Made a bit of a fool of myself

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Was at the pet store this morning, just reading cat food labels, minding my own business, when out of the corner of my eye... I see a spider!!!!! and it wasn't just a little guy either it was a big 'un (at least to me) of course the strangled cry of fear that I made was heard by 2 teenage stock boys in the next aisle and they came over now the spider is scurrying at an extremely rapid rate RIGHT TOWARDS ME!!!! cue the "I'm a big baby dance" the boys chased him under one of the shelves and I high-tailed it out of there let's just say it got my heart pumping Nothing like freaking out in the middle of a pet store to start your day

I really don't mean to laugh, but the visual that your description placed in my head is priceless.

Did you at least go back for your cat food?

I've done that myself - only it's usually involving a bee rather than a spider, LOL!!! Makes you feel like quite the girl, huh??? Hee-hee!!!

I would have done the same thing! I'm terrified of spiders, especially ones that MOVE. If one's just kinda sitting there, it's not so bad, but otherwise.....*shudder*
