This is a question Irrational Fears

My mate Dan is afraid of turning his back on a flushing toilet. "It'll suck me in", he says. Can you beat him with your own true story of an irrational fear?

No. 1
Friend arranged for a bunch of mates to go to a rugby match, all OK you might say... but no.
One of the group didn't mentioned their irrational fear, not of crowds or bug burly blokes or even bone-crunching violence but, most bizarrely, flags. What with the corner flags and the big Union Jack on the roof of the stand opposite he was a pretty unhappy puppy. Poor bugger spent the whole time gripping on to his girlfriend and had to leave before the end of the match.
Apparently the fear gets worse when the wind gets up and they start flapping about.
Never found out why though.

No 2
Mrs Bob has a phobia of wooden spoons, can't touch 'em, has to use the dishcloth to hold them when cooking. Multiply the fear tenfold when wet...(the spoon, not her).
