Ha. Yeah, the snails will have come in your tank on a plant or something. Have you recently bought any new plants? If so that's where they will have came from. Before my new setup with live plants and new fish, I had no snail problems, I had a look in my LFS' plant section and there were snails all inside it. One tip I've recieved prior to this issue is whenever I get a new plant to soak it in salty water, which apparently kills the snail but not the plant.
Not all tank snails eat plants though, so don't just write them off if you ever want them. Great snails are things like Assassin snails, I don't have any myself but I'm aware that they don't eat an awful lot, are fine kept by themselves and they also eat other snails. So if you want you could get an assassin snail and he'll do all the hard work for you. They're quite pretty too in my opinion :)
