Irrational Fears!

#1
I have just discovered the official name for my fear of dwarfs is nanophobia!


At the age of 27 I can't even watch Charlie & the Chocolate Factory cos of those ferkin oompa loompa's and if I see one in the street I have to cross the road. I don't know what caused this fear but I have lived with it since a child.

My boss however, thinks its fcukin hilarious! 8O

Do any of the ARRSE members suffer from a ridiculous fear of anything?

Definitely clowns. I like the idea of being afraid of wooden puppets. I also used to hate going anywhere near people with really severe mental and physical disabilities. The appearance of Joey Deacon on Blue Peter was my cue to hide behind the sofa and 'want to wee'.

Women with lots of make-up used to scare me, I think they were what I imagined witches to look like.

Quadrapleigics too, it's a terrible thing to admit, but I was young and I couldn't work out how their chairs moved and the way they looked at me side on with their head on their shoulders freaked me right out. I'm sorry, I really am. I thought they were just lying and could pop out of their chairs and "get" me at any time.

There is a simple therapy for people who are scared of quadriplegics. Find one, take a deep breath and then tip him or her out of their chair and wait to see what happens. You'll soon realise that they can't actually hurt you, however frightening they look.

Officers with maps, pure dread washes over me.

Little bits of metal frighten me, so much so that they've even made me move at times

Joey Deacon was a poor unfortunate who was wheeled out by those do-gooders at Blue Peter when they wanted to make us kids feel guilty about life in general. Mr Deacon came with his own interpreter, the equally disturbed 'Pete', who could convert the (utterly frightening) noises that Joey made into reasonable coherent English.

The homes of old people, as opposed to "Old peoples homes". All that flowery wallpaper, curtains, carpets et al. Uhh, it makes my skin crawl.

Enormously fat women who insist on wearing thongs at the beach and having their little lap dog of a hubby rub tanning oil into the folds...

Im a 24 year old perfectly happy,healthy sane female. Yet almost every night since i was around 12 i have had nightmares about zombies. Scare seven shades of shitt out of me. Woke up other night asking for the better half to cuddle me because i was convinced there was one on the way up the stairs to get me, shivering at just the thought right now!.
Better half thinks its hilarious, i reckon it could happen, if they can put man on the moon..... 8O :? :( [/code]
