Default That darn persistent snail

Over a week ago I noticed that my back door was hard to open and close the deadbolt lock. I checked the jamb and found a small snail wedged in there. I picked it off and tossed it in the yard. Now my door is easier to lock.

A day or two later I'm having trouble with the door again and there's that darn snail again in the same spot. I picked it off, called him a little bugger and threw it as far as I can into my yard.

Today he's back in the same spot, making it hard for me again. WTF is his problem? I picked it again and this time I tossed him in the toilet and flushed him.

Let's see you come back you little bugger!

Are you sure it's the same snail? They all look alike to me.

I'm sure it's the same one. Same size, same spot and all.

I'll let you know if I get a snail in my doorway again.

Eat those losers. Boil them and eat them

Wait, are snails edible?

Let's see you come back you little bugger!
You are so kind to let it live. Most would have killed the thing. I am guessing you are an animal lover?

That's a funny story Celery....That snail has some big balls to keep coming back after being thrown into the yard.
