Buzz·Posted on Mar 3, 2018People Are Sharing Their Weird Fears On Twitter And I Feel Confused And Seen"I have a crippling fear of Goofy."by Andy GolderBuzzFeed Staff FacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Comedian Jim Smallman took to Twitter to do what we all do on social media: share our deepest, darkest, most personal fears. Jim Smallman @jimsmallman WEIRD FEARS Let’s share ours. Mine: hotel corridors with hanging light fittings. As a kid saw a tv show about poltergeists where they showed a corridor with lights swinging by themselves. In any similar corridor now, I run out of terror. 10:39 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite His tweets about weird, random fears he had growing up — and still has — inspired others to share theirs. Jim Smallman @jimsmallman ALSO In the first house I remember living in, my parents had a painting of a woman playing the lute. I frequently had nightmares about that painting. I swear the eyes followed me. 10:43 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Those fears included... Surprise food fillings. Vix Meldrew @VixMeldrew @jimsmallman Surprise centres in food. Jam donuts can gtfo. 10:58 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Red — specifically red — ice cream vans. Kerrie Sakura🦊🌈🦄 @likecrazypaving @jimsmallman I've grown out of it now, but when I was a kid I was terrified of red ice cream vans. Only red ones. Absolute nonsense. 10:51 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Bath drains. Shannon Swezey @wrasslesassle @jimsmallman As a kid, my grandma always used to tell me that if I stayed in the bath as it drained, my soul would get sucked through along with the water. Still wary over it. 😬 05:26 AM - 03 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Goofy, of Disney fame. theo jones 🌈 @Bejiones99 @jimsmallman I have a crippling fear of goofy the dog. Cant explain it, have had recurring nightmares over it and was so scared when seeing a costume in disneyland paris that I had to calm down for like 30 minutes. 10:41 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Open closets (same, tbh). Wendy @WendyFNP @jimsmallman Can't sleep with the closet door open. Logically, I know there's nothing in there. I also don't want to wake up at 3 am and see glowing eyeballs 11:20 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite The sudden disappearance of gravity. Claire Stephenson @TinyScaryClaire @jimsmallman Falling into the sky as I lie on my back looking at the stars. I get this horrible feeling that I'm about to fall down into space. 12:56 AM - 03 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Eggs. Hollie @holliecopas @jimsmallman Also, eggs is my ‘weird’ fear. The look, the feel of the shell, the smell... and if you think about what it REALLY is too 😪 I can’t touch them, let alone eat them 08:29 AM - 03 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite And, um, being stabbed in the back by Uma Thurman with a machete while trapped in an elevator. Max Olesker @maxolesker @jimsmallman Throughout my childhood, for some as-yet-unearthed-by-therapy reason, my phobia was specifically this; being trapped in a lift. And then stabbed in the back with a machete. By Uma Thurman. I cannot emphasise how terrified this scenario made me feel. 10:44 PM - 02 Mar 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite As for me, it's all about scary mirrors.
