I have said on Cat Country multiple times that I am very afraid of spiders. Big or small, I just can't deal with them. We had some rather manly spiders trying to come into our home that all but ended up in a war zone.

From what I have found, everyone is afraid of something.

My wife is afraid of spiders like me. My mom was afraid of snakes. My friend is deathly afraid of heights. We all have something. The bigger question is, how far do we let our fear take us?

For me, I usually pee my pants and forget my name for about 20 minutes. Ok, maybe it's not that bad but it is pretty bad. At least I don't get the cops called on me when I see a spider though.

Calls of a woman and man yelling and screaming hysterically had police rushing to a Australian apartment block only to discover that the screaming had come from a man who was attempting to kill a particularly massive spider. In his defense, spiders get pretty huge in Australia.

Here is the transcript of the complete interaction, and it’s pretty hilarious.

Police: “Where’s your wife?”
Male: “Umm I don’t have one.”
Police: “Where your girlfriend?”
Male: “Umm I don’t have one.”
Police: “We had a report of a domestic and a women screaming, where is she?”
Male: “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I live alone.”
Police: “Come on mate people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit.”

At this point the male became very sheepish.

Police: “Come on mate, what have you done to her.”
Male: “It was a spider.”
Police “Sorry??”
Male: “It was a spider, a really big one!!”
Police: “What about the women screaming?”
Male: “Yeah sorry that was me, I really really hate spiders.”
