    than a quarter) in the shower, naturally I got out of the shower, put a towel on, and ran out of the bathroom. all my dad did was tell me to stop being a baby and finish showering, and then he got after me for getting water all over the hardwood floors, thankfully my mom got the...

    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.

    I just killed one in the bathroom.

    It was soo gross!!! Luckily it was a small one. I hate those things! Especially when I go camping and there's wolf spiders and daddy long legs! Yuck!

    Hi. Remember when I posted about my neighbour

    having a big white spider on the crown of his roof? I want to say that there's the same kind of spider in the top corner of the window in the horticultural room where I work. I noticed it yesterday as I was getting out the greens mower.

    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...

    Why am I scared of a spider - I am thousands of

    times bigger, can move faster (especially when I see one!), I am armed with a shoe! Can someone get one out of my bath?

    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.

    Erg, I don't know what it is

    but I cannot stand spiders. From the diminutive daddy long legs to the titanic tarantulas, just keep them away from me.

    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...

    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...

    I have a deathly fear of spiders.

    I was backing up and glances forward and noticed a white spider walking on my wind shield, so I threw the car into drive and reparked. I then looked down and there was a black and grey, terrifying, jumpy spider by my leg so I threw myself into the passenger seat. I've been here...

    Spiders are cool, when they're contained.

    I hate the wild ones that give you a little surprise by running across your desk when you're working.

    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.

    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.

    Tiny ones, big ones, they are all the same for-

    they are pretty to look at from afar, but scary as hell when they are either on my property or coming at me... It's funny how when I'm at home, though, I can't confront them without yelling and jumping up and slapping off "the spiders everywhere on me" feeling... Yet at school...
