Day 256..#You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me! II
It was 02:36 when I got to the place where I was staying, opened the door and flipped the light switch.
“Oh no” I thought to myself looking around.
The carpet was dirty, it was freezing cold, there were no curtains and there was graffiti on the walls and above the bed.
*N.B. This is where I am supposed to be contracted to stay for the next year until graduation*
I stepped into the room and closed the door behind me looking around.
I walked over to the window and there were dead flies and moths on the ledge. I cringed. I opened the door of the shower and guess what I found..dead flies -_-
I allowed the shower door to close on its own and made sure I kept my things in the centre of the room not touching anything.
I put my bag on the desk which was sticky and covered in what looked like cookie crumbs.
I opened my travel bag and brought out my bedspreads to cover the mattress. I knelt on the mattress and opened my sheet..that’s when I saw something moving. I leaned in closer, squinting my eyes. I jumped back and screamed.
Woodlice were crawling on the mattress as well as other creepy crawlies. I thought I was going to be sick.
I was tired, irritated and just wanted to sleep and there was no way I was sleeping on that mattress and getting chewed by creepy crawlies whilst doing so..plus I’m a germophobe, there was no way you would get me touching anything else after what I’d just witnessed.
So I opened my luggage, got out another jumper, some leggings, socks and my shoes and put them all on. I grabbed the winter jacket that I had on the chair, put it on and zipped it up, then I sat down at the desk, put my hood up and placed my head in my arms and attempted to sleep.
I tried to sleep, but I kept waking up because I was cold and uncomfortable (my poor back) hoping it was morning so I could start cleaning.
After the longest 4 hours, I looked at the time and it was 07:23. I took my jacket off, rolled up my sleeves and brought out the rubber gloves.
I didn’t actually think it could get any worse.
I was so wrong.
