Face of the day

Today’s face of the day or a spider very much like him is responsible for making an Australian man scream like a girl. His screams and violent outbursts in reaction to the spider were so loud that the Police were called to what the neighbours thought was a domestic disturbance.

It sounded like another domestic violence case for police in Australia after multiple calls about a man shouting “I’m going to kill you, you are dead”, along with high pitched screams and furniture being tossed around – however all was not as it seemed.

When police arrived at the Wollstonecraft address on Sydney’s North Shore, they were prepared for the worst.

After banging on the door a rather out-of-breath man answered. They recorded the following conversation on their Facebook page.
Police: “Where’s your wife.”

Male: “Umm I don’t have one.”

Police: “Where’s your girlfriend.”

Male: “Umm I don’t have one.”

Police: “We had a report of a domestic and a woman screaming, where is she?”

Male: “I don’t know what you’re talking about I live alone.”

Police: “Come on mate people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit.”

At this point the male became very sheepish.

Police: “Come on mate, what have you done to her.”

Male: “It was a spider.”

Police: “Sorry??”

Male: “It was a spider, a really big one!!”

Police: “What about the women screaming?”

Male: “Yeah sorry that was me, I really, really hate spiders”

The man had been trying to exterminate the spider using an anti-bug spray.

Police say after a look around the apartment that they were happy to report that no-one was injured… except for the spider.

I will let you all in on a little secret. I protect big tough Cam from spiders. If he was allowed to shoot them there would be no problem but as an indoor spider gun is yet to be invented, I am the one he calls when one needs to be exterminated.

Our daughter played a prank on him at my parents’ house a few years ago. It was the perfect prank because the spider was so big and hairy that Cam thought that it had to be a fake rubber one so he cockily walked up to it and went to pick it up. When it moved, his reaction had us all laughing helplessly with tears in our eyes. It was classic. Without going into specifics let’s just say that he put his man card in serious jeopardy that day.
