In Moments Like This, I Need A MAN!

For the last two days, whenever I walked my stairs, a stench filled my nostrils.... I didn't realize the stench came from my balcony until this morning when I went there to unblock the rain water that was stuck in the drainage hole.

To my shock and dismay, I found this!!
 A Decomposed Rat!
(quickly took my camera and snap a picture)

Then I stood there, staring at it for a few moments, trying to think what to do... Should I take a broom and sweep it into the dustpan?  Then I took a stick (as in the picture) and gave it a slight shove...  and ... GOSH!!... Beneath the rat skin, BIG FAT MAGGOTS WERE WRIGGLING!!!  urgghhh... urghhhh.... puke!!
 
By now, the stench was really nauseating! 

Eventually what I did was this.. (imagine!)... I took two plastic bags and wore them on my right hand as gloves... and with just two seconds, took up the dead rat with maggots and shoved them into another plastic bag.. darn it...  I really wanted to vomit and cry!!

In moments like this... I NEED A MAN!
