PostSubject: The Bat!   Mon Aug 11, 2008 6:16 pm

Came into work this morning to find 2 paralegals & our resident blonde attorney hanging around the receptionist's desk. I walk in and their first reaction is "Don't go in there!" (i.e. the hallway leading into the rest of the office).

"Why not?"

"There's a BAT!! up on the ceiling!!!" Bat

I glance into the hallway from the receptionist area and, sure enough, up on the ceiling tile is this plump little brown ball with wings & a tail. So I do what came natually: I walked on in! Excited

The attorney goes "Don't go in there! I've heard they like to fly into your hair!"
And I'm thinking: Jeeze you really don't have to play to the "dumb blonde" stereotype!
The most I can muster under my irritation is "um...no they don't!" so I go & stand under the bat.

Lucky guy: hanging there upside down, fast asleep, the tail occasionally moving (probably dreaming, lol).
So I went about my business in the office, crisscrossing under the bat several times as I went from office to office doing my clerical work while all the ladies are in the front area, terrified the little guy is going to actually wake up after a night of clubbing cheers to mess with their hair!
In the end, maintenance came & took the bat (and another in the floor hallway's ceiling) away.

I asked the maintenance guy later what he did w/ the 2 & he said "Released them. hey they eat mosquitos you know!"

Glad to see another sensible person! Bat

The echo from between her ears probably confuses its sonar.

lol, quite probably!
Interestingly I was kidding with one of the ladies later in the day about the bat, and she revealed some of her (their) misconceptions:

- bats like to fly into people's long hair, particularly if its blonde... Shocked huh?
- they bite
- they carry rabies

To which I replied:
- No they don't. (The look of disbelief on her face was impressive).
- So would any animal, like a dog, if you went & grabbed it. Leave the bat alone it'll leave you alone.
- Only if the bat contracted the disease from somewhere & is lying on the ground. Bats don't lie on the ground unless ill.

She quickly changed subjects to her pet chihuahua dog.

Anyone here surprised this chick owns a Paris-Hilton-approved chihuahua? Very Happy

It is probably smarter than she is. There is a Chi down the road from us that has been trained as a hearing dog for its deaf owner.

I blame the lawyers full stop. They may have intelligence but when it comes down to basic common sense it goes over their heads! My beloved boss let the coffee machine burn by forgetting that you actually need water to make coffee Thud
