Afraid of a itsy bitsy spider or how perfume saved my life

So the other day as I was speeding driving to work  when I thought I saw something moving out of the corner of my right eye on my rear view mirror (you know the one in the middle of the windshield- not to be confused with the ones that stick out the sides of the car). 

I glance and don't see anything, then it happens again and I look really quickly and I see a... SPIDER

My first reaction is obviously sane and  mature... screaming and a long string of cuss words because the spider that is 2 millimeters by 2 millimeters is going to fall onto my steering wheel causing me to freak out and panic, take my hands off the wheel and crash right into the median, because obviously that's what the spider is plotting. 

 I can't pull over because I'll be late for work, and by late I mean 10 minutes later than I normally am so like 20 minutes late total.

So I do what any logical girl would do.  

I dig through my purse and find my Philosophy Love perfume and then I proceed to frantically spray the rear view mirror until it is totally soaked.  The front, the back, the sides, and even part of my dashboard,  just in case.  I don't even want to know what the people driving next to me were thinking.   

It's been days and the smell in my car is still unbearable.  I won't be wearing that perfume anymore.


In good news I haven't had another spider sighting since then.

  5. Good job on the quick thinking with the perfume! I do the same thing, but I'm usually at home when there is a bug sighting. I would have been freaking out in the car too.
