"A council worker was left confused after someone called to say they were being ‘harassed’ by a frog and needed help.  The four-legged amphibian was apparently waiting at the bottom of the man’s stairs in Crawley, West Sussex.

But instead of trying to get rid of it himself, he insisted the council should dispatch pest control to his home."

I'd have been hopping mad if some guy had called me to save him from a frog.

Unless it's Kermit.  Then there would lots of singing and dancing and joking involved.  :)

At that point the guy would probably be calling the council with a noise complaint!

Red Skelton was absolutely hysterical. I remember watching his show with my Dad...some great memories there.

Perhaps he thought it was his wife who'd turned into one. It's just as well he didn't decide to dispose of the frog himself.

You don't even need the broom, all you have to do is put the box down and tell the frog to 'hop' in. :whistle:

I'd have been hopping mad if some guy had called me to save him from a frog.

      I can envision the pest control people arriving.. and inquiring where the pest is.. and the frog  saying,   " he's upstairs "
