Thread: Scenario...

    Default Scenario...

    Imagine driving along when you see a huge black spider running across your dashboard...

    In your attempt to catch it, it drops onto the floor and disappears...

    Now...

    Would you be comfortable to continue driving with it lurking in the car, not knowing when or where it will pop up again.

    OR what would be your reaction?

    It would have to be a quick attempt to flatten it without making a mess of the dash!

    Well you can either drive around at high speed with the windows open and hope it gets sucked out, or just lock the car up and starve it to death...

    Depends how big and hairy it is!! If it was big enough that I'd be worried about it being on the floor/around the car, I sure as hell wouldn't have tried to catch it in the first place!!

    If it was Tarantula size/hairiness then I'd have saved myself the bother of worrying about it subsequently as I'd probably have ended up putting the car in a ditch when the blighter first appeared on the dash!

    It was big enough to be effected by cornering G-Forces

    Spiders don't bother me but if it was a wasp i'd be out of the car before it stopped. Wasps are just mean .
