Spider close call
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.
