Apartment Manager: This is the one-bedroom apartment we have for rent. Let me show you around.
Sherin: Wait! Did you see that? It looked like a mouse or a rat.[audio:http://libsyn.com/media/eslpod/ESLPod814.mp3|titles=ESL Podcast – Getting Rid of Bugs and Rodents]
Apartment Manager: There aren’t any rodents or any other vermin in this apartment complex. I make sure of that.
Sherin: Are you sure?
Apartment Manager: Sure, I’m sure. Only last month, I bought some mousetraps and rat poison and got rid of them all. This complex is rodent-free.
Sherin: Oh, I see.
Apartment Manager: And the month before that, we had roaches, ticks, and fleas, but I fumigated and they’re gone.
Sherin: You called a pest control company?
Apartment Manager: I didn’t need a pest control company to get rid of a few bugs. I did it myself.
Sherin: Oh, okay.
Apartment Manager: And six months ago, we had bedbugs, but thanks to my diligence, they’re gone, too. So you want to see this apartment or don’t you?
Sherin: I think I’ll pass. This conversation is making my skin crawl.
