Owl be there for you

Today, I went on a date to an owl sanctuary. Today is also the day I discovered my all-encompassing fear of owls, as I cried and pissed myself in front of my date and 15 other visitors. FML

How did you not know that you would scared of owls? I mean fair enough it's not common but I think if you are so scared you pissed yourself I imagine you'd get the chills just seeing a picture of the bird. Still FYL

I didn't realise I was terrified of butterflies until I went to a Butterfly House and they started flying at me. I'm sure everyone is vaguely terrified of someone breaking into your house, but until you you experience it first hand you don't appreciate the real fear of the situation.

A fear of owls seems so random... the fact you didn't see a panic attack coming now makes me paranoid I'll freak the fuck out seeing some random animal I have never seen in person before.. I would just think like the last commenter and figure if the image of it didn't bother me then I'd be A-OK. Which is what I presume OP assumed without even really considering anything else. I can't even imagine the embarrassment either. Life fucked you hard, OP. Totally giving locations to my future first dates an actual thought process now instead of an "eh, whatever, as long as we actually hear ourselves talk".

Why didn't you say something when you arrived or even when you saw the owls? You put yourself through such a traumatic experience just for a stupid date. It doesn't seem logical to me.

This probably happened the minute they stepped through the door - or they tried to carry on as best as they could (brave to try and overcome it) and ultimately couldn't handle any more. Just my thoughts.
