Your greatest fears


#1

Do you want to know one of my greatest fears?
No? Well stop reading.

It’s when I’m in Waitrose cafe and am ordering my cappa and a cake and it is always busy and I am unsure if I will get a seat at one of the tables in the cafe. This is partly because of ‘seat scavengers’ (as I call them, better ideas welcome) that even if they are behind you in the queue, they send out someone from their group to ‘secure’ a seat ,which is immoral imo.
This makes it very hard to judge whether I will get a seat and bother getting anything, or be forced into some sort of nomadic existence within the store with my coffee (which is actually in a take away cup) and a cake on a paper plate for my child as I try and push a buggy. Quite harrowing, I think you’ll agree.
Sorry if this was upsetting from anyone.

You got any fears?

That sean’ll finally pull the trigger


#3

still just being like this in 10 years


#4

After that OP isn’t it that sean WON’T ever pull the trigger?


#5

I don’t want to see a ghost,
It’s a sight that I fear most
I’d rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news


#6

Get your son to seat scavenge, if he can’t hold on to a table against the masses he doesn’t deserve cake

A million times this. Can’t imagine entering a cafe without saying “tell me what you want and then grab a seat” to my kids.


#8

Just dying. Fully breaks me if I hear about it or think about it too long


#9

Without wishing to sound too morbid I absolutely want this to happen as soon as possible but without hurting anyone which is frankly impossible.


#10

He’s 3!


#11

Not too keen on the idea of life after death


#12

My life circa 2030


#13

The people I despise dying after I do.

On the HoT ToPiC of “Seat Scavengers”

  • Absolutely fine
  • Immoral
  • I don’t know what this is and I am not reading the OP to work it out
  • I can’t even conceive how anyone would have an issue with this

Spiders and social situations with strangers are mine. I won’t be crashing a Tarantula party any time soon.

Glad I gave this thread the benefit of the doubt (assumed it’d be a bunch of prannies moaning about spiders) because I once refused to go into a place where we would have had to order our food then find a table, such was my fear of standing around with a tray full of food and nowhere to sit like an absolute chump. Always, ALWAYS send a scouting party to get a table.


#17

Please note that I hadn’t read your post when I referred to the arachnophobe community as prannies.

It’s a fair cop tbf. I could probably take any spider in a fight if I wasn’t too busy cowering and shitting myself.

Being trapped somewhere and just slowly dying.
