My husband is real kind, and would literally never hurt a fly! I on the other hand hate bugs and spiders, and dont hesitate one minute to kill them! We sometimes argue about this! Whats it like at your place? Are your dh kinder to animals than you? ;-)

No. My husband was taught by his family to shoot squirrels and drown chipmunks. That won't fly around here. I've been pleasantly surprised to see how kind and loving he can be to my cats. His family only ever had dogs.

He tells me I'm mean and how would I like it if a spider squashed me. My response? If there's a spider in my house big enough to squash me he can have the damn house!

If I'm barefoot I grab the first heavy object I can find, book, magazine, sledgehammer. If I have shoes on I just stomp on them. Our fly swatters are used only for the grandkids to make bubbles.

Spiders or grandkids? Lol. No, I'm not afraid of spiders. Some of them can really hurt you if they bite. Like the brown recluse. I haven't had a problem with them but my son is allergic to spiders. Not anything life threatening but he got bit a few times as a kid band he'd swell up pretty good. I just don't like bugs. I get creeper out and do a voodoo dance if one gets on me.
