We all have our phobias of creepy crawly critters.  Some  ppl can't stand snakes, or mice, or other equally creepy things.

My biggest creepy crawly thing that I can't stand are.....


I just can't stand them!  I have a whole host of reasons as to why I hate spiders

  •  The webs....ever walked into one by accident?  EW!  Gets all in your hair, and then there's a chance of getting a spider on you!  Double EWWW!!
  •  All of the legs - they have too damn many! It's just unnatural!  They are made for crawling on you creepily with all those damn legs!
  • I see them crawling around and I'm all like.....THEY'RE OUT TO GET ME!!!!!!!!!!!
  • The jumping - did you know some of them JUMP?  Holy shit! Those are creepy as hell! I hate those fuckers!
Now a story for ya.  I was at work one day, just doing my job and turned around to get something and I saw the biggest spider I have ever seen.  I think he looked a little like this:

This picture I borrowed for illustration purposes from Hyperbole and a Half, Ally has a similar irrational fear of spiders.

My spider looked a lot like this except mine had hairy long legs.  I learned later it was probably a wolf spider. 

I completely FREAKED THE FUCK OUT at work.  I screamed, jumped up and ran away from my office.  Someone, I don't know who, came over and killed the Mutant Killer Ninja Terminator Spider so that I could get back to work, but I looked over my shoulder for a month at least to make sure he didn't come back to life or that his ghose didn't come back to get me.

I don't fuck around with spider's y'all. 

Now that I'm done writing this post, I'll have nightmares tonight I'm sure.  Great...........

I don't mean to laugh but it's funny in a sad kind of way because I can relate to the story. I am this way with any kind of bug, but the worst for me are roaches. I grew up in Louisiana and I swear to you the roaches are the size of 747's and they FLY at you!!! Talk about nightmares. That is one thing I do not miss about home.

I found your blog on a Friend Finding Friday Link and I saw your SPIDER blog. I hate them too and am also of the understanding that they are out to get me! LOL

LOL, I know how you feel. Especially with Wolf Spiders. I had them at a store I worked in as big as my hand. They were pretty scary!
