    Cockroach Infestation On Greyhound

    Were you riding in Coach or with a roach? Snakes on a plane? Who cares?

    Passengers on a bus from Atlantic City (Even a big win would not be worth this) to New York were deluged by some serious cockroaches falling on them, climbing on them and crawling up them.

    Yes, I will lose sleep over this.

    Greyhound bus ride turned into roach-fest, passengers say
    By Laura Smith-Spark and Joe Sutton, CNN
    updated 1:16 PM EDT, Mon March 18, 2013



    (CNN) -- Roaches crawling out of air vents. Roaches climbing up seats and windows. Roaches on people's coats and hats. Roaches everywhere.

    It sounds like a scene from a horror movie -- but is in fact what passengers say happened on a Greyhound bus journey from Atlantic City to New York on Friday.

    "There's like a thousand roaches," passenger Dawn Alexander told CNN affiliate WABC. "And when I say infested, I mean infested. People were in the aisles literally brushing roaches off of them."...

    I'll take snakes on a plane any day over these disgusting creatures. I hate cockroaches and fear infestation so much it is phobic.

    I'd prefer neither. Snakes can kill you, but roaches can hitch a ride very easily. You'd have to take everything you had on that bus, including your clothes and just throw them into a garbage bin. One pregnant roach could make your house infested within days. JMO

    They'd all have seen me on the road in my underwear and demanding police or someone send a vehicle to transport out of there. There's no telling how many roaches were spread to luggage at the bus terminal before this ever happened. Roaches all over the place,yuck. I need to spray my house now.

    I've never read any data research about roaches, but I swear they are born already pregnant!

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.
