I had a driving "emergency" yesterday.

You can see it in the photo I took once I had safely stopped and before I proceeded to escort him/her to the ground outside my car.

But let me tell you, that was some nervous driving for a couple of minutes there.

And no, I didn't just squish him.  Partly because I don't do that with spiders, and partly because ewwww, then I'd have to clean that up.

But gah!  SPIDER IN CAR!  IN CAR!!!!

Dear god, what is that monster!!!

That's probably the most disturbing thing I've seen all week.

Better than stinging insect in car when you are allergic to said stinging insect...

Still traumatic. Good for you for escorting it out of your car in one piece. I may not have been that kind.

Sorry Jason! Should have put a warning on the photo ;) No, but you can imagine how happy I was that it wasn't bigger!!!!

Oh Elliott, I can't even imagine if there had been a flying, stinging, murder kind in there! And I can't say what I might have done had he climbed towards me... probably flicked him away and then lost track of him and never driven again?

Also, I should point out, I just discovered the photo is "zoomable" I suggest not doing that.

Oh sure. "Oh man, it's zoomable! Don't do it!" ... like that ever works.

Oh it's worse than I imagined.

I will see your "spider in car" and raise you a "wasp in your motorbike helmet when you're doing 60mph" - that was a tense few moments, that one! :)

Also, fun story. So, my best friend's dad died several years ago, and she inherited his house. He was a terrible packrat, so it took several weekend trips (seven hours one way) to clean out said house and get it ready for rental. One such trip the two of us made, I took the car to the storage unit with a load, and saw a large black spider staring out at me from the glove box. Couldn't do anything about it while I was driving, and when I stopped, of course, I couldn't find him.

Spiders don't really bother me, but they REALLY bother bestie.

That night while we were driving home, in Milwaukee, far from any place where we could pull over, the spider crawls ACROSS HER FACE. She was driving, of course.

Somehow we didn't die. She pulled over at the nearest shoulder and flung the spider as far as she could. And somewhere in Wisconsin there is a spider who is regaling other spiders of this tale and painting himself the victim.
