My father worked a lot of interesting jobs growing up to provide for me and my sibling, and one of them was the first factory gig he took when we moved down south. Since he was new to the area, my dad had his good share of experience dealing with all sorts of critters and peculiar work environments. One afternoon, he clocked into his shift of moving around giant bales of rebar only to hear a secretary scream. Dad grabbed a piece of rebar scrap and ran across the hall into his office. He couldn’t determine if he was dealing with an intruder or a robbery, but he wasn’t going to let his new co-workers get hurt. It turned out the only intruder they had was a snake, which had curled up into the infrastructure of the old printer. Dad surmised it came in to enjoy the cooling system. As much as his co-worker was upset, the little guy wasn’t poisonous. Also, my dad wasn’t about to kill a creature just for existing in the wrong place. He took the entire printer outside and managed to get the snake out and into the swamp behind the building. Not a single person could figure out was how he got in. At first, everyone though it was a prank. The secretary had only been there for a month, so she thought that maybe someone thought it would be funny to scare her, but my dad had an undoubtedly scary thought–the A/C vent was directly above the printer. He told his boss, who thought it was strange but called an A/C supplier in to investigate. Sure enough, two weeks later, they found the air duct had a nest of snakes.
