Today, I had to drive 40-odd miles to my grown-ass son's house to kill a large spider on the wall. It had him trapped in his bedroom because his wife had already gone to work. How did I ever raise such a wuss? FML

How did you raise such a wuss? By being the kind of parent to drive 40 miles to kill a spider for him.

Who made you drive in the first place? Your son may be a wimp, but you're a pushover for going to his house just to kill a spider.

Exactly my thoughts. If he wants or, he'll have to get past the spider or sit there all day until his wife comes home. That'd give him time to think about what a wimp he is.

"Worry not, son, the monster slayer is here!"

Are you sure he doesn't have arachnophobia? Or allergic to spider bites?

To be fair spiders are children of Satan.

you have to burn them with fire

Safest way is to grab your pets, your laptop, put them in the car, and burn the house down. You can rebuild. Later.

he might have a very severe phobia of spiders which needs treating by a professional psychiatrist. this sounnds like the case of he is scared enough he genuinely can't leave the room and had to ask you to drive over that far too. it sounds like it is really interfering.eith both your lives. if it is a phobia then it is not a case of 'you raised him' or anything and doesn't mean he is a wuss..they can be caused by lots of things I think and are very real and debilitating.

This will be me. ... If I ever move out.

Just remember one thing, you're never more than 6 feet from a spider when you're in a house.

Nope. I spray with Home Defense and some other brand, liberally, every summer. Do some get across through other means? Sure. But not many. Not enough for that to be true.

Did the Mighty Mouse theme song start playing when you burst through the door 😏 but in all fairness of they are that frightened of spiders that is a phobia not a fear 🤔
