    Maybe it's not that funny, but this little nugget in our local throwaway paper - police beat- cracked me up.


    :floorlaugh::waitasec: who calls the police over a spider, no matter how big it is? I may call a friend, or leave the house, but....calling the police?

    The police is probably over kill. If it was really that big, maybe the Humane Society would have been a better call lol

    I also am scared to death of spiders. Being a single parent when my kids were younger it took all I could do to kill one and pretend it was nothing. Didn't want to pass my phobia on to them. Well I succeeded in that but once they got a little older they use to end up killing them for me. I didn't fool them one bit they knew i was afraid of them. lol But at least they weren't.

    It's not the worse thing about being a single parent, but I agree it ranks up there, having to kill all the bugs. It just cracked me up that the police were called. I may have had to go camp out at a friend's house until someone came to kill it for me, or take a picture and say PLEASE come help me. I may have even gone to a hotel and hoped it mosied out by the time I got home.


    and...they took into custody :floorlaugh:

    I don't mind spiders so much as long as I have a broom between the two of us. If it crawls away and I can't find it - THEN I freak out...

    gahhhh!!!

    Seriously, when my son was 11 he offered to babysit his friend's jumping wolf spider. He was not home when it meandered down the hall. I could HEAR it walking on our hard wood floor. I was on the phone with my mother in law tripping out - anytime I got close, he jumped toward me. I had no idea it was a pet into my son got home to find out that I had dropped one of the Harry Potter books on it and left the mess just on the chance it really dead. I screeched like an 8 year old .
