    I get a piece of tissue, capture it, then either; release it if the window is open, or flush it down the toilet. I rarely see one

    Spiders guard us from real pests while we sleep. We should be more grateful towards them.

    Apparently we'd be knee deep in flies (literally) if spiders weren't there to eat them!

    I can't remember the last time I saw one but I doubt I would bother getting out of my chair to do anything.

    I'd pick it up with my hands/cup and put it outside. I don't like the idea of a spider (or any creature) moving around my room while I'm a sleep.

    Well, I begin by having my breathing halted almost completely. After narrowly avoiding a massive coronary episode, I grab the nearest object with considerable heft and beat the ever-loving piss out of it.

    Freeze and stare at it, then slowly back off.

    Freeze. Hyperventilate. Throw heavy object at spider. Ask someone to clean up the corpse for me.
