My aunt's (humorous?) phobia

It's not that her phobia (of spiders) is funny, but one day she and one of my other aunts was investigating an old cave (I don't know where it was). They found an old civil war uniform and button and were looking at them under the flash light. Then they shone the light around the cave and above, and saw that the roof of the cave was covered with spiders! She told me "you know how I feel about spiders, I just covered my head with my jacket and backed out of there as fast as I could! - That story still gives me the willies! Though we did have a good laugh about it. How would you react? Even if you didn't have a phobia of spiders!?

I would have left. One or two spiders I can live with but a roof covered with them would creep me out. Did your Aunt say they were growling???

Although I don't have arachnophobia, I would have probably had the willies too. Not sure if I would have left the cave. It sounds like to much was to be discovered.

Oh i would have fainted as I have a huge fear of spiders. Its an irrational fear but I cant help it. I freak over a little daddy long legs. Im so glad that wasnt me.
