Why are most people so afraid of spiders?

Like srsly. even the cute little fuzzy ones that are smaller than their nail on their pinky finger. I remember being in class and all the girls start screaming and jumping up in their seats (along with several guys). Then there's like a few guys that are like oh we're just gonna be so macho here and squish something the size of a pencil eraser. So they go over to the spider, and I ran over and grabbed the poor little thing and put it outside. <.< like really. I understand the fear of the big ones, or poisonous ones.. but not the teeny once. I absolutely love spiders. For several years I had a pet tarantula. I got several of my friends unafraid by always catching spiders and handing them to them. But a lot of people are just terrified. It's actually pretty amusing c:

They're* xD and the majority of household spiders don't bite. Then the majority of the ones that DO bite, aren't venomous, or aren't venomous enough to harm you. There are plenty that CAN harm you, but most of the times you see a spider, it's unlikely that they bite, or are venomous. and you really can't say that ANY of these aren't cute? http://www.google.com/search?q=cute+spider&hl=en&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=9nyEUKTUGZHo8gSejIHACg&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=709

I am scared of spiders, AND ONLY SPIDERS, NOTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD. But I have a reason. When I was little my NEIGHBOR died of a black-widow bite. It scared the crap out of me and every time I see a spider now I flip out because I am afraid that it could kill me. It could have been ME, not my neighbor!!!

The one thing I'm afraid of is clowns.. Well see, in this situation I completely understand. That's a VERY unfortunate, and tragic event. I'm sorry about your neighbor!
Report as
@itswolfy why are you afraid of clowns? Did your neighbor die from one?
Report as
No, because when I was little I was kidnapped by a woman in a clown costume.

Not to mention, who needs to hide their face to appeal to little kids? It's freaky.

I guess you've never gone hiking out in the woods & noticed it's getting dark. Having no flashlight you start making your way through the woods as it gets darker. Then when you least expect it you turn & get a 4' long black & yellow spider right over your face. Thats freaky, making you run towards home & by the time you get near the street lights both you & your friend are screaming & yelling at one another. You both are covered in these spiders & their webs pulling your clothes off & shaking them off of you. That will give you the heevie geevies!
