Real life terror


Well-Known Forumite
Random conversation at work has inspired me to start a new thread...

We have the Happy thread and the Rant thread - how's about the Terror thread?

What scares / has scared you of late?

Example that led to this post: Wasps 'n' bees

I don't have a fear of the furry, stinging little blighters - unless in the shower. Picture this:

You are in the shower, scrubbing away, possibley singing happily to yourself. And then you hear it, "Zzzzzz". It's a meaty Zzzzz, something that sounds as though it may be carrying an offensive weapon. You can hear it but you can't see it - so you start tentatively poking objects to see if anything pops out. Just as you give up and decide it is 'outside' the window, there is it - the mother of all wasps - you've annoyed it, and you're naked.


Not a good place to be.

Ah well, here ends my mad random post. Anyone else have any nightmare scenarios to share?
