I'm freaked out right now

It’s not quite 5 am and no one I know is awake yet and I have a huge bug that got into my lamp somehow and I don’t know what to do. It appears to be a beetle or omg a potato bug. I think it’s a potato bug. What do I do?

Can you try to pull it out or dump it out or shake it out?

Turn off the lamp.

Put a plastic bag around it,

Tie it,

Wait for people to wake up and help you take it out.

@Manny and @Charles_Foster I calmed down and unplugged it and took it outside and carefully dumped it. lol it was a cricket, the lampshade was magnifying it.

lol, well that’s how it felt. I’ve always been afraid of bugs and always lived with other people and they have dealt with them. Having to calm down and deal with it was a strange, new journey for me.

this is the potato bug I’m referring to

also known as a Jeruselum cricket

It doesn’t trigger sz. It triggers something more menacing even. The inner child that is utterly helpless lol
