There are two type of people in the world. One who aren’t fazed by bugs and the others who are freaked by bugs.
For most types of bugs, I fall in the first category. But bring on flying cockroaches and I’ll scream like a banshee and find the biggest weapon to kill it. I know it is not very rational but it’s how I am.
Another creature that frightens me is a snake. I have no idea which snakes are harmless and which are poisonous so I give them the benefit of doubt and get away from them as quickly as possible. Sometimes that is not possible as the offender is in my territory, like the bathroom. In one of the houses we lived in, the baby snakes would come out of the water drain. To be fair, it was an old house and the sewerage system was very old. I used to freak out and would shout for reinforcement. It usually ended in us killing the poor baby snake.
Some people would label it as heartless. But I had three small kids in the home and wasn’t taking any chances.
What about you?
Do bugs bug you or are you chillax around them?
