My officemate Alix needed to call our custodial department to report a clogged toilet, so she went to get her internal phonebook out of her desk drawer...
...and screamed and jumped half way across the room. (Note: Alix is a scientific researcher and not given to such behaviors)
There was a bark scorpion running around in the drawer.
I lent her my phonebook.
As it was still there a few hours later, we called herpetology and Ken came over with tongs and a plastic container and took it away, but not before I took the photo on the right.
Never a dull moment here.
