Isn't it funny?

How we have irrational fears,
Like I will catch a spider and let it go or kill it, but I will run as fast as I can away from waterbugs or june bugs. Clearly spiders can be more dangerous some of them are very poisonous, but still the big ol waterbugs are what cause me to run and hide. Do you have an irrational fear like that?

  • yes, I'm not scared to kill a spider but I'm so scared of roaches, I don't know why but they freak and gross me out and I can't deal with them. And I'm afraid of heights

  • I'm afraid of ghosts, even though i've never seen anything. But I'm not afraid of snakes, and I know they can kill me... probably because i know when they are there, but if a ghost would be standing near me, i wouldn't know unless i saw it.

  • They have cockroaches at the zoo? Ewwww....

    Answer by njmommy2boys at 11:49 AM on Mar. 7, 2009

  • Yes and they are huge roaches and they hiss, so gross.

    Answer by ednakrabapple at 12:07 PM on Mar. 7, 2009

  • I'm scared of roaches too. I either get real angry to see one in my apartment and right before the object of choice smashes it, they receive a "die mother----er die"..
    I am also this way about rodents. Mice and rats scare me, but I have 3 guinea pigs. Go figure.
