15 Things that Scare Me More than Halloween Ever Will

Halloween, the time of the year when goblins, ghosts, and ghouls come out of the shadows {the storage bins in your neighbor’s basement} and into the light {your neighbor’s front lawn}. Regardless, with the season of Halloween brings the things in life that are supposed to scare us speechless.

Now don’t get me wrong, I scare very easily. All of that typical Halloween stuff? Gets me every time. Don’t even bother trying to watch a scary movie with me, I get scared enough trying to watch Pretty Little Liars by myself at 1 am.

That being said, since I do scare easily, there’s a whole list of things that scare me wayyy more than Halloween ever will such as:

1. Getting lost in the middle of nowhere

I’m already directionally challenged, so the thought of getting lost in the middle of nowhere with no service and a broken down car is ah — not ideal

2. Saying the wrong thing

Political correctness in 2017, amirite?

3. Job. Security.

Just because you have a college degree doesn’t mean you’ll be able to get a job anymore!

4. Getting Scammed

All these Nigerian princes trying to slide into my email. Smh

5. Credit Card Fraud

Did you know that in New York apparently ATM credit card scams are an actual thing? Brb going to go invest all my money in gold and bury it in the ground Ron Swanson-style

6. Having a side effect on some medicine go horribly, horribly wrong

There’s a lot of them

7. Having a side effect of really anything go horribly, horribly wrong

Have you ever read the side effects on a bottle of Selsun Blue shampoo?

8. Forgetting my keys

How to be late to everything in life ever.

9. Losing my keys

That $50 new key fee is no joke, kids

10. Being involved in petty drama

Did I ask to be here?

11. Failing

It’s inherent.

12. Having all my clothing stolen out of a laundry machine

Oh, the joys of college

13. An airline losing my luggage

If I wanted to be stressed on vacation, I would’ve just driven.

14. Getting snatched

I think I’ve watched Scandal too many times. Or Pretty Little Liars. Or both.

15. The whole plethora of other things that we just don’t have time to name on this list

A list longer than a Chinese scroll

Happy Halloween everyone, hope you’re not running into any of these fears today!

    Ha! Very clever. Fun to find you on the Twin Cities Collective thread.

    Oh, you've captured most of my greatest fears beautifully. I'm directionally challenged as well. I can't even figure out which direction to turn when I'm stepping out of an elevator. The struggle is real.
