Do you feel bad when you step on a snail?

It rained all day here in SoCal and in the 2 trips I made to the trash I was stepping on something "crunchy", well I know  to look for the big a$$ suckers they gross me out, but upon closer viewing, in the soft light of the moon and patio light, I saw a few of the tiniest, itty bittiest baby snails : ( like the size of a kids pinkie nail. I salvaged 2 and put them in a plastic cup to save their lives, they are cute!!!!!!! After that I looked carefully under that pale moonlight and realized the damn crunching was like 100 of them under my boots! EWWWWWWWWWWW

  • Awww, the poor wee things. But it's all part of nature and not your fault. You are so sweet for caring about the live ones.

  • I think the crunch makes me feel worse then actually killing them. Icky, gooey little fellas. Way to go!!! You saved a couple!

  • No, those cute itty bitty "cute" snails will grow into big snails that will ruin your lawn or garden.

  • No problem Rebecca my evil plan is to raise them til they're full grown and them tossing them onto the lawn of my mean neighbor behind me!! bruhahaha!!!!, No but really, I feel grossed out and bad. This past summer as I was wearing flip flops and doing yardwork I stepped on one full force with my left foot and the "GOO" literally shot and splattered on my right foot and toes and all! EWWWWWWWW! I never grabbed the water hose so fast!

  • ye-e-e-essssss!
    i like to walk barefoot when the weather is nice and the ants aren't biting, and i've stepped on more than my fair share of slugs. i do feel sorry for them, i hate damaging any kind of creature.

  • At lease snails have a shell and a little traction lol, I was once invaded by slugs when I was pregnant and stepped on, slipped and fell right on my butt.
