Many people's stomaches turn at the sight of even one wayward bug whose found its way into a home. One can only imagine what these insectophobes would do if they found out their significant other had accidentally released 250 crickets into their house by accident.

That's exactly the situation Christopher Ingraham and his wife found themselves in this past December 28, 2018. Fortunately, readers got to experience his entire tale on Twitter without having to encounter any of the actual crickets!



The story started innocuously, but quickly took a turn for the worse...


Uh oh.



Christopher had made a mistake. A terrible, terrible mistake.



Christopher tries to fix his problem, but it's almost too much for him to handle.


Unfortunately, the crickets will be with the Ingrahams for quite a while.


Many others on Twitter shared similar stories of insect shipping (which is apparently a thing).




Maybe don't buy crickets online?


At least Christopher inspired this youngster to have some cricket-themed fun!

The next day, after his thread went viral, Christopher updated his readers to let them know how things were going:


Of course, the internet demanded pics.



Christopher's story was beloved by many online and it seems he's gained some new followers because of it! Of course, he probably hopes he'll never have a story this good again.
