Melinda Major, a paralegal from Nashville, Tennessee woke up to a terrifying moment on a recent trip to Memphis, Tennessee.
In a Facebook post, Major described how she awoke in her hotel room feeling something on her arm. She first though it was her husband trying to snuggle but quickly realized that he wasn’t there as she was traveling alone. The first thing she saw when opened her eyes was a snake slithering up her arm.
“I freaking flipped out!” she wrote. “Talk about my ninja skills coming out…I threw that sucker across the bed against the headboard and stayed on top of the desk until the manager got there to get it!”
The slithering reptile ended up being a harmless garden snake and wasn’t venemous. How it got into the hotel room and Major’s bed is still a mystery. Major said the frightening ordeal wont prevent her from staying at the hotel in the future. She has stayed at the hotel many times over the years and that she would “most definitely” go back.
“As horrified as I am of snakes, they acted on it quickly,” Major said “They were very helpful.”
Major’s Facebook post stirred some strong emotions with one commenter saying “I would have died!”
Another commenter said “I would have been in the next county and kept on running!!!! I hate those suckers!”
