I was on a route a few weeks ago where I discovered that a good portion of my car was full of ants! I woke up for some reason around 4AM and went to my car for something when I made the discovery. Turns out that I had parked next to an ant hill that was by the hotel parking lot. Several other guests reported ants in their car much later.
I was able to kill a good majority of the ants with Raid, yet it wasn't enough. I had to wait until 8AM for the closest auto detailer to open. At first, they balked at vacuuming all of the ants out, yet I had a manager finally give an employee approval. 2 hours and $36 later, I was ready to hit the road.
The entire ordeal ultimately delayed my timing by 5 hours, which drastically altered my overall route projections.
For those that have never had hundreds of ants in your car, it is NOT a good feeling (especially getting bit while en route to the auto detailer). I wish this experience on absolutely noone.
It never occurred to me to think about other shoppers and guns. Hmm...
