yesterday, i found a baby spider in my office. i took it planning to feed it to my vfts. on my drive home, i noticed that i didn't have gas in my car so i stopped by a gas station. As I was looking at the spider, I realized that it's a baby spider...i felt bad, so i let it go.
now one of the girls that i work with is ananimal person (she loves animals). So, I told her about me letting the spider go. I thought she would be a little less upset (she knew what i was going to do the the spider). instead, i get b****ed at.
She said " why did you let it go you should have just let it stay here in this place (office), so it can build it's own little place".
She was very upset.
She also said that I should have just killed the spider.
After all the suffering that it had (the spider was in a little plastic cup. I covered it with GLAD Wrap then I put holes in it so that it can breathe.
I love all animals. Vertebrae or invertebrae it does not matter.
But for her to b**ch at me for leaving the spider at a gas station is a little absurd. Don't you think?
Was I wrong for letting the spider go?
or is she overreaacting?
You did what you felt was right, that was her opinion. It is unforunate some people are that way. I would just blow it off or if anything laugh it off - maybe the spider will repay you by biting her in butt for being rude k\d [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. I really do not hope spider bites anyone on a serious note.

I think a spider can make a home anywhere. I don't think they are real family oriented so relocating shouldnt be a problem. :-)
If she is a true friend you can tell her to F off with no repurcussions... much like you could tell me the same.
I think someone needs to switch to decaff!!!!
I honestly wouldn't pay any attention to to her remarks she is way off the hook!
I don't know what kind of place you work at but if there's a bunch of people working there it would have eventually gotten stepped on anyway. Not to mention it realy isn't the greatest thing in the world to have spider webs hanging off of the walls of businesses.
If I were you Id stay away from her [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I think she's got issues [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

If you do get a tarantula my only recommendation would be to keep it in a terrarium :biggrin:
Seriously, though I have never had one, tarantulas are supposed to make great pets. Although I have heard you should avoid the Baboon Tarantula as it has no qualms about takinf a stab at just about anything
You were right in removing the spider from your office. *Although if a spider decided to make its web in a little corner of my office, i wouldn't mind as long as the boss don't mention nothing [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] *Plastic cup and plastic wrap is a perfectly fine container to transport a spider. *Me, I would never feed a spider to my cp's since I love spiders. *Shame on you [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
Tarantulas make great pets. *Don't require much room and requires very little care. *I keep several species of Tarantulas, really cool pets! *If you need suggestions on which one to get, message me.
im looking for either a chilean rose or greenbottle blue. do you know where i can find them?
also, what can you say about tarantulas as far as their temperament.
oh! i cant leave the spider at work. i work at a hospital
