Unsurprisingly, the post attracted a fair number of comments. Many seemed to relate to the unnamed woman.
“For safety measures should probably burn the car too,” one user wrote. “Just to make sure it’s really dead.”

Others were less receptive, with one user writing:
“Sorry… no disrespect to anyone suffering from this phobia, but I just never understood (still don’t) the irrational fear of spiders that many [people] have.”
