When we used to drive down South, I, being a post-war schoolteacher, chose the least expensive motels. But I paid for it. We brought home bed bugs. I couldn’t stand them, and least of all did I want to leave them to the couple that bought the house from us. So I paid over $1,000 to exterminate them from our bedroom, their hiding place.
It worked. What a job, though. Then we moved, with a clear conscience. Do unto others….the saying goes, but there’s a lot of wisdom in that Bible. I am a little wiser with old age, now. But I paid a price.
