Do you have any qualms about killing them? Am I a heartless bastard for squashing spiders when they annoy me?
if a big strong man (like myself) killed one?
but i don't like killing them, so i usually shoo them out of the window. it takes ages.
I saw a huge spider in my kitchen on Sunday morning and haven’t been in there since. I will hire you to come and kill it for me. *whimper* I can’t afford to eat out anymore! :(
then you can't afford my services, sorry.
Shoe? book? banana? HELP ME PLEASE
or just chuck some industrial strength acid on it?
OR I could try and vacuum it up. I have been thinking long and hard about this. The spider is TOTALLY winning this battle.
that's a good idea, you could keep a safe distance away then.
I think for me, the urge to eat would overcome the fear of the spider.
I have been buying lots of sandwiches and eating a lot of pizza. I may die soon.
Turns out I am a big wimp.
with a pint glass and some paper then.
Maybe you could capture the postman and make him do it
I don’t think I have any glasses that big..
I would forget the spider and just DANCE
two birds, one stone.
I'm not sure how you'd capture him though to be honest, although i'm sure his ego wouldn't let him say no if you asked him.
but it wont kill it so make sure you block the end of the vacuum so it cant crawl out...and eat you
then slip some paper under it. open the back door and *launch*
be tough on crime
actually come over and catch it for you?
Are you my postman?
You KNOW I'm not
Do I really?...Well actually yes I do, my postman is old and rides a bike. Do you ride a bike? Will you really come and kill the spider? You could ride your bike over now..
I'm at simons.
You could pay for me to come tomorrow
I WILL do this. I know where you live.
I might actually make you come over and remove it
Call me in the morning then...
That's just TOO afraid of the things. Come on, you need to keep going back and checking.
Mum has a plastic thing that has a fan with a grill over it at one end of a see-through tube. You turn the fan on to suck and then insects travel up the tube but aren't harmed so that you can poke the plastic tube out of the window and turn off the fan and they'll drop out or fly away.
but yes I am too afraid
you are a heartless bastard. Killing something just because you happen to be scared of it is a horrible thing to do.
Saying that, i am terrified of spiders, but when it comes down to killing them vs picking them up with a pint glass & chucking them out the window, i'll face my fear.
My thoughts exactly :)
the spider is probably more scared of me than i am of it, and with good reason.
That doesnt help me when there is a massive one scuttling across my floor and stopping me sleeping at 4am though *shudder*
They are bastards.
I gently pick them up and place them outside where they will surely die in the harsh conditions of west wiltshire. At least they won't soil my flipflop though.
