Today, I subbed for a first grade class. They were releasing butterflies. Butterflies scare me shitless. A bunch of 7 year-olds watched as I screamed hysterically when one landed on me. FML

This reminds me of that episode of Pokémon where Caterpie was all up in Misty's everything and she was completely fucking terrified of it.

It's a phobia! An irrational fear that people cannot control. I side with the OP, I'm terrified of butterflies! They just flutter everywhere.

I don't think 31 was talking about mz_booty. I think he was referring to OP.

To all you assholes, you can't help being scared of something. I'm not afraid to say I'm afraid of cows. I was nearly trampled by them as a kid. Me, nor the poster of the FML, can help this fear. It's because of a psychological response associated to a bad incident with the object(s) that you fear.

176 - (if this double posts, so be it) I'll believe you're a girl, but not a girl with bleach-blonde hair and a nice ass. Scratch that, there are no girls on the internet.

Oh? They're unpredictable, that's why they scare you. Does that mean you follow the exact same pattern every day to avoid scaring yourself? Life itself is unpredictable, and I would think you don't fear that, am I right?

183 - When we were young, my gp's had a farm. My sister developed a phobia to turkeys because one chased her around for a while. She overcame this phobia a couple weeks later when we ate it for dinner. Maybe you should have a few whoppers?

I can see it now - "omg omg omg, get it off, get it off" as she runs around like a crazy woman. On the bright side, that school won't be inviting you back to sub for those butterfly raising monsters!

ps. shame on me for assuming OP was a girl since no gender was shown. My bad. Sorry ladies, no harm intended. ;)

The butterflies are out to get you!

Correction, they got her.

Why yes they did! I can imagine the butterfly laughing to itself for scaring her!

how are you scared of butterflies? they're beautiful!

All part of their evil plot to lure you into a false sense of security. Don't fall for their facade of beauty!!

9, have you NOT seen spongebob?

Hahaha 53 xD For real, that close-up was creepy... .____.

No one suspects the butterfly...

fyl, for being a whiny little bitch

at least have a rational fear OP. I'm scared of owls ad spiders, at least that's somewhat normal.

many people have irrational fears, such as fear of clowns. so is a fear of butterflies really that crazy?

Your logic fails. Everyone knows clowns are really serial killers, duh!

does being scared of owls count as irrational?

It does seem a little irrational, Ive never heard of an owl attack someone, especially since they are nocturnal, an I'm sure they are like most animals and don't attack non-prey unless threatened first.

I'm guessing theres also a fear of tape?

25, my friend keeps saying it's like "the 4th kind", and that is the cause of my owl fear -___-

I have a fear of Pubs. not really

Frelling 0

Butterflies have been used in movies as harbingers of death/evil. If you were scared by the 4th kind, shouldn't you be afraid of alien abduction?

I have a fear Axe murderers, but I don't think thats irrational

25- when my oldest was just crawling, I was sitting under an awning in my back yard letting her crawl on the grass, a huge white owl came off of a light post, comeing about two feet from snatching her up. tallens out and all. I damn near shit myself. so now you heard of an owl attacking someone.

@ #25 - In my area they have warned that early morning joggers should not wear their hair in ponytails because the owls here will sometimes grab the hair thinking it's a squirrel's tail or something.

It was just looking for food and your baby looked pretty tasty lol.
