Phobias...whatcha got?

I just fished this fella out of my sump pump pit.  I missed the first time and he hid below the pump.  Got him second time.  Relocated him to "Bullfrog Central" at the pond in the cemetery behind my house:

Poor fella he would have croaked there if I didn't trap and relocate him... Cats, on other had would have went nuts in basement had it made it past and over the sump cover! 😕😞

 

See, that has made me feel sick. Only glanced at it a second.

Oops. 😏

 

I subscribe to the "only way to beat your phobias is to confront your phobias."  LoL... I didn't grab that bugger, I flicked him into a *pitcher!

*Don't fret, we haven't drank juice or lemonade outta that pitcher for years.  It's permanently on "sump duty" to trap and relocate wayward critters! 😉

Bees/wasps...why the F do we have bees and wasps? And don't give me any of that pollination nonsense...we can get plenty of that from butterflys and moths. One time had a wasp in the family room. I made my wife go in and take care of it while stayed in the kitchen to protect the kids.

 

Also, feet. Not scared of them, but 99.99% of people's feet are f'ing gross (mine included)

I agree with bees and wasps. Was having a great day trout fishing last summer and stepped on a mud wasp nest…10 stings later (to head and legs) my son drove me down mountain to ER. Worst experience. Now carry Benadryl in my fishing pack.

Wasps: Do you wanna live in piles of insects?

 

Bees:  Do you wanna eat?

People in general as I'm often uncomfortable in social situations.

 

I've had one for dogs as well since I was little.  I think it stemmed from living next door to a mean German Shepard that was always barking violently in the backyard more often than not and at me a good number of times.  Wasn't just me, our mailman at the time said it tried to bite him a few times as it got older.

 

A few weeks ago a dog jumped all over me walking and I just let it without engaging with him.  It's like I still never know kind of thing

I have fear of funeral homes.

 

My parents were divorced when I was 3 and surprisingly my father took the kids.  It is even more surprisingly now I look back on my life and how poor he was with kids.  I never heard from my mother's side of family until I needed to go to a wake and it was hers.  A man, my uncle I was told, asked me to take the pillow from her head since I was her oldest child.  I avoided funeral homes for most of my life after that going to one wake for a coworker's wife which was not at a funeral home.  When my step mother, the woman who raised me, died, I went to her wake at funeral home and the whole time there I felt like crawling into a coffin and hiding.

I think I developed a fear of heights over the years. I used to climb trees and climb on roofs with no issues when I was young,  now I freak out when I have to get up on the roof to fetch a frisbee or whatever else the kids get stuck up there.

 

Also hate 🕷
