51. Ant infestation

The other day my husband and I took our farm truck into town to get some supplies, and as I open the passenger door to get in, I notice ants coming out of the vents.

“I am not riding in this car and have ants crawl all over me!”

My husband came over to my side and brushed all the ants out of the car. “See? Problem solved. We won’t be gone that long anyway.”

So we make our way to the different errand stops we need, and every time (every time!) we came back to the truck after leaving the store, there were ants continuing to come out of the vents and crawl around on the dashboard and the floorboards.

After the third stop my husband informed me that the truck had had an ant problem for a while because it had been sitting for so long undriven. He just didn’t tell me because he wanted to take the truck to put wood in the back bed.

Sometimes we face a challenge or obstacle, and we do not want to do it. It might be to work with a difficult person, finish a boring task, or ride around in an ant infested truck.

Usually though when you complete it, you’ve accomplished something and perhaps learned in the process, at least perhaps how to do it better or avoid that situation in the future.

As for me, I got a nice dinner out of riding around in that truck all day. But mark my words, I will never get in that truck again if it has ants.
