I know it’s outside but it could come in couldn’t it?

*move not love!

I’m bleakly hoping you aren’t in the UK 🕷

KoalasAteMyHomework Tue 14-Nov-17 20:02:21

Yep you gotta move...

NoParticularPattern Tue 14-Nov-17 20:03:23

Tell me that step is not a standard human foot sized step?! That spider is enormous if so!!

Also YANBU. Although possibly a little conservative. I’d burn the house down if I were you.

NoParticularPattern Tue 14-Nov-17 20:04:09

Having looked at the photo agin it might be a brick? Either way it’s massive. Burn it

Spiders feel the cold too.

MissMisery Tue 14-Nov-17 20:04:55

Aaaaaah move not love Phew!! That was weird.

No, not unreasonable at all. Although... it looks a bit.... erm... halloweeney/rubbery <squints> Have you checked?

whydoesitalwaysrain Tue 14-Nov-17 20:05:24

@NoParticularPattern Yes its a brick not a step but still...

I’m keeping an eye on it. It hasn’t moved yet...probably waiting to pounce of my face I expect

I think you would hear it’s foot steps if it came inside! Is there not a giant welly boot or something you can use to squash it?

I’m all for letting creatures just carry on in their own way (which doesn’t disturb me) but having been bitten by a false widow twice which was hiding in my dressing gown last year i’m now quite happy to kill any spider that comes near me.

@MissMisery It’s definitely real. DS wants it as a pet- great

whydoesitalwaysrain Tue 14-Nov-17 20:07:45

@CallMeDollFace Yes I’m in the UK

I don't get this fear of spiders. Just six legs more than us.

@cravingcake I’m sending DP out there armed with a work boot as soon as he’s in.

I’m not usually scared of spiders but this one looks pretty big

doozeldog Tue 14-Nov-17 20:10:18

Get your children and get out of the house now!

habenero20 Tue 14-Nov-17 20:12:12

unless you are in Australia, you vs the spider is an unfair fight.

HashtagTired Tue 14-Nov-17 20:16:03

Torch the house and move counties.

nocoolnamesleft Tue 14-Nov-17 20:19:58

Take off and nuke it from orbit.

KitKat1985 Tue 14-Nov-17 20:20:36

I'm going to sound like a grump here, but I never understand why otherwise sane adults get in such a tizz about a spider. I could understand if we were in Australia and it was poisonous or something, but in the UK spiders generally aren't anything to worry about.

blacksax Tue 14-Nov-17 20:21:37

You know what sort of spider that is, don't you?
It's a house spider. Yes, it wants to come in. It wants to evict you and move into your house. You need to leave now.

@KitKat all spiders can pose a risk (I would know, I'm Australian). Non-venemous spiders can still bite resulting in anaphylaxis or infections. Venemous spiders-self explanatory. Poisonous spiders-not an issue unless you intend to eat them.
