I dunno if a spider is willing to crawl in our mouths while we sleep, a spider is willing to crawl inside ones hair. Not a concern even if one did stay cause hot water and spiders dont mix. Unless it laid eggs of course..then you would have a real problem.

the avg person swllows 7 spiders a yr while sleeping, has 12 spiders crawl in their ear while sleeping, is never more than 2 feet from a spider at all times, has thousands of spiders living in their home. I was a horrible archniphobe until i learned these facts and strangly they have helped me to somewhat (not fully) shake my fear of them....

Dude, spiders don't even crawl into your mouth. If you google it, you'll find out it's a stupid misnomer/urban legend. How can spiders be that dumb to just crawl into an open hole and get swallowed? They're pretty intelligent. I mean, look at how complex their webs are!! And honestly, there are no set numbers on how many people "eat" them. It always varies. And who even made up that statistic? Who watched all those people for months at a time all night? It makes no sense...can't be legitimate.

But no, I have never ever heard of this problem before. I'm not afraid of them, but I certainly wouldn't worry about it. Sounds like someone was just trying to fuck with you,

I don't really care or worry about it either, don't really see it as much to fret over. However I have heard one story of a black fellow that I think was a homeless guy, that supposedly got sick and went to a hospital where they done blood tests and it showed up that he had black widow venom in his body but didn't have any visible bites. Dude supposedly had lots of dreads and really thick matted hair in general, so they cut into the guys hair just to see and he apparently had a black widows nest in his hair which he died from... :/ prrrrrrobubly bullshit, but just figured id share :)
