    Spiders are scary. I dislike them greatly.

    All spiders.. Small, big, thin, fat, hairy, bald.. They all scare me and make my skin crawl.. The big ones most people keep as pets don't bother me as much, as long as they don't come out of their cage..

    Yuck. Had to get one in my room.

    Daddy long legs. The most common kind. They love every room of the house and in any spot. Was above a poster of mine I had to spray which I'm not happy about. Just hope I didn't damage the picture. Spider flew in the air (the fly spray which releases a lot of air) and I was...

    SPDERS RUIN MY DAY! I was sweeping up my

    workout room which is in my basement. My water heater and furnace are in the same room and when I swept around them I found...SPIDERS. I stopped sweeping, stopped my workout, loaded up my son and went to the store. Fml

    Small spiders keep falling from the ceiling

    and crawling onto my arms or in front of my face. It's like they have a game that if you come back from touching the giant alive you get to be an adult or something. I do not like it one bit.

    eyes when all of a sudden they were very wide and open! I looked at where he was looking, (behind my head) and there was a spider. What a good cat. Also, there was this huge spider on my curtain a few weeks ago, biggest one ive seen in this house yet, and even a handyman who...

    Scary

    I am terrified of spiders.  I can’t stand them in my house and I pay the Orkin man to insure that I don’t see any.  Unfortunately I saw one the other day along with ants marching outside my home.  I have called the Orkin man and he will be to my rescue...

    One time I was on the motorway with my mother.

    There was a spider on the dash and it was coming closer. I can't remember how big it was. But it was about to crawl on ME. I was near squealing in fear. She couldn't stop on the freeway so she desperately found an exit off and parked in a driveway...of like a funeral home or...

    They Are Not Normal!

    I cannot even begin to describe how bad my fear is of them! They actually freak me out! I live in England. The biggest spider over here is probably gotta be like daddy long legs, so they aren't that big. I mean my fear is that bad even the tiniest of spiders drives me crazy. A...

    Dreadful Creatures They Are

    I hate spiders. When I was either five or seven, I was showering and somehow had a spider crawl up my wet leg. How he managed to do that while water was dripping down, I have yet to know. This week (week 43) I have encountered three spiders. On Monday I woke from a nap on the...

    So we have all survived the spider incident at the house. I breathed a big sigh of relief. I have got my house back and I can sleep easy. Then as I was sitting on my sofa my daughter screams there was a spider directly above my head. It was a little one but still it was scary...

    They are the most horrifying creatures on the

    planet. I wish they would all move to the Amazon or something or just stay out of my house. I'm grateful I don't live in an area with tarantulas. They would probably literally give me nightmares if i found one in my room.

    I have a bit of a routine myself

    which I do sometimes. I inspect every corner of my room for spiders before going to sleep. If I forget, I get my phone or ipad to shine on the walls and inspect. Not very reliable but it makes me feel better.

    And it seems that as I get older it only gets worse. If I see one no matter what size I am afraid the rest of the day. I have a routine before I take a shower or get in bed to check for spiders. I cry like a little baby. And I have a fear that there will be one in my car well I...

    HATE it when they are hanging outside the front

    door and you need to go outside or hanging from the ledge of a door you need to walk through. Yet you are terrified as you walk past they will drop down on you. About a year ago I went to open the door at night. As soon as I did so, a lovely (sarcasm) spider drops down to greet...

    They give me the creeps.

    If it's huge, I will run out of the room. I've been brave and killed them, especially for someone. I'll be the hero! As long as it's not too big. The creepiest spider I've seen is the garden spider. It's the biggest I've seen outside of a cage. Stinkin' creepy.
