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 on by one.
I almost got into a car accident once because of one of those creepy little buggers.... it must have been hiding in the visor...this ugly white spider with a fat belly...anyway, it plopped onto my hand when I was driving down a busy road and I nearly flipped!! I almost steered the car right into oncoming traffic!!! Somehow I managed to keep some of my head, and I quickly smacked it onto the seat, then pulled oover and got out of my car. I was physically ill; I was shaking, and couldn't bring myself to get back into the car. It took me a good 20 minutes to relax and talk myself into getting back in, after carefully searching every inch of the car for more.
