    Was it ironic?
    Did I use the wrong tool for the job?
    Is there a spider swatter?
    Should I have just released it outside?
    Do I have too much time on my hands?
    Nice sense of irony! Yes, very ironic. I love that kind of humor.

    Personally, I wouldnt kill one of God's creation without a good reason.

    If the spider is minding its own buisness and doing what spiders do, I'll just leave it be to catch the other little critters that fly into its web.

    I belive that each and every living thing needs to be left alone to live as it should,even spiders. IF they are the mean kind, then by all means eliminate it or at least move it to a different spot where it cant interfere with your plans.

    Its important to respect all of creation. I think that indiscrimatley killing things it not good for the mind or soul.



















    Unless of course it's a tick or a chigger and then it deserves to die.

    I would be impressed that the DD actually came up with a statement of being ironic.
    Most would just scream, squeal and run and hide.

    Give the daughter a high five and tell her to thank a teacher....

    Don't you people know that a shoe is the correct tool to kill spiders?

    I take it that you have never been introduced to a colony of fire ants.

    Spiders capture and eat flys, and you killed the spider with something used to kill the flies. I get the irony of that.

    A fly killing a spider would be pretty ironic too. Just saying.

    I believe in respecting most creatures. However a little girl in my sunday school class was bitten on her face by a brown recluse. After seeing what that did to her face (after she had spent a couple months in the hospital) I will walk out of my way to step on a spider.

    I did recently come across the biggest scariest looking spider I'd seen in I don't know how long recently here at work. I didn't step on it. I jumped from a good stride length away and landed on it as hard as I could. Unfortunately I then had to clean up the mess.

    I agree with you, to a point. If I'm outside, and come across a crawling critter, I generally leave it alone, unless it's a danger (poisonous) or is coming after me (ticks). If it's inside, then all bets are off. I stay out of their house (webs), they'd better stay out of mine.
