    We've all had them

    but last night was a little extra. After working hard to finish up a 2 week long boiler room upgrade I was feeling pretty good. I stopped by the scrap yard on the way home to empty my truck. After I got home I heard hissing from my rear tires. I had picked up multiple shards of sharp metal in 3 of my tires and 2 were leaking. Wanting to get a jack under the truck before it got too low I sprung into action. I grabbed my jack and a nearby half cinder block to elevate it. While lying under the truck positioning the jack I felt something moving on my arm. I turned my head slightly to see a snake slithering over my shoulder just inches from my eyes. I may never recover. snakes give me the willys. I screamed like a little girl and was out from under the truck faster than Randy Moss chasing a paycheck. Brrrr! Gives me the chills thinking about it. Ack! WW

    we have all had them, great story! How long did it take you to get over it and get back-at changing the tires?
    I suffer from arachnophobia, go through brooms weekly!
    Strange affliction to have, given my profession!

    I'm no \"Crocodile Hunter\"either...

    Snakes give me the creeps,too! Wasn't there someone on this site that had an "up close & personal" with a big boa or python in a crawl space in Florida? YIKES! Reminds me of Shel Silverstein's old fake folk song "I am being eaten by a boa constirctor" Oh,no! He's nibbling my toe!

    you will recover

    Give me a good old snake any day over a spider. When my daughter Dee was working with Jerry she used to bring home spiders found in crawl spaces just to give Mom a real hyper reaction.

    I'm no expert on snakes

    but I'm pretty sure it was an anaconda, about 15 inches long, going for my throat to choke me. :O WW

    Why I Moved West of the Cascades...

    Wayne, I had an experience similar in NY. While installing a new baseboard system in an old home built by the Dutch (C.1690)near Kingston, NY...I had to enter a 2 ft crawlspace to hang pipe. After bellying in 5 or 6 ft, I came face-to-face with a copperhead nest. There was never a faster retreat, I can assure you. I was doing the job with John Abularragh (Advanced Radiant Design). I think I made him finish the crawl piping. Humans aren't the only creatures crawling in crawlspaces.

    There are no snakes west of the Cascades. I feel safe now...soggy, but safe.

    I'm With You, Ruthe!

    I'd rather have 20 snakes crawling all over me than one spider walk across my hand (as long as the snake's not poisonous.) I don't mind snakes and rodents, but anything with more than 4 legs sure can freak me out.
  • I check every time

    During the hot summer evening, I grabbed a glass of water sitting on the paito table, for some reason I slowed down and felt something tingling my upper lip, its was some hairy unknown spider in the glass.....
    Now I check the glass everytime...

    Here's my spider story...I was on the platform leading the song service at church when a spider crawled across my chest! My son in the second row saw it so you know it wasn't small! It disappeared over my left shoulder...within couple of verses I could feel it and all his friends all over my body...Pastor finally came up behind my and asked, in my ear, what was wrong! While everybody kept singing I told him, and he got the giggles over the whole thing. By then the whole church is wondering what on earth, and my son and his buddy are having a religious experience in the second row! The whole service grinds to a halt, I had to explain what was up...and finally found the little bugger on my sleeve...

    Where do spiders go when killed in church?
