Rat in your trousers

I remember my dads story of how a rat ran up in house trouser leg, yes dad we heard this before we would all say as he went into detail of a furry rodent running up his trousers and him being not bothered until his friend hit is with a stick. I was in a pub yard checking a rat box when the landlord enquired how's your dad? not sen him for a while . I said he's good I treat here now and he is in the office drinking tea and complaining how he is so busy and never gets a break. Did he ever tell you the story of their rat in his trousers? Oh no he tells the customers this story too, yes lots of times, but don't believe him he makes things up, it's not he said I saw it ! now this is fun I thought I will get the truth. he said your dada and hid friend were chasing a rat around the yard and it ran up inside his overalls, he just stood there and said to his friend hit it Fred hit it. Poor fred was not sure was it better to try and risk missing and hitting my dads leg? he paused and the rat went up over and then down the other sid. I have to admit I never believed him but I do now.
