yet

It was funny that dry leaves inside the house but a cockroach to my surprise. I did not even clean the floor after for the disgusting sight and my old aunt cleaned the mess for I do not see a sign of the creature after.
