Woman orders delivery takeaways so someone can save her from a spider

Sometimes our fears cause us to react in a certain way - maybe by panicking, sweating profusely, or getting hungry for KFC.

A woman by the name of Demi Sweeney has an extreme phobia of spiders. So extreme, she didn't know how to handle the spider that left her trapped alone in her apartment.

Unable to kill it herself, she came up with a genius plan: get food delivered to the house, and get the delivery guy to kill the spider.

Demi messaged local UK delivery service Deliveroo with her dilemma, and while they warned her the delivery person could equally be as frightened of spiders - she placed her order of KFC and waited.

And thankfully Joe the Delivery guy turned up and handled the heroic deed, despite being scared of spiders himself.

"When I pointed at the top of the stairs handing him the tissue roll and getting him a chair to stand on, he then reached for the spider and accidentally dropped it on the floor where it began to run, which made me panic more. He said: 'Look away, don't look,'" she told BuzzFeed.

"I thanked him around 50 times; he kept saying this is so funny, whilst laughing. I wanted to hug him. A real-life hero."

Not all heroes wear capes!
