SPIDER nest!

dear god woman did you not check them before buying them? DH is Not Allowed to buy bananas in bags for this very reason.

Morgan12 · 12/06/2019 13:57

My blood just ran cold looking at this. That is my biggest fear!

UnderPompeii · 12/06/2019 13:59

Just nuke it from orbit. Best to be safe.

MsMightyTitanAndHerTroubadours · 12/06/2019 14:03

put it in a tupperware filled with water, lid on, tape lid shut, tie in a bag for good measure and freeze

this is no more than you deserve for eating bananas...disgusting things

Burn the house down Grin

UnderPompeii · 12/06/2019 14:05

Oooh death by freezing, that's a good idea
(I quite like bananas)

OR do what that couple did in the paper, they phoned Waitrose to complain and they sent someone around with a tupperware

man alive that made me laugh

Best of it was, they also called the police, the RSPCA and a Spiderspecialist who ransacked the entire house in an effort to capture it before finding the offending spider still in the fruit bowl.

...was that a Brazilian Walking Spider or have I made that up?? It was a particularly fierce type anyways!

UnderPompeii · 12/06/2019 14:06

Or, nuke from orbit can be plan B

No way, that's so funny! This particular banana comes from Sainsburys. Maybe I should contact the Fail with my sad face and banana at the ready.

dd used to do online shopping for tesco and she would never go into the banana drawers

she'd always sweet talk one of the others.

MooseBeTimeForSnow · 12/06/2019 14:21

I have a friend who works on ships that transport bananas. Imagine the stories.

It’s not like you can run away.

Put it outside in a corner and leave it alone, as far from the house as possible though.

SpacePlusTime · 12/06/2019 15:25

Also one of my worst fears. DH thinks I am ridiculous when I check all bananas. I shall show him this photo!!

REDCARBLUE · 12/06/2019 15:50

Never ever NOT check your bananas!!!

Burn it!

LaMarschallin · 12/06/2019 15:53

Bother! I can't enlarge it to see it properly.
It's not a very tiny encouraging message from the Duchess of Sussex by the sound of the posts.
Shame that.

gamerchick · 12/06/2019 15:54

Put it in a pot, take it back to the shop and tell Sainsbury's they need to check their bananas.

Or you can let it hatch and watch 500 baby spiders scuttle off into your house Grin

Peachsummer · 12/06/2019 15:55

Spider nest. Get it out of your house before it hatches!

icecreamsundae32 · 12/06/2019 15:58

Oh Jesus! I buy the pre packed kids size bananas so don't check them Confused I don't eat bananas myself but now not sure I want them in the house lol

UnderPompeii · 12/06/2019 16:01

It is double zipped bagged and in the wheelie bin. I hope the bin gets emptied before they hatch!
