I'm a bad roommate.

[addendum, Feb 16: all taken care of! yeah, that mouse had been there for quite a while]

(for now this is filtered to exclude roommates and anyone I think might feel compelled to spill the beans)

rmd and I went out for a yummy dinner before seeing Daredevil. We stopped back at the house really quickly for something I couldn't find (a little cooler), and while I was hunting I peeked into a dead space in the pantry and found... a mouse in a spring trap. A long-dead mouse, I think. Nobody ever looks in there.

And... I left it there, and we went off to Daredevil.

We'd already agreed I'd only look very quickly because we had to get on our way. And as I say, I don't think it was exactly new. So I didn't take the time to deal.

Tomorrow I'll clean it up, and then I'll unfilter the post. ;-)

I think that is a no-shame situation. If the mouse has been there and dead for a long time now, one more night isn't going to kill anyone. You had a date and places to be and like you said, it was in an out of the way spot. I think anyone else in your situation would have done the same thing. I know I would have. ;)

The BAD roommate loudly and gleefully annouces "Hey, we caught a mouse!"

Then stands around expectantly until it dawns on you that he's making this announcement so that YOU will go and empty the trap so that he needn't soil his dainty fingers with it.

(why yes, I am glad that roommate is long gone)

I KNOW WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED, MAN.

well, okay, not so much "buried" as "hiding out of the way"
