Um, you can call them bugs, but you don't have to intentionally mislabel them as insects just to not "look like a complete nerd." Besides it's not only nerds that know spiders aren't insects.

The Giver ftw. And YDI, how did you not know spiders were arachnids? But also FYL for being called a dumbass by a six-year-old.

That's awesome! But I'm from London and I have never heard a child say "dumbass". It's too much of an Americanism.

Agreed. Leads me to doubt the authenticity of the story. In the very least the author has embellished it a little.
