Terrified Woman Offers $50 to Have a Massive Spider Removed From Her House | “I’m Now Paranoid and on Edge”
Australian spiders are almost like personal trainers, always ready to make our hearts race if you accidentally stumble upon their webs. These spiders can scare the living daylights out of people but also charm us with their incredible beauty. According to Daily Mail, a woman offered $50 for someone to come over and remove a spider from her home. The woman was horrified to discover a huge huntsman spider crawling on her property in Summer Hill in Sydney's Inner West area.
The woman took to Facebook and posted in a private group, "Is anyone good with spiders? Will happily pay someone $50 to get this spider out of my apartment in Coogee." "Hi everyone, just wondering if you know anyone who can/doesn't mind catching spiders in people's houses to relocate as opposed to killing them?" she wrote. "Is there a service that does this? Or any teens who'd like to get a bit of pocket money to do this?" she added. She later again edited the same post to give an update on the situation, "Found another huntsman in my kitchen just now, and of course, I freaked out. He had run away and I'm now paranoid and on edge as to where he'll pop up again so just thought I'd ask around."
Many users were as spooked as the woman and one user commented, "I wouldn’t be staying around there long enough to even take a photo of that beast!!" Another commented: "Bro, that spider is trying to remove humans from the face of the planet." A third said: "I’d be moving." Another user advised, "I wouldn’t remove it for anyone. Had one in my bedroom a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, I was on my own. I sat in my bed watching it and thinking about what to do at midnight. Well, I raced and got the vacuum cleaner and sucked it in and put the vacuum in the garden overnight after I emptied half a can of spray on it."
A similar incident was reported by Mirror, where a woman was slammed by the police for calling 999 and demanding that they remove a massive spider from her house. West Yorkshire Police also posted an audio clip where one can hear the woman asking for someone to remove the spider from her house. She said, "Hiya, you’re probably gonna go mad at me right but I’ve literally tried ringing everyone and you’re my last hope."I need someone to come and get this spider out of my house."It’s absolutely massive and I’m not even joking!" The operator informed her that "Unfortunately the police wouldn’t be able to come and get a spider out of your house." Many police departments have urged people to not call unless it's a life-or-death scenario after receiving many bizarre requests on call.
