Pesky possum destroys office before hiding and looking sorry

A pesky possum destroyed an office before hiding and looking extremely contrite.

Now, I'm sure most of us have toyed with the idea of taking our frustration out on the very building that caused it. Throwing papers into the air, flipping over chairs, and then quitting our jobs in a blaze of glory, but very few of us actually do it. And if this story is anything to go by, this possum decided to wreck Bree Blakeman's office for the hell of it.

In a now-viral tweet, Blakeman wrote: "Walked into my office and thought someone must have broken in because it looks trashed... and then I saw this little sweetie covering behind my computer."

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, she said: "It wasn't until I went to check my computer on the far side of the room that I noticed a fluffy little face staring at me from behind the computer and that's when I also noticed the toilet droppings and urine everywhere too. It all made sense.

"It seemed resigned and of course a bit shy and scared. Going by the number of books that had fallen from the shelves, I think it must have tried to climb up the shelves to get up through the ceiling again a number of times. So I think it was a bit exhausted too."

While this possum might have destroyed the office without provocation, this dad forced his son to destroy his PS4: 

Blakeman said she felt bad for the possum. It was just doing its thing but was now in a very sticky situation.

She continued: "I gave it some water, a piece of carrot, and a few kind words before closing the door and calling the relocation people.

"It wasn't uncomfortable for me at all. It was very sweet."

However, the pesky possum ended up staying in Blakeman's office for a lot longer than she anticipated when an unexpected hailstorm prevented its removal.

But eventually, on Wednesday morning, it managed to make its own way out. Good for you, little bud.

This story is a testament to the fact that even in the Animal Kingdom, smashing up the office is never a good idea.
