How big was it??? This is pretty normal where my parents live, but we don’t really see them in the city.

*raises hand*

I would be doing EXACTLY what you are doing. Just reminded me of a (now) funny story…

Fiance and I had to go help a friend move a car, that was for some odd reason parked in the field behind his friend’s house. It also had a flat tire from sitting for so long, and when Fiance opened the trunk to get the spare… ta-da! BIIIIG black snake, all coiled up in the trunk. I, of course, totally start freaking out, and am told to “walk away so I can’t see it” (doesn’t mean I don’t know it’s still there!). Now, while the other 2 guys we were with were trying to figure out what to do about said snake, my Fiance suddenly reaches into the trunk, grabs the snake right behind its head and FLINGS it into the woods. No warning. No nothing.

Needless to say, I practically fainted.

Oh, it sounds like a harmless little garden thingy. I’d probably have freaked, too, but it’s not like a big ole rattlesnack came up to you =]

I’d have freaked at first, too. Cockroaches really creep me out.

I might have been scared too, but I’d remind myself that those snakes are keeping mice and rats and such away so I’d feel a bit better. I HATE mice and also would be hopping around on furniture for  few hours… Not that itmatters since mice can climb! Snakes can’t for the most part, so have it better lol

@ejs  I had to kill a big cockroach this morning cause hubby was already gone to work. We aren’t dirty people, just a victim of NYC and I wish I knew how to get rid of them!

i have no problem with a cute furry mouse in a pet shop or as a pet, but thinking of them running all over my house, running over/eating food i might eat, or scurrying across me as I sleep (think they are too scared of people for that? think again. happened to my sister when we were sleeping over at someone else’s house on his couch) and it freaks me right the flip out

Heh I was taking care of the “family chickens” at my parents house (they live in a lovely, perfect, heavily wooded rural area) and I spotted a 5 foot black snake slithering towards the chicken house. Stepped on the tail, then back of the head (was wearing boots), and put it in a lidded bucket, took it inside- so when Mom looked at me and said “Oh did you get some more beans out of the garden?” I was like yeah here ya go! She about killed me, lol

Nope. But I’m like that with spiders. Actually, I won’t even refer to them as that… I call them scaries. When I lived in Arizona, I saw a baby tarantula in the house. i sat on the kitchen table and sobbed for six hours, then wore my tennis shoes to bed. I demanded that we buy a gun stat – next one I saw was getting blown to high heaven.

Hehe I saw this post and I thought “ooo! I wonder if she owns a snake, too!”. 

 

Sorry you had such a scare!

Yikes! We live on a small lake and I’ve been lucky so far that I haven’t seen a snake. But I’m sure they’re around. I probably would be freaking out just like you if I saw one!

not snakes but I totally know what you are talking about but with cockroaches!!! EWWWW. I had to sit through this awful video telling about all the nasty things that come with cockroaches and that if there is one, there is a million around and I can’t stand seeing one. I also scream and jump on something high.

My fiance gets mad because he always has half a heart attack when I scream and cry (cuz I really don’t ever yell)

And, of course, we have to live in Florida where the cockroaches and AS BIG as freaking spiders….*shudders* can’t even think about them….

I won’t even let my fiance use my shoe or anything else associate with me because I say he’ll get roaches cooties on it and I can’t use it till it’s been wash and decaminated.

But, snakes :D. Man, I was the kid bringing with home to show to mom..which she didn’t really like Wink
