She was used to getting shares and likes on the photos that she posted on her social media platforms. Family, friends, and strangers alike would leave comments on them all the time as well. This girl was social media famous, but let us just say that one of her photos was not like the rest. It gained a huge amount of attention in only the span of one night. However, what was it about the photo that made it blow up? Let us find out what caught everyone’s attention about it!
Always Dreamt Of Fame
Ever since Olivia Nunn was a little girl, it had been her dream to be famous. She always made sure to keep an eye on the latest news and gossip about celebrities. It is not a reach to say that she even earned an obsession with the lives of the rich and famous.
Just Another British Teen
She was just a teenager in a British town called Middlesbrough back then, so it felt like her dreams were impossible in those days. It did not occur to her that she would make it big online… However, it was not for the reason she wanted.
She Was An Aspiring Influencer
When she finally reached her twenties, she gained a humble following on social media. Olivia liked to watch modeling and makeup tutorials, which was how she trained herself to strike the perfect pose and fix her hair.
She would post her photos on Twitter and Instagram, proving that she was a natural model. Her pals even started to call her the “Selfie Queen.” This is a fitting moniker because the story we are about to tell you revolves around a particular selfie of hers.
Hitting The Town
It happened on one Friday night. She left her day job earlier than usual and got ready for a memorable night out with her friends. Olivia put on her makeup with great care and donned an outfit that flattered her figure. She planned to turn heads that night, which is not unusual at all for a young, attractive, and single woman.
Talk Of The Town
At the time, she had no idea that the selfie that she would take in the following morning was going to make people do a double-take for all the wrong reasons. What did she capture in the selfie that would become the talk of the town?
She Was The Life Of The Party
Grace, her best buddy, complimented her on the outfit that she had on. The two of them got an Uber to set off for a night full of fun and excitement. You see, Olivia has always been the life of the party.
Never Miss A Chance To Dance
That night was no different. She shamelessly flirted with strangers and danced her heart out. She must have felt unstoppable with the endless number of cocktails and the DJ playing all her favorite tunes. Well, that was what she thought at the very least.
The Day After
The morning after that, Olivia woke up feeling sore from head to toe. She had a headache that made her regret her escapades from the night before. 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 have all been there, haven’t we? However, she did not know that it was worse than she thought. She just had not realized this yet.
What The Background Showed
Olivia wanted to add some humor into her situation, so she snapped a photo of herself to send to the group chat. Even though she was still wearing her earrings and makeup from the night out, she did pull on a hoodie for added comfort some time after she returned home.
Not Even The Slightest Idea
She had no idea that she was not the only one in the photo she took. After her friends noticed that this was the case, they were all understandably hysterical! But what exactly did they see in the background?
She Did Not Look Happy
From the selfie that Olivia took and forwarded to them, it was clear that she was not feeling very well. This was not unexpected since she had a wild night out. In the photo, the young woman was looking at the camera with a pained look in her eyes.
Just A Casual Snap
She did not know that this casual snap would wreak havoc around her. It turned out that there was an unwelcome guest in the background of her photo! Her friends had been the one to notice it first.
There Was A Dark Figure
Her friends in the group chat were all beside themselves after seeing the uninvited guest they saw in the photo. We would not have heard about this story if Grace Graham, her best friend, did not share both the story and photo on Twitter. Just a couple of inches from Olivia’s face was a shocking dark figure. What could it be?
The Photo Went Viral
Since then, the photo has garnered more than 3,700 retweets and 47,700 likes. Thousands of netizens were in disbelief at what they saw. Thanks to this photo, Olivia became an internet sensation in no time at all.
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, the thing had been hiding in the hood of the hoodie all this time! Have you spotted the little intruder already?
Gaining Traction Online
After Grace went online to share the recent photo, 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.” However, how did Olivia handle such a terrifying situation? Let us find out. Trust us, her reaction was not what you are thinking.
How Olivia Reacted
We bet that you would have freaked out if you found out that there was a creepy crawly so close to you, right? Did Olivia react like that? You should know that she did not just whip the thing off her head or screamed as loud as she could.
Not What You Expected
For now, let us just tell you that her reaction to the arachnid was nothing short of priceless. Something you would probably not expect at all. So wait until you see just how it all ended…
The Overreaction Of Netizens
Twitter users gave their two cents on the hilarious but terrifying incident. Hilarity ensued, of course. It looks like everyone felt like overreacting to the unwanted guest in the photo, but this is usually the case when we are dealing with these eight-legged creatures.
What Was The Feedback?
‘No can u imagine anything worse especially hungover,’ a user said. A different one chimed in to say, ‘Literally, I’d cry for the next 10 days.’ But was there really any need for Olivia to be scared? Was she in real 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. Do not get too excited just yet because the article went on to say, “However, their bites can be nasty and cause hours of pain for the victim.”
What Is Spider Season?
Arachnophobes would not be happy to hear that it is common to see spiders indoors in the United Kingdom in early September. As the weather starts to cool, many spiders look for shelter inside the house in order to breed.
Let’s Get Some Facts
This time of the year is typically called “spider season” for this very reason. An entomologist from the University of Gloucestershire by the name of Prof. Adam Hart informed the BBC that more than or at least “80 percent of the spiders’ people see are males.”
The Twitterverse Was Panicking
A lot of people chimed in on the matter as soon as they saw the post. There were various hilarious comments from netizens such as: ‘My soul would have left my body,’ and ‘It’s the fact it’s got her trapped in there like Ryan Reynolds in Buried… nowhere to run. Can’t take the hood down, can’t move, can’t blink, nothing.’ At any rate, it is now time for us to hear exactly how Olivia reacted to it.
Calm & Collected
Not a single person would have blamed her if she screamed or buried the hoodie below the ground. However, Olivia actually stayed calm and collected!
She Was Not Bothered At All
As a matter of fact, this was the way she responded when a friend commented to ask how she was dealing with such a “trauma”: ‘Feel fine tbh spiders are my friends.’ We admire her for having nerves of steel because we would have lost it there and then.
He Had A Similar Experience
Another user saw her post and recalled a similar experience. He also took a photo of himself without realizing that there was a spider crawling along the lining of his sweater. ‘I’ve been there trust me,’ he wrote after he shared a chilling photo that showed a giant black spider making its way across the collar.
Not An Unusual Fear
There are studies that talk about the fear of spiders. One of them said, “Arachnophobia tops the list as the commonly diagnosed of all phobic disorders. Large-scale population surveys indicate that nearly 5% of the global population suffers from arachnophobia… of those people, the majority tend to be women.” But what can we possibly do to stop the eight-legged creatures from wreaking havoc in our homes?
No Need To Freak Out
Even though plenty of Twitter users found the story disturbing, you should not panic. Experts assure all of us that there are things that we can do to “spider proof” our house when spider season rolls in.
The least that you can do is to vacuum the house on a regular basis. On top of that, they also recommend getting rid of spider webs right away to discourage the arachnids from residing in your territory!
8 Legged Creatures
Every year, eight-legged creatures begin to violate your homes as they look for a mate or escape the weather outside. Researches have explained that the females can be seen on webs in garages and windowsills, while the males roam around looking for chances to mate.
Most spiders are not harmful to human beings. While all species of spiders can bite, often their fangs are too small to pierce human skin, so no damage will be caused.
Keep Your Home Spider-Free
Various techniques to keeping spiders out of your home have been suggested over the years. The main way to keep your home spider-free is to keep your house clean and tidy, thereby limiting the number of places a spider can hide inside your home.
Another great tip that comes highly recommended by many is to invest in essential oils because strong scents will ward off spiders, so things like tea tree, rose, citrus, peppermint, and lavender all work exceptionally well.
Seal Up The Holes
It is also so important that during “spider season” you close and tape up any cracks that could allow a spider into your house, or even worse. use it as a hiding place. You certainly wouldn’t want that, right?
Friend vs. Foe
For most people, these eight-legged fellows are certainly the most terrifying thing in the world. But for a handful of other individuals they can be awesome ‘friends’, either way, its always a bit scary when you spot something unexpected in the unanticipated space.
