Oh Donna I have to agree I hate slugs!!!!! I also hate leeches!!!! I have a hard time swimming in lakes and rivers because of them. I grew up on the ocean so never worried about them!!!

Spitting is anouther thing I just can't stand my neighbor gets up every morning and all you can hear from the bedroom is him spitting as he steps outside and it's one of those loud throat type ones!!!! YEWWWW!!

Maggots get to me too!!!

The sight of someone else 'throwing up' usually makes me sick too.

One other thing that really grosses me out.... I have thought about becoming a hair stylist but the thought of touching a strangers wet hair and head just makes me ill. I have no problem with cutting my kids or DH's hair....I used to cut my sister's hair all of the time too but a stranger's hair....NO WAY!!

I really dont know how ( or why) they do it on Fear Factor! I cant even watch the show. YUCK!

Well the thing that gets to me the most is also what bugs a couple of you as read it in the posts. MAGGOTS, yuck can not stand them and try to keep our huge garbage can cleaned so none will show up and put all garbage in those green bags. Not crazy about slugs wither but they don't bother me as bad as ROACHES and thank God we don't have them. Slugs sometimes out in the flower area but not often.
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

Saliva. Whether it's the nasty throat gurgling kind or a quick spew on the sidewalk, it gets my gag reflex going. A little boy spit on my son (both about 6 years old) and I about chewed his head off. I don't care if his momma would've come over and said something. I would've chewed her out, too.

What really grosses me out is those little icky sticky green tree frogs. I know some people find them cute and endearing but I really am not a big fan of any kind of frog, lizard, roach, snake etc. But the frogs creep me out the most. I scream like a banshee if one is near me. Which has made for some humorous times...

Uhg Rodents and bugs of any kind in the kitchen and food prep areas.

Maggots anywhere even on Television. I feel sick when I see them or hear them being mentioned somewhere.

And the worst of the worst

Mucousssy stuff weather from the nose or throat. I can't stand listening to someone blow their nose - especially when I am eating. UUUUGGGGGG.

I can't stand to hear, smell or see someone vomiting or I will be right next to them doing the same thing. I also can't stand bugs or snakes or needles. Needles make me woozy and almost pass out (meaning hypodermic needles)
