Just in time for Halloween we want you to share with us something that might be spooky to you, but others think it's probably a bit irrational.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is your irrational fear????

  • Drawn on eyebrows
  • I'm not sure any of these are irrational! Seem pretty legitimate to me. I'd have to say tall buildings (from the outside, I'm not afraid of heights) snakes are my biggest and most rational fear!!!
  • Being trapped anywhere and any way possible. If I can't find a way to get out, I will panic. I was actually stuck in my home office and I started to panic because I couldn't get the door open. And now I know how to open a stuck door from either side with a plastic card, sturdy twine, and a paper clip.
  • Dying. Spiders. Any high impact sport that might break my knees like water skiing or snow skiing. Oh and balls. No not those kind!!!! I don’t like sports with balls either. Like volley ball. Baseball... I’m afraid of them being thrown at my face.
  • Falling in ice because I can't get up or driving over bridges with water below. Afraid my car will go over & dying by drowning does not sound like a good time at all!!
  • A semi truck falling over while I’m driving next to it...and llamas
  • Accidentally driving off the road into one of the giant ditches full of icy cold water. Never even been close but if there’s a big ditch full of water I’m definitely driving slower and more carefully.
  • Public speaking...which is actually the number one phobia.
  • Escalators- but only going down
  • Mine used to always be deer. Hated them. My heart would stop if I even saw one. Terrified. I was certain I would die by one jumping off an overpass and through my windshield and hoofing me to death. Then I moved to northern Michigan and had bears in my yard. Suddenly my irrational fear changed.
  • Parking garages terrify me. I seriously get elevated heart rate and start shaking. They could come crashing down anytime, muggings, rapes and not to mention there are always shoot outs that happen in them (well, at least in the movies).
  • Driving behind or by logging trucks. I envision them flying through the windshield or the ties popping and them rolling out and crushing me.
  • Bees.... being stung terrifies me enough to scream like my 3 yr old self and run like an idiot, regardless of where I am and what I'm doing
  • Aliens. Because seriously it could happen. Js
  • Getting struck by lightning
  • Ostriches. Beady eyed buggers, plotting against us.
  • Literally looking up at something tall.
  • Maybe not irrational for this state but...driving at night, hitting a deer and having deer hooves coming through the windshield and killing me
  • You mean people only just have 1
  • People who hug too tightly (really, confined spaces). As soon as i feel like I am trapped, I panic.
  • Driving in the snow...which is why I moved back to Arkansas ...although ice in these mountains is no fun either
  • Inflatable yard ornaments
  • Being abducted.
  • Dying, bats, and driving in the rain or snow at night.
  • Having my legs pinned down.
  • Bridges make me freeze up instantly
  • Whenever I put my blanket over my head, I feel like I am inhaling my exhale and it freaks me out. Maybe I should try it now, after 6 months of wearing a mask for 45 hrs a week...lol
  • My children ending up with horrible significant others...
  • A vampire biting my neck if it's not covered with the sheet.
  • That fish are going to bite my toes in a lake where I can’t see the bottom.
  • Trapped in a room of spiders or frogs. Or, any mention of tornado watch or warning puts me into the fetal position.
  • Alligators. I live in Michigan. Still. Alligators.
  • Stepping on bugs that crunch. I just can't do it. I can't even watch it in a movie.
  • The basement stairs.
  • Mice. They freak me out so bad!
  • Bungee cords.
  • That when I drive over a cigarette someone throws out of their car and I drive over it, my car will burst into flames
  • Walking over grates in the sidewalks
  • Water deeper than my knees.
  • Elevators that make creepy noises
  • Heights, even when I know I'm safe
  • Spiders, the woods in the dark, and dying alone
  • Being eaten by an animal
  • Water, deep dark water.
  • Tornados and Seaweed
  • Someone standing in my closet in the dark watching me sleep
  • That my car is going to be the one on the bridge that causes it to collapse. Is it irrational though?
  • Someone holding my neck, even if it is in a gentle way. Leads to dying by the neck break way ugh!! And the worst fear...nightmares of these...Tsunami’s!! Why irrational? We live in MI!! According to Deep Impact MI is safe, but still a huge fear!!!
  • Spiders, and the dark
  • Spiders and worms...yuk
  • For many years, I was afraid my husband would beat me to death in my sleep with his bedside baseball bat. He's always been a very calm, kind person. I was sure I'd break him and he'd lose it on my one night. I no longer have that fear. I don't let him have the bat next to the bed anymore!
  • Seeds!!!!!! Like the inside of a pepper. Omg they're so gross, it makes me cringe! Lmao
  • I am terrified of walking over subway grates and air vents on the sidewalks in cities. My husband rolls his eyes every time I walk around them.
  • I am very afraid of chickens. I won’t go near them. As a kid my neighbors chickens would peck at my feet when I rode up on my bike in sandals.
  • My irrational fear is horses. They are beautiful, but way too big and powerful. Not gonna kick me! Also, cotton balls. Creep me out...
  • I am scared to swim in lakes because I am afraid I will step on a dead body or body parts.
  • TQOTD: Impaling objects on vehicles in front of me... Definitely a fear. I will lower my speed and/or get over, go around.
  • My irrational fear is looking out a window and just see a creepy smiling face staring back at me
  • My biggest fear is heights like a lot of people, but mine has way more to do with climbing up but even more down ladders. Going from a roof top to that first ladder step might be the scariest thing on planet earth.
  • I double check my review mirror when I'm backing up bc I fear running someone over.
  • What's my irrational fear? Driving a pick up truck. I won't ever do it again. My "logic" behind it is if I am in a crash, my seatbelt fails, and I go through the windshield it's higher off the ground than a car. I know the chances of this scenario playing out is almost never but the one time I drove a truck I was so scared that I almost fell when I got out from my legs being so shaky and weak.
  • ? Of da day..... afraid that a deer will go through my front car window and get trapped in there with me.
  • Irrational fear : car washes, I get such bad anxiety when I go through them!
  • Irrational fear? How about being stuck in quarantine with fish and a bottle of vodka.
  • Love you guys! But I'm super terrified of car washes.
  • Emus. They are large flightless birds like ostriches. I don't know what it is but they creep me out. I love all animals even the ones most people find creepy but adult emus... I can't do them. I had an irrational fear of becoming a “Jane Doe”, it was a point in my life where I was watching way too much Law and Order SVU (Special Victims Unit) and ID Channel content. I started getting crazy nightmares about rape, and murder, night sweats, the works. Finally I just got a tattoo of my full name written across my ankle in cursive. So if someone did end up murdering me they would have to chop off my foot to keep my identify hidden. It worked! No more nightmares or fears of being a “Jane Doe”!
  • SWB: Dude. Fish. I'm deathly afraid of squirrels. Is it irrational? Sure is. But oh my gosh, those furry little turds with their beady eyes look like they're staring into your soul and thinking about all the ways that their devil claws can take over your body. I will cross the freaking street to avoid walking past one. All I think about is the squirrel that launched itself onto Chevy Chase in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Oh yeah, and ET. We've talked this one before. He looks like a wrinkly man part and makes writes noises. But yeah. Squirrels. Who would have thought, right?
  • When people eat or drink things that turn their mouths blue. I irrationally think they can’t breathe and it gives me anxiety
  • Being eaten my a shark in a pool.
