Adapt, improvise, overcome

Today, I saw a spider in my kitchen. Freaked, but trying to be humane, I held out a piece of paper so it would climb on, and I would then put it outside. However, it jumped out of nowhere and landed on my face. My reaction was to whack at where the spider was - my face. I stumbled around, disoriented; the spider got away. FML

The trick to prevent this in the future is as follows:
Get a cup (preferably clear) and put it over the spider/bug. Get a stiff piece of paper and slowly slide it under the cup until the spider/bug crawls onto the paper. Once the bug is on the center if the paper, pick up the paper and cup up (be careful not to leave any cracks between the cup and the piece of paper) and take it outside. The spider/bug will crawl off on its own without issue once you pick a spot outside and lift the cup.
Using this method will prevent the spider/bug from jumping in the future :)

That's one hell of a boxing match! You are simultaneously the winner and loser by knockout.

Too bad you didn't have video to share -- it would've been very popular on the web! Eight thumbs up.
