Use your local snake catcher
it was my 17th birthday and we were having a barbeque party in the afternoon. I am dead terrified of snakes and my friends and family know it. As usual they were cracking their official jokes "there is a snake behind you" but this time I was prepared and refused to fall for it.
But after looking at their stupefied faces I realised they were not joking and when I turned I saw a rattle snake. I screamed the life out of me in pure shock.
Immediately my dad whose always been sensible and prudent call the local snake catcher who came and took the snake away. My dad always taught me that every living thing has the right to live and as long as you can do that in harmony there is no need for aggression and hate.
