Why are cockroaches not scared of people?

I hate it when I see cockroaches. I even hate it more when they come after me like they're not even aware that I can kill them anytime. I don't even know if they have brains. hehe they're just so clueless! Well they're very dirty so we have to get rid of them to prevent the spread of germs.

Hahaha. Maybe because they know we're scared of them. I often think about that too. Sometimes they'll even chase us and I hate it and scared at the same time. One time I was in the kitchen and I saw a cockroach, I tried to chase it but I can't, it's just so fast and tiny I can't kill it. Then I gave up, then it started chasing me! I kept running away from it but it runs towards me. It's so scary! Haha.

I'm pretty sure that's because they are the strongest sons of ... in the world: they can take radiation!!!!!!!

Hi. Ephraim123. I don't like cockroaches either. They are disgusting critters. They love coming in from the outside of your home. I used to live in a trailer that had cockroaches from all over the place. It was a mess!!! I would try to kill as much of them as I can..

Maybe they just panicked and headed towards you some sort of a scared reflex mechanism, just my opinion though =)

Same here I really hate cockroach actually I have a phobia with it. When I see one right now, I would scream for help because I am afraid to go near them and kill them, I have this thought that they fly and flew in to my face. Yuckk! that's why my sister bought me an insect spray so that I will no longer scream like a child when I see one.
