When you see a spider do you.......gently let it outside OR smash it gone for good?

I just found a spider in my dryer and I couldn't do much, but let it go.......it got me thinking about what others might do.

If its in the house, it dies. If its outside, it lives.

Depends on if they attack (read: surprise me)... If they are inside and surprise attack then they die. If they are outside and surprise attack then they get flicked/smacked off. Outside and give me adequate notice and it'll most likely live to see another day.

We let them outside unless it is a dangerous species that cannot be caught without harming myself or putting my kids in danger.

this. some I leave. there is a very nice daddy long legs in my foyer who catches alot of mosquitoes. he and I have an agreement. the cat gets most of the other spiders in the house.

 I despise spiders, however I feel bad when I kill them. Yeah I know it doesn't make much sense lol.. but I kill them anyways because it is too much of a challenge trying to trap it and bring it outside when I'm absolutely terrified.
