They're not real

Today, my girlfriend, KNOWING I have severe arachnophobia, changed the wallpapers on my phone and tablet to pictures of tarantulas, all because she's mad at me. And she won't change it back. FML

Okay, your girlfriend's sense of humor is warped...but can't you change the wallpaper back yourself? You should probably consider locking your devices with a password in the future.

To those telling OP to change it back or look up how, he said he has SEVERE arachnophobia - he may be unable to look at the pictures at all to make the changes.

OP possibly find a third party to do it for you. A friend or family member or something. And sorry to say this, but you may want to reassess your relationship with her as she seems to have no respect for a serious issue you have. There are healthier ways to settle a disagreement, but this method seems like overly antagonistic, toxic behavior.

My two cents from the part of the story I know. Good luck.

It seems pretty sad that OP does not know how to set or change the wallpaper on their own phone or tablet. Not everyone is a technical expert but that’s pretty basic.

OP just Google how to change the wallpaper on your model phone and tablet.

You're such a wuss! You need to change your silly, irrational fear of eensy weensy spiders to a real adult fear, like expense reports.

Unless it's from a black widow or brown recluse, a spider bite is nothing compared to getting chewed out by Peggy from Accounting. Fuck! That's terrifying!

How many times have you been bitten? I live in Australia and I get bitten often, nothing toxic as yet but scary enough all the same.

Well, Peggy told everyone at her beauty salon and her family about the dumb fuck who submitted parking costs under Lodging and not Transportation, and the whole town thought I was an idiot and I had to move out of state! Really scary!

This is the first and probably also the last time I fully and wholeheartedly agree with you. Arachnophobia is already a pathetic excuse to be a pussy, but arachnofotophobia (yes I made that up) is even worse.
OP: grow a pair and go on with your live. Your girlfriend is cool. Not sure if she is not too cool for you, but the problem is definitely not on her side.

Screw your girlfriend and the people in the comments making this seem like you're an overreactive wuss. Your girlfriend, who is supposed to love and support you, used your fear against you. That's classic abuse. You are not overreacting.
