Doorbell, ringtone, neighbor’s loud door shut, firework/explosives.

A spider crawling up my shirt towards my face.
Spiders in general.
Quite a few years ago, I was camping in a cabin my grandfather built. I moved something and a large hairy spider jumped out onto the floor about 2’ from my face. I yelled with surprise, whipped out my .22 revolver and splattered that SOB.

@kritiper shooting at damn spiders, or the spiders shooting back.

Not taking my anti convulsant pills.
