Terrifying Owl Escorted Out Of House On a Swiffer

The natural sequence of events when you come home and an owl is just chillin' in your kitchen

If you ever come home to find an owl hanging out in your kitchen, just stay calm and find a Swiffer, like the guy in this video. He (understandably) became hysterical when he saw an owl perched above his kitchen sink, but luckily for us, decided to record the whole thing.
