Could be a reference to Channing Tatums character in the film "she's the man" who has a massive fear of spiders. Channing Tatum was the one who said "My names Jeff" in 22 Jump Street.

All about the temperament. I had a black Brazilian that was as sweet as a kitten, but of course it just depends on the particular tarantula. If you don't hold it, it'll flick hairs at you or even hiss.*

*Which is why I'd never get a Goliath bird-eater or blue electric, the hissing scares the fuck outta me.

My mom has a Chilean rose tarantula named itsy, and she is totally non aggressive. However, it is still mean to bring a spider into the house of someone afraid of spiders.

I guess my comment was more directed at the exact phrase "good pet" because you could say that it's mean to bring dogs into a house with a dog hater, but they're still good pets. I dunno, I wasn't really trying to argue with #5. Just putting out the perspective of an actual arachnophile. :)

That kindof reminded me of the FML of the little kid who put the spider in the microwave and tried to make it bite him so he'd get superpowers. Anyone? No? Just me?

Not tarantulas, usually the larger the spider the less deadly. There's never been a case of death from a tarantula bite that I know of. And if you are careful and gentle it most likely won't hurt you. There's a lot of people with them as pets.

The biggest problem with spider bites is an infection from not taking care of the wound or if you're allergic to the venom. OP, if you're afraid then don't keep it, your going to give that animal a bad life. Tell her to take it back to the pet store or to rehome it (or if it's native, to release it again)
