ALMOST Some Compassion for Spiders
No, I don't really have much compassion for spiders. I just feel a bit guilty at the thought of immediately smashing one when I see it crawling on a wall in my space. I use to smash the suckers. Now, I get a cup and papers and allow it to go inside where I quickly take it back outside where it belongs. Even the ones that move super fast.
On the other hand, we don't get huge spiders where we are. If I found a larger spider that looked questionably dangerous I would smack that sucker! No one in my household is getting bit by something that could be harmful. We don't tend to get harmful spiders thankfully. Just really annoying house spiders. And back OUTSIDE they all go. I DON'T do spiders! And I would jump if I missed and the thing landed on me.
