    I'm scared of spiders.

    When I see them I run away. When they crawl on the wall I let them b. I don't mess with them, they don't mess with me.

    Earlier Tonight

    Earlier tonight I decided I needed to pee. But after closing the door and turning around, I discovered there was a spider [or what looked like one, I didn't stay around to look very closely] on the toilet lid. Needless to say, I got out of there fast. I then discovered...

    Trembling

    Spiders and I don't get along. We've never got along. They hate me and I hate them. Once I was on my bed doodling on a scrap of paper when I feel this tingling on my bare foot. It was a spider. A few days later I'm having a bath. I reached down for my towel, and the same spider...

    Like, seriously, if you say it in French,

    I get goosebumps over my arms. Ugh. It all started when I was 8. So, I had just moved to USA and I was in second grade. One day, the teacher decided to take us to a museum, a BUG Museum (that is an actual thing). Great idea, Ms Mills! So we took the bus got there and went in a...

    my job has spiders on steroids.

    ... they can sniff out an open can of soda and come out of hiding... I should not be able to see their individual hairs on their legs from five feet away... shuddering just thinking about it...

    Okay, I'm not scared of spiders,

    I'm fascinated by them. They're really neat creatures when you get right down to it. But I'm surrounded by arachnophobes, especially my mother. The number of times she's had me get rid of a spider for her is ridiculous...

    God I hate them! Everytime I see a larger one I

    wish I've died before seeing it. Somehow it seems hard to imagine sharing the same world with them.

    Scared To Kill A Spider

    When I see a spider I scream, run out of the room and if my grandma's not there to get rid of it I wait in a different room standing up because I'm scared they're all over the place now. I also never let anyone kill a spider because I'm scared it will multiple or it's spider...

    Taunted! Jeans tucked in socks,

    A Spider Tried to Kill Me

    I am not sure why, but I am absolutely terrified of spiders, to the point that it is a very real phobia and affects my life. I will not go out of my house at night during warmer weather because that is when they come out of hiding, and I am deathly afraid I will get dropped...

    I woke up last night having still left the

    light on in my room, and noticed a black spec out of the corner of my eye reflected in the mirror. Turning around, it was a HUGE house spider, chunky body and long legs. Oh god, I thought. I weighed up the options. Shall I just switch the light off knowing this imposter was here...

    Last year this big spider camped out on my

    porch. I found that I am afraid of spiders, but if I did not touch it or it did not touch me I was ok. I slowly exposed myself to it a little everyday. I even got kinda curious about seeing what it was doing from a safe distance.

    There Just Sooo Scary!

    I don't like spiders.

    Especially small ones. I'd kill them or use the vacuum hose & suck them up. The worst ones are the ones with egg sacs. ( shudders while writing this). I even saw one 2 years ago in the bathroom sink the size of a pop bottle lid.

    Wolf Spider Attack! (Dramatic Writing)

    There are two things I know I'm afraid of in this world. 1.) Spiders and 2.) Bigger spiders A few years ago I came across this gargantuan wolf spider in my tiny closet sized room at my mom's house. I am naturally an extremely messy, unorganized person so on a weekly basis I had...

    HATE Spiders.

    We moved in our house 2 years ago, and I am still battling the spiders. The former owner allowed them to take over the basement and garage.  They are even in the backyard in the trees and grass and plants.  It is disgusting. I hate spiders so much I've developed a...

    Rules 1-6

    1. If I see it, no matter where it is, it needs to die. 2. I cannot touch or stomp or go within 3 feet of it. 3. If it is on me I will need to visit the ER (one time i burned my shoulder with my hairdryer, because one was on me) 4. If it moved under any furniture it will be...

    I couldn't tell you how many times my husband

    has heard me say, "KILL IT OR I'M MOVING OUT!!!". Not only am I scared to death of spiders (and all other bugs), I apparently must micro-manage the killing process of them as well. 1. No, you cannot capture it and let it go back outside because it must learn the consequences...

    They're more disgusting

    than scary. I can't stand bugs, I don't like them at all. If there's one in my room I call my Mum in to squash it or get rid of it and if she doesn't then I'll refuse to sleep in my room.

    Last week, I saw a Whitetail spider(native to

    NZ) on my door. I got a lid from the shaving gel can and trapped it. It was quick, but I got it. Bites from those spiders, leave itchy bites worse then mosquitoes.
