Trapdoor Spider Strikes

I think we all can empathize with this cricket. My boss's office is like this trapdoor spider's spidey-hole. If you aren't alert, and you walk by and catch his notice - WHAM! - he strikes, and you've just been handed an armload of new work and a couple of hours of unpaid overtime.

Count how many times you sit there and watch this spider strike. I'll bet it's more than you'd like to fess up to.

Thanks for the gif, Miroslav.

Reminds me of the hand from Chiller Theatre.

I must confess that I have watched this more times than I can count just for the sheer thrill of it.

And that is submitted by a gal who "gets no thrill from champagne, mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all but darling, spidey (ed.), how can it betrue, that I get a kick out of you"...and your completely kick ass eating habits.

Yep, there goes a good night sleep. And I'll spend valuable houres checking the house for far too big and monster-like 8-legged freaks of nature.
Thank you.

That was terrifying.
I watched it over and over again, somehow hoping the lil cricket would make it that time, jumping everytime that spider came out.
