I saw this scorpion on my wall the other day

I was super close to it, putting my hand next to it for size comparison. I also recorded him because he was in the open & easy to see.

Then when I was outside smoking, I saw a cockroach by my feet & I jumped 馃槀
My brothers gf was like "Kill it! Kill it" & I was like "I'm trying!" But I didn't kill it. When it started running again I jumped out the way 馃ぃ

She was like "this is so funny 馃ぃ I never thought I'd see you scared of anything. You weren't bothered by that scorpion earlier"

Idgaf though I'm terrified of roaches 馃槵 spiders scorpions, them buggies don't bother me. We cool. But roaches 馃ぎ

I'll step on them but even that takes courage for me 馃槄 because in my head I'm thinking "what if he dodges it, then he counterattacks & runs up my leg? I have no defense for that"
Shits scary bruh.

But here's the lil scorpion homie if anyone wants to see him do his thing 馃 he out here pimpin' these hoes you know how it goes

It's funny how people are more scared of spiders than scorpions, even though scorpions are basically armored battle spiders.

Cockroaches, though? They're disease-ridden spawn of Satan.
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic well yeah, I don't wanna touch either of them really 馃し but neither of them scare me. Scorpions are definitely the more dangerous ones though 馃槄 at least usually.

Roaches can go to hell 馃槫

Roaches are about the only non human creature I hate. All else is fine.
@Miram including giant hissing cockroaches?
Miram31-35, F
@deadgerbil all types. I don't like them.
@Miram I want them all to die. When I see one, its tough because I don't want them to live & I gotta kill them.. but I'm scared of them so it's an internal fight every time 馃槀
Jaydee731-35, M
I have the same fear of roaches. More of disgust and paranoia that it can evade and run on me! 馃槱

@ChiefWalksWith40oz Reminds me of one time i was out with some friends having some food and drinks, i spotted one roach scurrying toward our bench. It was outdoors at night, and there were other people around.
I literally jumped up from the bench seat and began stomping the ground, hoping the roach would turn around and run the other way.

My friends did not seem phased by the roach and were all looking at me like i am some mad man. Admittedly i did look like a mad man stomping all over like a russian dancer. They just looked at me and said "dude wtf is wrong with you" while laughing, and i screamed out " IT IS THE DEVIL" .. 馃槃

All the other people there thought i was a nutcase obviously. So embarrassing 馃槄
@Jaydee7 that sounds hilarious but I've done that many times... I think I have a slightly more embarrassing one 馃槄 once when I was like 8 or so, this girl dropped a roach down my shirt & I freaked out & punched her in the stomach.

Knocked the wind out of her & I felt bad instantly... after I shook the roach out in a panic of course. I apologized & we became friends after that. Later it turned out she had a crush on me 馃し kids lol.

But that remains the only time in my life I ever hit a female. I was soo scared of roaches though it was no joke
Jaydee731-35, M
@ChiefWalksWith40oz I totally understand. And eww she actually could hold one and drop it down your shirt. Ughh so gross
How tf we鈥檙e suppose to get married and buy a house together if we both afriad off roaches ? 馃え
@Stark my heart 馃槏馃槍 but don't worry.. I kill them but I really do have to use some bravery for it 馃槄
@ChiefWalksWith40oz just use bug spray and hope it doesn鈥檛 fly towards you. I鈥檒l be in the house with the kids
@Stark when I see one fly I be hiding too 馃憖 tryna sneak up on them & shit 馃槀
But spray ain't enough I gotta stomp that foo & make sure his body is disposed of lol.. y'all will be safe 馃檹
DearAmbellina211341-45, F
I've been in AZ for 5 months and haven't seen a scorpion yet. NOT THAT I WANT TO!!! I just expected to have seen one by now. Lol
@DearAmbellina2113 they're not out in our colder seasons. But now that it's summer you're waaaay more likely to see them so be careful & keep your eye out 馃憗锔
DearAmbellina211341-45, F
@ChiefWalksWith40oz 馃槹馃槶
@DearAmbellina2113 yeah this was the first one I've seen this season. There will definitely be more 馃
If you're up against scorpion, it's not mortal kombat, but when you're up against a cockroach it is? 馃樁

I don't wanna meet either 馃槄
@Classified yeah I think it's kinda funny I think like that 馃槀
@ChiefWalksWith40oz I remember when I mustered the courage to pick up a bug with my finger and then when I managed to do it, I felt the two halves of it's shell moving and going over and under each other. 馃槚
I totally understand that. I posted a story about my new accountant who ran out of her office and left me sitting there alone because there was a big bug on the wall. I could hear her begging her coworkers (all women) to come in and kill it. None of them would, they were even considering stopping some man outside and asking him to take care of it.
So I got up and killed it, tossed it in the trash.
@ChiefWalksWith40oz Lol ! But do you know people here were upset with me because I [b]killed[/b] the bug rather than (I guess) taking it outside ? 馃槼
@bijouxbroussard people always say stuff like that 馃槀 fuck that I'ma kill them lol. Let them be a warning to all others who dare enter my home lol
Dainbramadge51-55, M
Dude I have a couple of cockroach stories.
I'll skip telling them on here so I don't become a thread pirate. LOL
But bugs in general make my skin crawl.
When I moved to Florida when I was 18 I saw more bugs, large bugs, then I ever care to see again.
Then I move to Missouri and there are even more bugs.
The best defense against cockroaches is about 75掳 air conditioning. Those little f****** get pretty slow in that kind of weather. LOL
@Dainbramadge I wanna go to Florida 馃槍

But damn sounds like you have a lot of experience with them. Sounds terrifying 馃槀
I鈥檝e seen men in black. Roaches ain鈥檛 no joke.
@Imsleepy I haven't seen that in forever but I remember what you mean 馃槄
keeper41-45, M
Cockroaches are all over the place along the Carolina coast. Not that we get used to them, but you just make sure you have good pest control peeps to keep them out.

But these f*ckers in the video - no no no thanks 馃槸
@keeper yeah they really love moist places. There's a canal nearby my house so you see a lot in the grass alongside it. I stay away at night lmao
AdaXI41-45, T
They'd have to lock me up in a secure mental institute if I saw that thing on my wall, lolz.馃槺
tacobell26-30, M
Fam that's why I can't live in a desert. I would shoot that shit up in fear
@tacobell lmao sometimes when I think I feel the presence of a ghost or something I'll put my gun next to me & be like "try me ghosts 馃槫" 馃槀
Nooo no no. Scorpions are the scariest bug to me
@caccoon scorpions are okay to me 馃槍 I live in an area where we get them all the time. I usually just kill them & move on lol
I'm glad we don't have either least not yet. 馃憖
@CrazyMusicLover not yet? Are they arriving soon? 馃槷
@ChiefWalksWith40oz Summers are hotter and drier every year, it wouldn't surprise me if they crept in here from the south. I mean, there are some cockroaches here but I've never seen one with my own eyes. Only once abroad and it looked almost friendly. 馃槀
nightjourney31-35, F
Holy mama馃槹. I heard scorpians r dangerious
@nightjourney holy mama 馃槀 okay Johnny Bravo lol. But yeah they kinda are. They're more dangerous to old people or babies though. If you or I got stung it would be like a bee sting 馃し annoying but not serious
nightjourney31-35, F
@ChiefWalksWith40oz yo i didn't know he says that lol. And arn't they wicked fast ehen they attack you?
Do you live in Texas?
TheRascallyOne31-35, M
@PhoenixPhail I think he lives in Arizona
@TheRascallyOne I would think there would be plenty of scorpions there.
@PhoenixPhail yeah, Arizona 馃憣 I know Texas has a lot of them too. They be wild out here man
CherryNow22-25, F

iamonfire69636-40, F
@ChiefWalksWith40oz I am sorry, I didn鈥檛 mean to do that. I just hate bugs like that.

iamonfire69636-40, F
