Inspired by another thread, what are things that give you the willies?

My biggest one is houseboats.

desperately hoping other people get the willies too

DH gives me the willies quite often. Well, one willy.

Bald men

Swimming in the deep, open sea and swimming over an anchor attached to a long chain

Eugh eugh it makes me feel so weird

Not to be a party popper but you probably need a trigger warning on the thread title

Mine is pomegranates

Farm machinery, silos and slurry pits. Lots of health and safety issues and gruesome ways to die.

How big VY Canis is.

Nuclear cooling towers.

Very small back gardens.

Another vote for slurry pits. Have friends raised on dairy farms... How their parents ever slept I'll never know. The stories... I've had nightmares about them.

When a certain colour food touches another certain colour food.
Or a sauce touches a sauce.

What in the willy is a slurry pit?!

Also, why thread disclaimer?

Crumbs. Recent ones from a just cut or eaten loaf are OK..ish. Old crumbs make me gag and shudder a bit.

Octopus + squid. Alive or dead.

Open water and the three little dots that appear when someone is replying to you ugh it’s horrible. Also unplanned calls from family after before 9 in the morning and 9 at night never amounts to anything good. Also phone calls from certain family members for the same reason.

When your teeth go 'back to front' by mistake - ie top teeth touch back of bottom teeth. Aaaaaaaaagh

EdithBouvier Thu 15-Nov-18 21:35:40

Pissing myself at the thread title suggestion - why would "the willies" need a trigger warning?

Anyway mine is big thing a like standing next to a massive jet plane or a cruise liner. Just makes me feel so tiny and insignificant and scared I'll get sucked up into engines blush

Wet tissue paper, very deep water and submarines 😂

This made me shudder too!

Isshebeingserious it’s where they put the cow shit ... you can die just from breathing in the fumes and many a farmer has been killed by falling in. You wouldn’t stand a chance.

Isshebeingserious Thu 15-Nov-18 21:38:10

Deep water is popular

Isshebeingserious Thu 15-Nov-18 21:39:02


Jesus Christ! Willy alert

Different colour wood in the same room.
False eyes.

Men smoking in the street outside a pub. I am terrified of violence and always expect a huge fight to break out.

A Fry-Up, when the fried egg leaks into the baked beans - it really disturbs me.

Teeth. Teeth are creepy.
