Terrified Woman Needed Someone To Come Over And Kill A Spider—So She Came Up With A Genius Idea 😂
Twitter

Demi Sweeney is a young woman just trying to live her life as a student in the UK. Debbie is bright and, like many people her age, she's comfortable with technology. That technological comfort came in handy one day when she found herself trapped home alone with a spider. Demi is terrified of spiders, so she devised a plan using the resources she had on hand: her phone and a little bit of spending money in her bank account. She ordered some food from an app and in the notes she asked the delivery person to please get rid of the spider.


First, she ran it by the app's help desk. They told her they couldn't guarantee a side of spider-death with her fried chicken since it was possible that whoever delivered her food would also be afraid of spiders, but that she was welcome to give it a shot. Demi ordered herself some chicken, made her request to the driver, and waited.

It worked, you guys!

The delivery guy, Joe, was afraid of spiders but he had a helmet and a sense of humor so he gave it a shot. Demi got him a chair and some paper towels and he got to work. It didn't go smoothly or according to plan but it gave everyone involved a good laugh.

"When I pointed at the top of the stairs handing him the tissue roll and getting him a chair to stand on, he then reached for the spider and accidentally dropped it on the floor where it began to run, which made me panic more. He said: 'Look away, don't look. I thanked him around 50 times; he kept saying this is so funny, whilst laughing. I wanted to hug him. A real-life hero."


The spider was flushed down the toilet, which left Demi afraid to use the bathroom for the rest of the day. But at least it wasn't hovering just over her head anymore. She posted about it on Twitter and thanked the delivery app. They found the situation as funny as we did and gave Joe a shout out.

Twitter was inspired.






Don't worry about Demi making a habit out of this. She admitted it would get really expensive and she normally has more people on hand to help. Desperate times called for desperate delivery measures!

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.
