I Have Trouble Killing a Spider

    Yessss

    Okay, well... 1) I feel bad killing any living thing be it ant, mosquito, fish, spider or plant. I actually feel bad "killing" non-living things as well like a plate or what have you. 2) Spiders freak me the hell out. I'm terrified of spiders. I have to work...

    Saved One From My Boss

    Once my boss and I spotted a spider making it's way across the floor at work. She was going to step on it but then I stopped her. I took a piece of paper and made the spider climb onto it, then safely placed it outside. My boss thought I was crazy.

    Ew

    I don't know what I'm going to do if I ever live alone. I suck at killing anything except ants. Most of the time I get someone else, but I'm also unwilling to wake anyone up to kill a spider for me, so usually if I'm the only one up I'm just like, "You were lucky...

    Apologies

    It is not conscience based, it is based on a disgust of the squashed spider remains and what if i don't kill it right and it runs half squashed around, all over the apartment, seeking revenge that night whilst i am asleep i hate earwigs most of all- that is why my hair always...

    I get pretty creeped out by spiders.

    I don't like them one bit. There's an old superstition that spiders are a sign of good luck, so I don't kill them ...for the most part...well, maybe just sometimes. We lived in Germany and they have absolutely huge spiders there, they hang in the windows of the basement, this...

    I'd Feel Terrible

    I don't have trouble killing flies or wasps or anything but I'd feel terribly guilty if I ever killed a spider. Maybe it comes from reading Charlotte's Web and James and the Giant Peach about twenty times each when I was a kid. It would just seem wrong and cruel. My best friend...

    My Flat In the Sticks

    We had a canal at the end of our garden. And in the summer we were prone to various insects and spiders and anything else creepy to venture into the flat. My friend gaves us this hoover thing to suck up the spiders so we didn't have to actually kill them, or get too close to...
