Alright we have pigeons on our roof. I am not thrilled. These critters keep making noises at night, cooing noises, that are not exactly thrilling to me. Some may like these little cooing noises similar to what their prettier cousins called “doves” make.
The problem is that these birds were not invited. If they were nicer and cleaned up after themselves that would be one thing. If they contributed to the greater good, I might be OK with this visit.
But, not only do they make obnoxious noises, they also invited their friends and they are making a royal mess on our roof. The birds are going to the bathroom in a place that isn’t a bathroom.
It is a real pain to have to deal with these uninvited guests. I will have to get someone to remove these pesky things. Have you ever had to deal with people like that? Do you know what I am talking about? There are people that no matter what positive things are happening will always try to rain on your parade (sounds better than pigeon pooping on you, right?)
It is hard to know how to deal with these kind of difficult people. We can’t hire an exterminator. (At least, I don’t think that is an option.) In some cases they may be next door neighbors, bosses, family members and even church folks. We can’t always get away from them.
So, we have to deal with ‘em. It takes great patience. Sometimes we just have to speak the truth in love. Other times, they can’t handle the truth so we have to determine our own threshold of pain. We may have to spend less time with them.
The main thing is that we need to deal with the issue; just like pigeons, they won’t go away on their own.
