AW.   You poor thing.   Hopefully Fiance gets there soon.  Try to snap a photo!  I am dying here.


Once, I came back from a vacation to see what may (or may not) have been a cockroach on the floor of our first crapy apartment together.  FI was still on vacation at his mother’s house (3 hrs away).  I sat on the kitchen table with my cat all night.  I called Fiance in hysterics at about 9pm.  Sure enough, around 12:30, he came through the door, having drove all the way home just to get the “thing” (that I call a cockroach and he calls a “beetle”).  Gotta love our men.

That sounds EXACTLY like every spider incident I’ve ever had, big or small.  Once my Fiance was on a trip in New York while I was home alone.  A really big one was on the wall by the front door at midnight when I went to take the dog out.  I yelled for my dog to go back in the bedroom and called 5 people to come kill the spider before someone would finally come do it.

I’m holding my breath for you too!

Hahahaha! I’m sorry but that’s hilarious. Not that you’re trapped by a spider because I’m terrified of them but about the spider under the glass.

We will sometimes get camel crickets (<–do not google them, unless you want the crap scared out of you) and I won’t go in our basement if I see them – usually I send a puppy to chase after them and properly maul them to death.

OMG OMG OMG!!!!! i totally just went into an itching and screaming frenzy when reading this.

i, too, am a huuuuge huuuuge baby when it comes to anything with more than 4 legs.

we had an incident not too long ago when i got up in the middle of the night to go tinkle. on the way back i thought i saw something move on the floor, went to the light to flick it on to see what was going on and theres a spider the size of my palm staring back at me.

needless to say i scared the crap out of FH screaming, and was paralized in fear until FH snapped me out of it to go get the raid since this thing would NOT be killed with a shoe – it was THAT big.

took about a half can of raid for that baby to stop moving.


hope you get it the heck out of the house!!!

I would FREAK THE F*CK OUT!!!! I am terrified of spiders and bugs, but Fiance IS EVEN MORE AFRAID OF SPIDERS!!! Any other bug he will get for me, but he’ll scream like a girl and push me in front of him with spiders. LMAO!!! Good luck 🙂

haha I totally get like that with bugs but one time I had to kill it myself because it was hours before my husband would get home and I literally took a wack at it and it was laying on the ground dying and I couldn’t summon up the courage to pick it up and throw it in the trash until like 30 mins later because I was so disgusted.

Camrie, the house I lived in during college would get those in the basement too! So awful.

I’ve been stranded by centipedes, spiders, mice, a cockroach.. um. everything is gross. And then there was a time I went camping and there were frogs in the shower. I am tormented.

Omg how gross!!

I had to laugh though because I’m the spider killer in our relationship. Everytime my Fiance see’s a spider he “swears” it bit him. He’s a guys-guy & you would never expect it looking at him! haha…

I hope you’re rescued soon!!

I am glad that he came to your rescue. I am the same way. I once covered my ceiling with raid and household cleaner trying to kill a wasp.
