AUGUSTA, GA. — Employees were forced out of city offices in Augusta, Ga., recently after an unhappy citizen showed up with an unwelcome “gift.” The unidentified man showed up at the offices several times on a Friday afternoon to complain about bedbugs at his apartment, and was looking for assistance in finding another apartment. When he learned he didn’t qualify because of his income, the man dumped a cup of bedbugs on the customer service counter, according to the Kennebec Journal. “He told police he wanted them to experience the same thing he was experiencing,” said Matt Nazar, city development director. The offices re-opened the following Monday after being sprayed with bedbug-killing chemicals by a pest control company.
