    OK I can't help it.  Bugs are gross-looking with their little beady eyes and furry six legs.  And any of them could bite, you just never know what ones will!  I am not prejudice either... I hate all bugs equally.  I don't go out of my way to kill them though...

    Stupid Fear Of Bugs!!!

    I have a severe case of entomophobia,

    which is have an extreme fear of a class or classes of insects. My class is all things flying. I'm even scared of butterflies! My family thinks I'm being stupid, but it's really something I'm scared about. I like spiders better than bugs. Sometimes I feel like no one gets me.

    Like the Commercial Says

    I like the new commercial where the lady says she has a thing about bugs in their house. I feel that way. I don't like them on the outside either excluding butterflies and ladybugs but my main issue is when they come inside. I'll only try to hurt them if they try to hurt me first...

    I'm pretty much not afraid of anything, but bugs totally freak me out. At least one always appears in my bathroom at night. They always keep from entering the bathroom. Kinda funny, I know.But they're so crunchy and fast and they look like they can eat you alive

    If I could ask God just one question it would be "Why did you create ROACHES?" They are the most disgusting creatures. They scare the living **** out of me. Especially the really big ones. One time I moved into this house and I didn't know that they had roaches. I didn't see any...

    Why do they have to exist lol

    and why can't they stay their *** outside where they belong instead of inside the house. I'd be much happier.

    Not all bugs, just certain types really.

    Namely spiders, centipedes, earwigs, and beetles. Just the sight of those things can make my skin crawl. Ugh!
