    Funny TRUE story, that happened in my father's rv down in Tucson...watching Arachnaphobia, when I saw a tarantula quickly running up the front of the cabinets I had my feet propped against (I was sitting on the floor holding my 3 month old at the time). I yelled "Spider!" My dad laughed, telling me I was paranoid. His wife also laughed, until they saw it crawl across the tv screen and onto the ceiling where it paused for a moment.

    My dad sat up quickly and exclaimed "Holy Sh**! It's a tarantula!"

    I smirked and replied "Told ya so!"

    We caught him in a bowl with a lid and set him back outside.

    Several years ago, I was cleaning a horse stall. The horse was in the stall and I had the wheelbarrow in the doorway. I moved the salt block and tray a little bit and this huge spider scrambled away and up the wall. I bolted, leaped over the wheelbarrow, and was halfway down the barn aisle before I had time to even think. I sent someone in to dispose of it, and I never moved a salt block and tray again.

    Unfortunately, I wear the pants in the relationship now [boyfriend wouldn't touch the door handle to the room the spider was in with a ten foot pole], so I've had to get much braver. There is much shrieking, squealing, jumping and profanity, but I can successfully squish a spider.

    I've killed bugs before, yes. I don't like to, but sometimes it's unavoidable. I prefer to respect nature....this stems from my Cherokee roots. Spiders are nature's pest control. They eat the flies and other insects that we detest, therefore to kill a spider we are only hurting ourselves...

    Recently I saw a spider in my room, I let out a girlish shreek and then killed it. I've been seeing a bunch of creepy crawlies around the house because it's getting to be fall, I don't like it at all. I don't care about a spider outside, but one being in the house- especially in my room- freaks me out.

    Yup, that's me..

    I used to work the 8pm to 12am shift when the kids were small, so got used to coming into the house as quietly as possible so as not to disturb anyone.

    One night I came in, reached around to switch on the light as I came in through the door, only to see a HUGE freaking great spider, I swear that he JUMPED off the wall and landed on me, and with the shock I took my hand off of the light switch, without putting the light fully on. So now here I am, a fully grown up mother of 2, alone in the dark with a spider, that is probably on me somewhere


    So what do I do, well what any sane sensible grown up mother of two does in that situation, start screaming, dancing up and down and pulling my clothes off. The Doberman, who up until that point had been asleep, she had registered that mum was home, no need to worry, suddenly decides that it must be a mass break in, so she start barking at the top of her voice.

    Husband wakes from a deep and settled sleep, and come charging to the top of the stairs and can't work out if the dog is attacking his half dressed screaming wife, or if she is defending me against an as yet unseen attacker..............

    Took me a while to live that one down










    PS the doberman ate the spider

    Haha, Golden! That's hilarious!

    I know the feeling. I came home from being out one night [hadn't been drinking] and I go into the bathroom. I had just started to pull my pants down and turn to sit on the toilet when I caught sight of a giant spider looming at the base of the toilet. I managed not to shriek, but I ran out the door with my pants at half-mast into my room. I held it all night and waited until I got to work the next morning to use the bathroom again.
