So, a couple days ago a bee had a rant about bugs, she found a spider in her bed and she panicked (totally understandable). I live in the tropics, so for me that is almost a daily deal, and I just assumed it was a normal spider, so I bothered her a bit about it…. (not cool I know and I apologize now)
Well karma sucks. It is bed time for me, so I decided to go brush my teeth and use the restroom. I turn on the lights, brush my teeth all is good. I finish up and turn around to pee, I’m starting to do my business and I look up from admiring my ring and looking at my nails and being absent minded and bees I shit you not there was a tarantula about a 5 inches away from my foot MOVING towards me. Bees I had my pants around my ankles, do you understand how vulnerable you are when you have your pants around your ankles? I RAN out of the bathroom, left all dignity behind me and called my friend who is over right now to deal with it because she is not bothered by spiders, cokroaches freak her out, but a tarantula, yeah no biggie.
It suffices to say that after that little freak scene I am having doubts about using my own bathroom. The problem is bees, not a single window or door is open, how the HELL did it get into my house and make to my bathroom???? This bee has learned her lesson

@minipenguin: I would have passed out. Just died, pants around my ankles and all.

I would have been crying but I’m crazy afraid of bugs, especially centipedes, silverfish, and spiders!! Where do you live? I don’t want to go there, with giant spiders I’d probably have a heart attack, especially if I was stuck in the bathroom with my pants down!! Ugh!!!!!! 🙁

@Duckie731: I live in Costa Rica, the country is amazing so dont get put off by the bugs (we have a lot of them, especially spiders and centipedes so maybe it isnt the best idea actually) but the rest of the country definitely makes up for it 🙂
@s2bmrscook: Yeah, it almost happened, in my entire life I have never had such a bad bug experience ugh!!! My friend has made so much fun of me, she’s enjoying it waaay too much lol

Oh that’s not fun!
My ex and I were bringing in bags of shopping one night and standing on the porch unlocking the door. The next minute he starts beating me with one of the shopping bags filled with meat and dog food. I started yelling out WTF are you doing – turns out there was a massive huntsman spider on my back. Could he not have calmly got it off of me without beating me with groceries? Spiders make us do crazy things 😀

I’m weird, similar to your friend… Tarantulas… I’ll get a shock seeing one where I didn’t expect it but I won’t actually be afraid and I can handle it.
But show me a tick, or one of those giant centipede things with the long legs that move at light speed…

Oh. HELL. NO. I’m with the other Bees – I’d be DOT (Dead On Toilet) too! That or scream so loudly the entire apartment complex would hear it and send a swat team to my place. Ugh. Hell no.

Before clicking on this thread, I was prepared to read about a cheating ex who went bald prematurely or something. I was not prepared to have pretty much shat brix reading about a tarantula that materialized from nowhere! Seriously guys, I have to pee so bad right now, but I think I’m just gonna have to hold it for now.
I don’t know what I would have done in your situation OP, but I think I would burned my entire house down trying to kill it with fire.

Hahaha. Oh my goodness! Karma schools us all sometimes, don’t worry too much. I would not have handled that anywhere near as well as you did. I might have fainted in all honesty.
