      apparently it’s ladybug season and they are SO loud when they crash into the ceiling/light fixtures/anything solid they can actually bump into

      • Jessica Knapp

        Not even the REAL ladybugs! It’s those “fake” ladybug-looking beetles. Check the shell, they’re orange, not red. And they stink when you smoosh them. Ugh.

        • Steph

          Those are Japanese Lady Beetles and not only do they smell when squished, they will bit you if you try to catch them and throw them outside!  Ick!

        • Emily Anne

          ummm #terrifying
          but I feel better about killing them now. I felt bad about killing ladybugs, but I feel less bad about killing evil biting bugs.

      Taco Bell specifically always gets my order wrong. It’s been that way for years and no matter which Taco Bell I go to, I always have to check that everything is in the bag and it’s all the right stuff. I don’t have that problem with anyone else but Taco Bell.
