It might have been pregnant and it might be laying eggs at that very moment! you have no choice but moving to a new place!

As a fellow arachnophobic that's what I would do anyway...
Yes, very funny ... NOT!
We coexisted fine last night (meaning it did not cross my path since) and I know where it came from now, actually we had a very good deal for a long time it having a net in the window frame, keeping most of the mosquitos from attacking me and me leaving it sitting there in peace. Some idiot Swiss must have thought it was his/her business to clear the net off (yes, that is an other first world problem, Swiss not minding their own business).
So I guess it came running last night for refuge or to let me know about it

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I suppose they have an excuse then. For me, such rules are simply silly. I'm sure God or whoever/whatever doesn't care in the least if you starve yourself all day or not.

You're correct. They're just pretenders (sorry, German) .... and always have been apparently.

Well no, man made rules supposedly handed down by God tell you that. Unless you have a direct link to him take whatever anyone else says about what he wants you to do with a big pinch of salt.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The spider is dead, RIP. I killed it. In self defence of course.
It just didn't seem to be able to aproach me at a normal/non attacking speed - but this time I was fast.
Sorry I derailed the therad ... but the story definitely ends here.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Had that in Scotland one morning, woke up to find a HUGE spider on my shoulder. The usual happened, then hubby looked at me and said to go back to sleep. With a spider in that room?????? Only after dismantling half the room we found the bugger under my mattress.........

Poor spider. They're your friends eating those other buggy-wuggies that you don't want in the house.

Spiders are always caught and then politely moved outside :-)

I did say I had a long term deal with it about exactly that. When someone else broke it's net it should not have attacked me

That one was not to be caught! It was a turbo one

Anyhow, we're derailing this thread. But only because Castro seems to be enjoying a problem-free time (or has real problems, which I don't hope).

Funnily enough in Malaysia most Muslims seem to be smart enough to drink/eat as they please during the day..

Crazy "rules" for crazy people I suppose.

Look at it from the bright side i.e. you're fully assimilated into Swiss culture:
