There are going to be times, especially as you get older when you wake up and have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. You stumble your way to the toilet, wiping the sleep from your eyes and wandering through a hall that is barely lit.
If you have found yourself in this situation, you may not like what I’m about to tell you.
In Brisbane, Australia, a woman was visiting her relatives and had an unwelcome visitor during her nighttime visit to the bathroom.
She woke up feeling the need to relieve herself, walked into the bathroom, did not turn on the lights and sat down. According to her recollection, she was ‘midstream’ when she felt a painful tap on the rear.
That tap was actually a snake bite. She jumped up, thinking that it may have been a frog but she was quite mistaken.
After realizing she had been bitten by a snake, the authorities went called. The event was posted on the ‘Snake Catchers of Brisbane’ Facebook page.
A 'CHEEKY' VISITOR!On Tuesday afternoon, we got a call from a customer in Chapel Hill, who was admittedly quite…
Oddly enough, the woman was not very shaken about the fact that there was a snake in the toilet and it had just bit her. It wasn’t even just any snake, it was a 5-foot carpet Python.
“The snake was safely removed and relocated, and the customer handled the situation like an absolute champ,” they said in their Facebook post.
The woman also promises she will turn the lights on from now on and looked down before she pees.
According to the Snake Catchers, a snake in the toilet is just as afraid as you are. After all, how would you feel if your only means of escape was suddenly closed off by a giant butt that sat down above you? I’m okay with that logic, but let’s just say I’m still blaming the snake.
There is a significant heat wave taking place in Australia at this time and temperatures are well over 100°. The snake may have just been looking for a comfortable place to rest.
Snake Catchers claims that it is actually a ‘regular occurrence’.
They also have some wise words for anybody who finds a snake hanging out in their toilet:
“Don’t poke and prod it, don’t continue to flush the toilet. Put the lid down, secure it, and call a snake catcher.”
So, will your next trip to the toilet in the middle of the night be any different?
