Teen Claims Spiders Alerted Her to Fire
A woman who hates spiders is crediting them with helping save her from a house fire. Danielle Vigue, 18, says she awoke early Tuesday to find spiders in her room, and started killing them. When more showed up, she says she went across the hall and got into bed with her 15-year-old sister, Lauren.
"At first there were five, they were all around the light fixture," Danielle Vigue told The Saginaw News. "I hate spiders, they freak me out."

Good thing she's a light sleeper. Otherwise she would have needed barking spiders.Politics is like driving. To go forward select "D", to go backward select "R."

Told my wife I'm at work. Told my boss I'm sick. I'm really at the fire station.

I don't care if you train those things to personally put out the fire themselves, I'll still keep my smoke detectors and phone to call 911!
Household spiders, you know, the wee ones that usually build their webs in corners, don't bother me. But the ones big enough to be furry looking, or those gawd awful daddy long leg things I despise I'm not afraid of rats, mice, snakes (well, at least black snakes). But throw a spider on me and I will personally show you how to kill a person with three fingers My grandpa was a sniper in WW2, and he taught me how. He went in front of the front lines, and was trained in hand to hand combat. Basically, his group was the one where if they don't come back, the others know not to go that way.
