Beware of the spider...
A daily bit of fun for us here in Australia.
This is hilarious! I do this at work, all the time now.That's the thing I like about getting older, I just tell some kid to fix my computer. It's kind of funny, I never felt bossy before, then, after a few gray hairs popped up, I feel entitled to tell anyone under 30 to lift heavy stuff and handle my IT problems.
A couple years ago my wife called me to kill a spider in one of the small gardens that are typical here in the homes. They leave a small area open to the sky for plants and ventilation. Mine have stone walls and are attractive to spiders. I thought nothing of it and since I was on the way to my car at the time,I had car keys in my hand and reached down and killed the large black shiny spider with my car key. only then did I see the bright red hourglass. Smear.Black widows also have a distinctive web. It is the tightest strongest web I have experienced.
