This Woman Ordered Deliveroo To Get Rid Of A Spider
If you live alone and are terrified of spiders, it's likely that you'll have been trapped in a sticky situation once or twice... do you just leave the house (and never come back... it's the spider's now), or call a friend for help?
Well, one woman from England went for the latter. Except she didn't call a friend... she ordered Deliveroo to come to her rescue!
"My fear of spiders was taken to a whole new level today in which I ordered food in a hope that the delivery driver would remove the spider," Demi Sweeney from Bournemouth, England wrote on Twitter. Adding, "Joe @Deliveroo @DeliverooHelp you are an actual LIFESAVER".

"Sounds silly but this is a serious question," 22-year-old Demi wrote in a message to Deliveroo Help. Going on to say, "I have a huge phobia of siders, there's one in the corridor of our house near the door - if I order food through Deliveroo is it possible at all if the driver could get rid of it?"
Deliveroo replied promptly, telling her to "request this in the 'delivery note' section", but warned her that the driver could be scared too!
What a guy! Great to see Joe could lend a helping hand - we hope nobody got stung!— Deliveroo Help (@DeliverooHelp) May 31, 2018
However, it seems he wasn't.
"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," Demi told BuzzFeed. "He said: 'Look away, don't look.'"
What a hero!
