What to do I do when I find a roach in my apartment?
First I have a monetary freak out.
A second passes where I try to asses if anyone else will come kill it (the "is my roommate awake moment.")
Then I grab a flip-flop (I had many pairs, so I have a weapon close at hand), and kill that fucking roach.
For roaches larger then 1 inch I grab a sneaker instead of a flip flop.
Then I scoop it up with a tissue, or 3x5 card bring it out in the hall and leave the body on the steps up to my landlords apartment.
