Spi­der close call

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

HA HA, yes, I had a twoyear-old and I was heav­ily preg­nant with baby No. 2 (“Car rolls into Pittwa­ter af­ter spi­der scares driver”, The Stan­dard Face­book page, Septem­ber 5).

We were driv­ing home from just do­ing the gro­cery shop­ping, and a hunts­man (a huge one) runs out of the air con vents across dash­board.

I stopped the car, tried to kill it but it was go­ing crazy, and I kept miss­ing it.

My phone had died but I was not get­ting back in the car.

I must have looked dis­tressed as a lady pulled up along­side me and asked what was wrong.

She un­loaded all of my gro­ceries into her car, and drove us home.

I sent my brother to pick up the car.

He fu­mi­gated it with spray and thank­fully the spi­der had died and was on the floor of car the fol­low­ing day.
