“When I was an undergrad, I woke up to go to class and discovered an Indian meal moth (aka ‘pantry moth’) larvae infestation in the closet of my dorm room. (which also served as part pantry). Emailed my prof right away that I would be missing class to deal with it. I was worried it wouldn’t be counted as an excused absence because it seemed so absurd. Later, my professor said she knew I was telling the truth because it was the wildest reason for missing class she’d ever heard. It was one of the worst days of my life, tho. So disgusting!”
