She was used to taking photos to share and like them that she uploaded on her social networks. Family, friends, and strangers alike will always leave a comment on them as well. On social networking sites, this young woman was well known, so let’s say one of her pictures was not like most of them. It received a great deal of attention in just the time frame of one night. What would it be about the photo that made it blow up, though? Let us find out what has attracted the attention of everyone!
Always Dreamt Of Fame
Ever since Olivia Nunn was a little girl, being famous has always been a big part of her dreams. She always decided to keep an eye on the latest news and gossip about celebrities. It’s not easy to say she was obsessed with the lives of the rich and famous.
Just Another British Teen
Back then, in a British town called Middlesbrough, she was just a young teen, so it began to feel like her fantasies were unattainable in those days. It didn’t happen to her that she was going online to make it big. However, it was not for the reason she wanted.
She Was An Aspiring Influencer
She earned a humble following on various social media sites when she eventually hit her twenties on social networking sites. Olivia liked to watch modeling and makeup tutorials, and that’s how she taught herself to hit the ideal poses and fix her hair.
She would post her images on Twitter and Instagram, proving that she was a natural model. Her friends even started calling her the “Selfie Queen.” Since this tale we are about to tell you tends to revolve around her own particular selfie, this is a suitable nickname.
Hitting The Town
It happened one Friday night. She left her day job earlier than usual and got ready with her friends for a memorable night out. Olivia put on her makeup with great care and donned an outfit that flattered her figure. She was planning to turn heads that night, which is not at all unusual for a young, attractive, single woman.
Talk Of The Town
She had no idea at the time, for all the wrong reasons, that the selfie she would take the next morning was going to make people do a double-take. What did she capture in a selfie that would become the talk of the town?
She Was The Life Of The Party
Her best friend, Grace, admired her because of the outfit she wore. They both got an Uber to set off for an exciting and fun-filled night. You see, Olivia has always been the life of the party, which is why it isn’t a surprise that a lot of people admired her.
Never Miss A Chance To Dance
That night, it was not different. She flirted shamelessly with strangers and danced right out of her heart. She must have felt unstoppable with the endless number of cocktails and the DJ playing all of her favorite tunes. Well, that was the least of what she thought about.
The Day After
The morning following that, Olivia woke up feeling sore from head to toe. From the night before, she had a headache that had made her regret her escapades. In bed, she texted her friends and thought that her day could only get better from there.
This is a pretty fair assumption when you are dealing with a hangover. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? However, she did not know that it was worse than she thought. She just was not yet aware of what actually happened.
What The Background Showed
Olivia wanted her scenario to add a bit of humor, so she took a picture of herself to send to the group chat. She pulled on a hoodie for added comfort sometime after she returned home, even though she was still wearing her earrings and makeup from the night out.
Not Even The Slightest Idea
She didn’t know she wasn’t the only one she’d taken in the photo. After her friends noticed that this was the case, they were all understandably hysterical! But in the background, what did they see exactly? Is it something so horrifying? Let’s find out.
She Did Not Look Happy
The selfie that Olivia took and forwarded to them made it clear that she did not feel very well. This was not unexpected since she was having a wild night out. In the photograph, the young woman looked at the camera with a pained look in her eyes.
Just A Casual Snap
She was not aware that the photo she took would wreak havoc. As it turned out, her friends noticed that there was an unwelcome guest in the background of the photo that she sent them. If it weren’t for her friends, she would not have been able to see it.
There Was A Dark Figure
Her friends were all beside themselves in the group chat after seeing the uninvited guest that they saw in the photo. We would not have heard of this story if Grace Graham, her best friend, had not shared both the story and the photo on Twitter. Just a few inches from Olivia’s face was a shocking dark figure. What could that possibly be?
The Photo Went Viral
Since then, the photo has managed to garner over 3,700 retweets and 47,700 likes. There were thousands of netizens who disbelieved what they saw. Thanks to this photo, Olivia became an internet sensation in no time at all because of this.
There Was A Little Intruder
However, what was in the photo that both revolted and enthralled all of these people? Some people, maybe even you, would call it their worst nightmare. You see, that thing was hiding in a hoodie hood all this time! Have you spotted the little intruder already?
Gaining Traction Online
After Grace went online to begin sharing the latest image, the views and reactions shot up in just a few minutes. She later made a comment about the photo that she received from her best friend.
The Famous Hangover Selfie
In her post, Grace shared, “Nearly 24 hours later, I still cannot get over Olivia sending a hungover selfie in the group chat, and there’s a spider just chilling in her hood.” How did Olivia deal with such a frightening situation, though? Just let us find out. Believe us, and her reaction was not what you were thinking about.
How Olivia Reacted
We bet that if you found out you were so close to a creepy crawl, you would have crept out, right? Has Olivia reacted like this? You should know, she didn’t just whip the thing off her head or scream as loud as she could.
Not What You Expected
For now, let us tell you that her initial reaction to the arachnid is truly nothing less than invaluable. Something you would probably not expect at all. In fact, we dare say that you have no idea as to how she reacted at all! So wait until you see how everything ended…
The Overreaction Of Netizens
Twitter users spent their two cents on the hilarious but scary incident. Hilarity ensued, of course. It looks like everyone felt like overreacting to the unwanted guest in the photo, but when we deal with these eight-legged creatures, this is generally the case.
What Was The Feedback?
One Twitter user said, ‘No can u imagine anything worse, especially hungover.’ While another chimed in to say, “I would literally cry for the next 10 days.” But was there really any need to scare Olivia? Was she in genuine danger?
Not Deadly But Still Painful
“There are only three species of spider in the UK that can bite a human – these are the cellar spider, the woodlouse spider, and the false widow spider. No UK spiders are poisonous, and there are no killer spiders living in the UK,” read an article on heart.co.uk. Don’t get all too excited, as the article also wrote, “However, their bites can be nasty and cause hours of pain for the victim.”
What Is Spider Season?
Arachnophobes would not be delighted to hear that it is common to see spiders indoors in the United Kingdom in early September. Before they could start to breed, many spiders look for shelter inside the house as the weather begins to cool.
Let’s Get Some Facts
For this very reason, this time of the year is typically called “spider season.” An entomologist from Gloucestershire University by the name of Professor Adam Hart reported to the BBC that more than or at least more than “80 percent of the people who see spiders are males.”
The Twitterverse Was Panicking
A lot of individuals chimed in on the subject as quickly as they saw the thread. There have been several hilarious remarks by netizens, such as: “My soul would have left my body,” and “It’s the fact that it’s got her trapped in there like Ryan Reynolds in Buried… nowhere to run. Can’t take down the hood, can’t move, can’t blink, nothing.” At any rate, it is now time for us to hear exactly how Olivia responded to it.
Calm & Collected
If she decided to scream and bury the hoodie straight down the ground right away, not one single person would be mad at her as they would understand right away. However, she actually reacted quite calm and collected! What a surprise, right?
She Was Not Bothered At All
As a matter of fact, when a friend commented to ask how she was dealing with such a ‘trauma,’ this was the way she reacted: ‘Feel fine, tbh spiders are my friends.’ We admire her for having nerves of steel because if we were the ones there, we would have just lost it right away.
He Had A Similar Experience
Another user saw her post and remembered a similar thing happening. He also took a photo of himself without noticing that his sweater’s lining had a spider crawling along with it. ‘Trust me, I’ve been there,’ he wrote after sharing a chilling photo showing a giant black spider worked its way through the collar.
Not An Unusual Fear
There are studies on the fear of spiders that talk about it. One of them was saying, “As the most commonly diagnosed of all phobic disorders, arachnophobia tops the list.” Large-scale population surveys show that arachnophobia affects almost 5 percent of the world’s population… The bulk of these individuals tend to be women. But what can we do to prevent the eight-legged creatures from causing havoc in our homes?
No Need To Freak Out
Although the story was a bit disturbing for several Twitter users, there is no need to panic at all. Experts assure everyone that by the time the spider season rolls in, there are a lot of ways for us to keep our house “spider-proof.”
At the very least, what you could do is vacuum the house regularly. Making sure that your house is clean is one good way to prevent spiders from residing in your territory. It is also heavily recommended that you get rid of spider webs right away!
8 Legged Creatures
Every year, the eight-legged creatures start violating your homes as they seek a mate or escape the weather outside. Studies have shown that women can be seen on websites in garages and windowsills while males wander around looking for opportunities to mate.
For us humans, most spiders are not generally dangerous. While every form of spiders can bite, their fangs are usually too small to even cause and damage to the human skin nor even pierce it. This is why there is no need to worry, as there will be no harm caused.
Keep Your Home Spider-Free
Different methods have been suggested over the years to keep spiders out of your home. The primary way to keep your home spider-free is to keep your house clean and tidy, thus restricting the number of places a spider can hide inside your home.
An even better suggestion that many highly recommend is to invest in natural products because strong fragrances prevent spiders’ work. Hence, things like tea tree, rose, citrus, peppermint, as well as lavender all work outstandingly well for this purpose.
Seal Up The Holes
It is also important for you to seal and close any cracks that you have in your home during “spider season” with tapes so that you could prevent spiders from entering your house. The worst-case scenario for you if you left those holes unsealed is that they may use it as their hiding place. For sure, you do not want any of that.
Friend vs. Foe
For most individuals, these eight-legged species are certainly a terrifying thing in the world. But for a handful of other people, they can be awesome “friends.” Either way, when you recognize something unexpected in an unexpected space, it’s always a bit scary.
