    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...

    Evil!

    Spiders are pure evil. They're constantly plotting against me, I just know it. I mean, they have so many legs to rub together while pondering their next diabolical strike to surprise me, or make me walk into their webs and spend the next 10 minutes trying to get it off :P

    I admit my phobia is completely irrational

    and for no apparent reason... But the pure terror I process when in contact with a spider is real! Spider on the doorway? No way will I enter until it's gone! "It's only a daddy-long-legs!", yeah well you'd still be scared If a murderer came at you with a butter knife! It's not...

    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...

    I can't stand the *******.

    They scare the living **** out of me, and ones big enough can reduce me to tears, or make me scream like a little girl. Hate them with a passion.

    I do not like spiders

    and I really never have. I used to be interested into them, but I always killed them on sight. When I was little I brought out all of my army toys because I wanted to declare war on all of the spiders in the world.

    I Hate Spiders Soooo Much!!

    Seriously, I've never met anyone who hates them as much as me! My boyfriend laughs at me because I can spot them a mile away! I cry if they come near me and I can't sleep if one has been in my bedroom! It's so pathetic! I wish I wasn't so scared!

    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...
