I had one of those nasty effers in my bathroom tonight- ON THE CEILING!! I quickly left and got the spray, sprayed it through a barely-cracked door, it jumped, and now I can't find it.

As an aside, for some reason, every time I see one of those, a word that sounds like "rubber duck", but not nearly as squeaky clean, comes out of my mouth. And I only use that word when I see a spider. I have MS and can't help but wonder if the word "spider" was replaced, when my brain damage occurred. Still, I say it and the whole family knows they need to rescue me from a spider!

I was out in the back yard, enjoying the short-lived warm weather on Sunday, and a few seconds after I sat in my lawn chair, the %&*)@$( spider from h*ll comes crawling up over the arm. I screamed loud enough for the entire block to hear me (because everyone else was outside, too), which made the spider jump back into the grass. And then I stomped it to death several times over (think Sean Connery's tarantula scene from Dr. No). Will they never learn...

My children have PTSD from SI spider threads. I showed them the toilet seat spider video that someone posted a while back.

Just last week one of them was saying, in response to a spider comment, "remember the toilette seat spider..."

I think I will start using it as a scare tactic. "Clean your room or the toilette spiders will move in..."

Eight legs, eight rounds ... sounds legit

I went to the bathroom around 5 this morning. While I was sitting there, I saw a HUGE spider on the wall across from me. I mean, the body must have been the size of a baseball... ok, maybe a tennis ball... ping pong ball... ok, maybe more like a really big kidney bean... but that's still huge - after all, with the legs, it looked to be about the size of my palm!

The problem? DH was asleep. And I knew that if I woke him up to take care of it, aside from the general grumpiness I would have gotten from him, the monster from he!! would have been long gone by the time he could have gotten awake enough to get in there and take care of it. And if there's anything worse than a spider in the house, it's seeing a spider which then disappears. It could be anywhere, plotting, planning, waiting for the perfect opportunity to do something like hide in your towel just before you use it. Eeeeeee..... (yeah, I've had that happen to me multiple times before.. with the towel I use for my wet hair! Oh the nightmares!)

So... I considered burning down the house. But I realized that if I did that, I would still have to wake up DH, plus get the cats out of the house, and by the time I did all that I would have no guarantee that the spider didn't disappear and avoid the fiery death it deserves, and would then be targeting me for the attempt on its life.

So, I did the unthinkable. I wrapped about half the roll of toilet paper around my hand, and squished it. It did that thing where it curls up, but I wasn't fooled - I knew it really wasn't dead yet, so I quickly squished again before it could uncurl and hide and then continue to plan unthinkable things for me in the future.

I got it.

Isn't there some sort of congressional medal or something for showing that kind of courage? Especially given that I did all this with my pajamas around my ankles? (Sheesh - sends shivers through me thinking how exposed I was while annihilating that hideous beast!)

Maybe, just maybe, the spiders LIVE in your hair and that's why you keep finding them in your hair towel?? You need to contact an Arachnologist and find out if your hair is infested.

I was in my car at work Sunday and a little spider came down from the ceiling and was dangling in my face. Immediately thereafter, I learned what's worse than a spider in your face. I swatted at him and he fell. Where, I have no idea, but I couldn't sit right for an hour worried about him. He's still in my car as of yesterday. I saw a few strands of Web across the radar and antenna unit on the dash.

osxgirl I am in awe of your amazing bravery in the face of the enemy!

I don't care what time of day or night it is--when I see one, my fiance gets his ass up and takes care of business.

A couple weeks ago, there was a GIANT SPIDER on my bedroom wall. Fiance was in the bathroom...um...taking care of HIS business and I MADE HIM GET OFF THE TOILET MID SHIT to kill it.


Yes. I. Did.

spider killing is on my three questions list I would interview for potential suitors. Can you kill spiders? Can you change light bulbs? Do you know your way around every inch of a woman's body and I mean every inch.

ThoughtIKnewYa posted 4/16/2014 11:08 AM

I found my spider! Apparently, I DID hit it with the spray and it went under the scale to die.

Tred posted 4/16/2014 11:25 AM

TIKY,

Are you sure that it was the same spider? They look a lot alike, the sneaky bastards

When I was about 8, I stepped on a spider to kill it. My older brother told me that I was screwed, because spiders "talk" telepathically, and he just knew that the spider had "told" his family I was killing him. Now all the spiders were going to band together to get their revenge. They were going to wait until I was asleep, and then spin a web around my head to suffocate me.

I didn't sleep for DAYS.

Stupid brothers.

I noticed a spider hurrying along my bedroom floor early this morning. I picked up my shoe and squished it. (Shrugs) It was already raining here anyway.

I got chickens to kill spiders here. Except yesterday, I found two wolf spiders in the house. Those suckers are huge.

We tried drowning one once...he thanked us for the whirlpool.
