Those people that say mice are the cutest and most harmless creatures in the world, never had to live through an infestation of them and feel them running over their body as they slept. I once had a shady apartment, with a mouse problem and in the span of one summer, we caught 35+ of those little furry bastards. And it was the 16th floor, no less. It was disgusting and we moved out as soon as our lease was up.
So while my roommate and I were tough enough to just grab them and toss them, not everyone has the bravery to do so. In fact, according to this text convo shared on Imgur, some people are legit terrified and will go to great lengths to avoid touching a mouse.
