We here at DumbFunnery often get questions and asked for advice about a number of topics. Today’s question comes from an avid reader. (Aren’t they all!?!)
‘Recently we found a very large spider in our house – what should we do?’
This is a tough question because I would like to ask a number of follow-up questions, so I’ll just answer for a few different cases.
You Saw the Spider, You Didn’t Interact with the Spider, the Spider Didn’t See You
This is fine. Do nothing, or call an exterminator. Either way is OK. But, when you call the exterminator, call from work or away from your house, and don’t be home when the exterminator does his or her thing. Also, when you get home after the exterminator has been there, say things like, ‘I can’t believe a stranger broke in!’ or ‘oh no, what did that evil stranger do!?’
You Saw the Spider, You Tried to Kill the Spider, the Spider May or May Not be Dead
Oh, you idiot. The spider has EVERYTHING on you. It knows your name, your home, your favorite shows (probably not important information but knowledge is power and spiders have 8 legs which means they are likely 4x more crafty than a human so we can’t even CONCEIVE of the ways the spider will use this information against you). I’d recommend moving, but odds are the spider will move with you which is an absolute alpha move and you’ll show up at your new house, go to bed in your new sheets (you’ll want to replace your sheets – the spider has … done things … to your old ones), and the spider will walk across your face as you sleep.
Have you considered giving up all your personal possessions and becoming a monk? This is your best option.
You Saw the Spider, You Didn’t Interact with the Spider, the Spider Saw You
The spider has established dominance. If the spider sees you, you must kill it swiftly. It now knows your character, and it finds you to be weak. Congratulations, you are now renting from a spider landlord. Your life is but a toy for the spider to play with. Just humor the spider, and you’ll live a mostly normal life.
Good luck, dear reader.
