My wife laughed.at that.  she ain't askared of much. she's a country girl. I've seen her put on my welding gloves to deal with a full grown opossum.

I have one that is a little left field.

My brother found a whole intact carnitas burrito  under the passenger seat of the VW van.  Neither one of us could remember when or how it got there. It could have been a month old or 6 months old. It was still wrapped in foil intact. The ends were hard though and the jalapenos/carrots had mold on them.

Yes, he ate it. Not the J&C. He didn't even get sick.
That goat never  was that bright.

We had a kangaroo rat take up residence in the van but he was more of a pet family member.
He adopted us. What were we to do?

Did they ever get the python out of the Volkswagen?

Found a colony of red ants once that set up shop in my Toyota Camry after I'd parked my car under some weird berry tree for a month while I was overseas. That was a fun surprise.

It wasn't horrible but I discovered a juvvie iguana was clinging to one of the windshield wipers today when I went to gas the car.

Made it back home in time for it to leap off and run up a tree.

The most horrible thing I've discovered in my car was a drunk as shiat young woman who thought I was her uber ride.

When I was getting my engine replaced on my RX-8 (shutup Wankle Engine, haters), they found the head of a mouse on a resistor block.

Just the head.

I suspect one of my cats somehow got it there as a warning to others.

Used to work with a guy from South Africa who said his morning routine included opening the car doors, flipping down the visors, letting the Huntsman spiders flop down onto the seats, encouraging them to exit at the end of a broom, flipping the visors back up and driving off.

Obviously fake. Every time I see Huntsmen spiders on the inter webs, they're as big as cats and they're eating small cows.

Drove some drunk folks home from a bar but forgot a jug of vinegar was on the flood of the back seat. It was instantly smashed when they got in.

Also, one time a pack of deli meat fell under the spare tire and I didn't find it for a while.

My girlfriend found a pair of panties in my car as we were driving to the grocery store.  They weren't hers.

Madstand: My girlfriend found a pair of panties in my car as we were driving to the grocery store.  They weren't hers.


Were they yours?

When I get groceries they go into the trunk for the ride home.  Years ago during the hot summer months a cantaloupe fell fell out of a bag, unbeknownst to me.  3-4 days later, getting into the car after work, holee jeebus, dafuq?  Looked around, nothing.  Rolled the windows down, not to mention I kept searching for the source.

Next time I got groceries I saw this gross rotting thing in my trunk.  I tossed it onto the ground and remembered my lesson.

I always just find pens from bail bond shops in cars I buy. Usually in the defroster vents.

A few years back when I turned on the AC in my Sonata I heard a really loud rhythmic  banging noise- THUMP THUMP THUMP....  I isolated it to the passenger side, under the glove box and so ended up disassembling a bunch of stuff in there to get to the fan unit, which was a vertical cylinder type fan and which was clearly the source of the noise

When I got it out the problem was obvious- a mouse had gotten in the air ducts, chewed through the filter on top of the fan and fallen into the cylinder.  Since the walls of the fan were a lot higher than it was able to reach and the side slots far too narrow to get out, it got trapped and then was centrifuged to death when I turned on the fan.

Once I got it out and cleaned everything up Mrs. Hero asked me what the problem had been.  I just told her "Don't ask"

As a kid I once collected a bucket of river weed thinking it would be great in the fish tank. Left it in the car for a few days. The smell was vomit inducing.

Had plenty of huntsmen in the car, one falling into my lap when I pulled the visor down. I had to pull over, get out of the car and sit for a bit.

And had a very loud cicada caught in the aircon vent one summer, nearly farking deafened me

On a motorcycle trip:
After camping for the night, we headed off to find a local diner for some breakfast....we were on the road for about 30 minutes before finding a suitable place.
Inside, I had placed my helmet on the corner of the table while we sipped some lovely diner coffee. Within a minute, a large earwig came wandering out.
My friend calmly informed me that if that had happened while riding, I was well within my rights to accelerate into the nearest tree. I concurred .

No thankfully they were my grandma's.

Lived on a small alfalfa farm for a few years, the boss kept barn cats to keep the mice/rats down, these weren't pets, they were feral cats but they knew a good free lunch deal so they hung around. You'd get a few litters through the year and the Queens were as unfriendly as the Toms.

A couple of times, after leaving a window down a bit too far, we found a litter of kittens on the floorboard. We'd pluck them out and tuck them in a few places we knew had been bolt holes for a momma cat and she would relocate them at her pleasure.

One time though, we had left a window all the way down and a momma cat had put her litter in the driver's floorboard and gone hunting food or a new hidey-hole safe from the Toms. The next morning I was greeted by three tiny kitten heads and blood on the floorboard. A Tom had heard/smelled them and did what a feral Tom does. Like to have killed my heart. That was the worst thing I ever found in my car. :(

Not horrible.
When Mr. Tarrant and I got married his family had a "tradition" of farking around with things in the bridal suite.
I wasn't down with that kind of thing so my mom spoke to hotel staff to make sure that no one else, not even his "sweet lil ole gramma" got a key.
The Mr. didn't want to disappoint them completely, so he let them "steal" the key and fill our car with balloons and cover the dash with glitter.
No biggie.
Fast forward several months to us bringing the car in for it's pre-winter maintenance. A tech turns the windshield heater on full blast to test it. He is hit by an absolute BLAST of glitter.
We had had to drive home to get the shopvac to clean up the glitter on the dash. Apparently quite a bit got into the vent in the short drive.
The poor tech was called Dancing Queen at the shop for years.

I once bought a car that had no air conditioning and also plastic seats. Either option is a bad idea. Combined, they're a disaster. I bought something that was supposed to make seats like that more comfortable. It was sort of a padded/ventilated pad. One day, I got in the car and started driving. It was summer and I felt some really sharp pains from the seat. That was somewhat normal, but usually subsided as I got accustomed to the horrible seats. But this continued. And started getting worse. And I  couldn't pull over for a while. I finally pulled over and got out. A very angry sweat bee then flew out. When a bee stings you, its stinger stays in you and it dies, so it only stings you once. The sweat bee gets to sing you as many times as it wants (or thinks it needs to in order to get your attention).

I had a friend who had a van that he wasn't meticulous about cleaning. Until the day he was driving on the interstate and a rat (probably a mouse, but it's his story, so I'll tell it his way) ran up the inside of his pant leg.

Never saw him, but a neighbor told me that he had spotted a homeless guy sleeping in my car a few times. Never left any sign or stole anything I noticed missing, so no big deal and glad he found some shelter when he needed it.

Worst thing I ever actually encountered in my car was in high school. The morning after my brother had borrowed my car to go out, I got in to go to school and was met with a horrific stench. Apparently some girl had gotten sick in the back seat and puked a lot after overdoing it on beer and oysters.

The worst I ever had was that something stashed prickly pear fruits under the engine cover. Not bad compared, to a lot of the other stories.

We got a project car with no keys. Still can't open the trunk. So we haven't found anything horrible in the car, but there's a bit of dread every time we look at it.

An elephant.  No, wait, that was in my pajamas.

Once had a rodent get into the box of tissues on the passenger seat.  Put a couple of those easy-set plastic mouse traps under the seats.  Couple days later one trap was sprung with a tiny piece of the animal - could have been a toe, or tip of the tail, or piece of an ear - in the trap.  And that was the last sign of the wildlife in the vehicle.

Until the next spring when I was selling the vehicle.  I had my booster cables and a few small items under the hatch floor by the spare tire.  There was also half a roll of paper towel that the bugger had turned into a huge nest under the spare.  I was tempted to take a closer look, but just decided to throw the whole thing into the garbage.

My "deathly afraid of spiders and bugs in general" buddy messages me, he opened the passenger door, and there was the start of a wasps nest.  Picture showed it was all of 1.5 inches roundish.  "What do I do, what do I do!?"

I look at the picture, the nest is outside the door seals.  I tell him to close the door, drive to the store, buy a can of Raid, spray the nest for a few seconds from a distance, wait five minutes to give them time to die, scrape off remainder of nest.  Ta da!

I get the follow-up text.  He'd bought two cans of raid, used both cans and hosed the nest down until it was a puddle in the parking lot.  I guess that works too.

I kept finding a wasp or two flying around my car. It was summer, and they're not exactly uncommon in the area, so I didn't think much of it at first. Except... there -always- seemed to be at least one around the car. Then I saw one fly under the glass of the passenger side mirror, and then another. Yep, they can fit in there, and yep, they can build a nest in there.

A bag of apples I had forgotten in my car for about three weeks during the summer . Cider when I found them .

That was just a fake post to make people laugh.  None of it happened.

/I have been to a grocery store before.  So that DID happen.
//No girlfriend though.
