My new nightmare Created by rreker on 11/6/2013 8:56:50 AM
I would like to introduce you to your next nightmare -- banana spiders:
This is a real thing. Apparently a family in the UK found these deadly spiders sprouting from produce they bought from a local grocery. The person was EATING the banana when she noticed the white spot... and upon sticking it close to her eyes realized they were tiny spiders.
I'll let you take a moment to scream...
The horrified family contacted the store. You know what they said? Those little spiders are harmless. They rarely grow to adulthood... don't worry about it. Then the manager gave the family a $16 gift card to make things good. NOPE -- that excuse and reaction is not good enough.
The family later got a larger lump sum after the press picked this up.
From now on... I'll be inspecting EVERYTHING from a grocery store much closer. If I found these spiders on my food... It would ruin my appetite for life. Either that or the only things I'll eat will have to be deep fried first.
