No matter how well packaged any food you order is, you might need to check it out first before putting it in your mouth.
A woman in Australia learnt this after she bought a gingerbread house. She probably wasn’t expecting to find a giant spider with eggs inside. Katie Gompertz lived through every arachnophobe’s worst nightmare when she did.
Ms Gompertz, of Sydney, had bought the gingerbread house from Australian supermarket chain Woolworths, according to Fox News. She was thinking of opening it up to have it with a cup of tea when she noticed that a massive huntsman spider had taken up residence inside the packaging.
“I have a cup of tea before I go to bed about,” Ms Gompertz told nine.com.au. “I looked over at my gingerbread house that was sitting on the microwave, and I wondered if I could sneak a bit without the kids. I saw this leg almost walking down the outside.
“At first I thought it was a trick of the night. Then I thought, ‘oh my god, it’s a huntsman.'”
She posted pictures of the unpleasant surprise on Facebook this Monday and they have been buzzing the internet since then.
