Huh? What do you mean?

I've tried almost everything; the glue stays behind even with soaking, and then it looks just as bad as with the sticker.

Thanks,

To get rid of the stuff left behind I use rubbing alcohol, I rub it while applying force and it can take a while but it comes off. If it is a really pesky mark I soak it over night in water with some dish soap. :)

...and they assume your talking about computers."

(this one needs a little more work. I'm saving it here till I can come up with something really clever to finish it off)

@aphono, you speak from personal experience, don't you :D.



Ah yes, this is me (not the significant other part however). I can never get the stickers to peel off right though, so it looks all messy and awful by the time I'm finished. Ah, the life of an invert keeper...

Thanks,

Coconut oil will melt the glue left behind, I smear it on and let it sit overnight. Then wash it well with dish soap and water.

When you say things like "That's not one of my flies" or "Can I have that container when you're finished?"

Ah once I went exploring for new morphs. Found about 5 cool pedes and put them in clear jars in a clear bag. I got a few weird looks on the bus, even from the homeless.

...when you have a Seinfeld/Newman type of relationship with the office's Orkin guy.

...when you may or may not have left a note on said Orkin guy's windshield saying, "We're coming for you. Love, the Ants."

...when you realize that "Coleoptera" would be a lovely name for a daughter.

...when you actually try to convince your wife of that.

When you feel the need to buy a new species of tarantula - even though you're already keeping over 100 different species of tarantula.

"...When your bumper sticker looks like this: 'Just takin' on life, one invert at a time...'"
Or
"...When your philosophy for reptile shows is: 'Just taking the budget, one invert at a time...'"

When family members gives tours to guests in your bedroom as if it's a museum and not where you go to be alone.

When you hear yourself regularly using phrases like:
"You guys just don't get it."
or "Well, we all went through a bug phase, right?"
or "We both knew it would get out eventually. Now grab the flashlight and help me."
