Spiders

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Are there secret people out there going round feeding all the spiders this year? They are massive :(. It makes me not want to pack as i don't wanna move things only to be scared shitless.

I really could do with some sort of help to overcome this fear.

    I know what you mean! I was sitting giving myself a pedicure last night, and this huge black hairy spider ran past. Ew. It makes me shiver thinking about it. Apparently it went down a hole, so my Dad cellotaped it up. I still refused to go back in the room though. :(

    Yep, there is some sort of conspiracy this summer :(
    The worst bit is that none of my housemates are arachnophobic, and none of them have seen them in their rooms, whereas I've had several nights on the sofa due to some enormous ones wandering round on my walls :mad: :(

    They also lay eggs in your genitals, and eat your sexual organs from the inside out. Apparently.. :eek:

    In july my parents went on holiday and the day after they'd gone, I opened my wardrobe to pick a top to wear only to find a big man eating spider on one of my top sleeves. :(

    I shut the wardrobe door quickly and for some reason txt my friend telling her and saying I had no one to rescue me. She suggested I got the hoover to hoover it up and so I plucked up all my courage and tried that. However, the pesky little mite ran away quicker than the hoover could zap it up.

    So I txt her again, telling her the bad news. :(

    She offered to come over to my house with 2 of our mates (who she was with at the time) and look for it. Reluctantly (and in my dressing gown), I agreed. 20 minutes later they turned up and went through my wardrobe looking for this spider. They never found it and for days afterwards I was always scared of going in my wardrobe and I'd always shake it like mad to check there were no spiders on it.

    Yes, frankly. They grow up to 6ft tall, and walk, and chew your face off too. Then you just have a bloody manky face, and you run around screaming, until they chew your legs off, and you finally bleed to death. Then the babies explode out your jeans a la 'Alien' :D

    That's a bad enough thought...
    Though i wouldn't mind if it was a spider made out of chocolate... Why can't all spiders be made out of chocolate? I wouldn't have a problem with them then!

    Spiders catch & kill flies.
    Now what would you prefer to be in your house, A spider or a fly?

    I know what I'd pick!

    *runs*


    omfg, I accidentally managed to step on one the other week, it was huge and I felt it sorta squish. Thank God it didn't stick to my sock, otherwise I would have shit myself! Thing is, it was still alive after, writhing around with broken legs. So Mum killed it, I wouldn't go anywhere near it.

    N.B. I cannot go anywhere near spiders, I did accidentally tread on it, I didn't see it and felt guilty for at least 8 hours afterwards :(

    You can't kill them!
    Has noone here ever seen Phil Jupitus's routine on spiders and his fear of them?

    It's hard to explain, basically he reckons as a small child his nan told him a poem which basically meant fuck with spiders and you die :p So he can never kill them. This usually involves him even with a fear of them having to get them out of the house alive involving a postcard and a cup. I probably really havn't done it justice. Some of it was on Room 101 last week.

    spiders are harmless

    I don't know what all the fuss is about ! OKay I don't like the look of spiders and I don't like how they make webs out side my house I keep walking into but they are very important and harmless creatures.
    A blue bottle eats dead flesh , lands eggs on you and your food and spends his day looking for shit to land on before landing on your dinner. They are noisey and sickening, plus they always fly at your face.
    I would prefer a spider , which is a highly advanced insect and does not lay eggs and shit on people. The mother stays with her eggs until they hatch , which shows maternal instinct. They are very clean and carry no diseases and they will NEVER attack a human unless genuinley provocked as in stood on !

    I don't like them but I would rather them than a Big horse fly or a feckin Blue bottle !!

    Worst insects also include Moths ( for flying into the face , looking evil and eating clothes )
    and daddy long legs ( for also flying into your face as if they have had about ten pints )

    Its not a fear of being hurt, its them crawling on you ect. Same as some people are scared of heights, the height won't hurt them but its just a fear.
    Most people are scared of something.
