You’ve never seen anyone more afraid of a spider than this lady
Man, what would she do if a mouse ever snuck in?
You’d think, given mankind’s spot on the food chain, that we’d have gotten over our fears of tiny creatures. Spiders, for example, help with insect control and turning pubescent young men into colorful superheroes, but most of the time, thanks to being scary-looking and quick-moving, their presence is wholly unwelcome.
Nowhere is this more obvious than in the home of YouTube user Meggyeatw0rld.
Her mother is terrified of a spider (or is it a cricket?) that has made its way into her house. As she corners herself in the kitchen, she screams, weeps a little bit, threatens a heart attack, and even tells her daughter, who is filming, that she will kill her if she does not get rid of the spider.
We’re guessing the next family movie night won’t include A Bug’s Life.
Update 2:30pm CT: A YouTube user named Megan contacted us to share her original version of the video. The story has been updated to reflect her ownership.
