Pets are special beings.
When my dog gets ahold of a lighter and I attempt to retrieve it from him, he suddenly transforms into a small, vicious lion with a possessive personality disorder. In other words, he basically does whatever the hell he wants.
Most pets tend to sneak off at times and do things they know their owners wouldn't appreciate. It's just what they do! Take Ashley Glawe's pet snake for example. His name is Bart, and he does what he wants.
That much was made clear after Bart apparently snuck off and slid through Glawe's gauged earlobe while she was holding him. The Oregon-based woman took to Facebook to write about the incident that granted her a trip to the emergency room.
In a lengthy post, Ashley Glawe reveals,
I was holding my snake and his dumb ass saw a hole, which so happened to be my fuckin' earlobe, and thought that it would be a bright idea to attempt to make it through. It all happened so fast that before I even knew what was going on, it was already too late... Now, believe it or not, I'm sitting here in the emergency room with Bart stuck in my fucking ear.
Why does it feel like this is the very first time this has ever happened?!
Here's Ashley Glawe's Facebook post about the time her pet snake Bart decided to slither through her gauged earlobe.
Damn, who knew #GaugeProblems were a thing?
Glawe says this is "by far" one of her "craziest life moments." Coincidentally, just seeing this is a pretty crazy moment of my life, too.
Eventually, skilled doctors were able to make a small incision in Ashley's ear and used vaseline to moisten the area and free the lodged snake. As for Bart, he was unharmed during the procedure.
It all ends well for the dangerously curious snake and a vulnerable, gauged earlobe!
