Fathima Dawood shared the experience of finding what she thought was a snake in the parking lot while out shopping, and her reaction was hilarious!
Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal – We all have one fear that induces tears, screams and sometimes even full-blown panic attacks. Some of the most common of these fears can be heights, spiders, clowns or snakes.
Fathima Dawood had a moment that left her both paralysed with fear and deeply embarrassed. While out doing some shopping, she encountered one of her biggest fears… a snake!
She immediately panicked and started screaming, scaring a nearby elderly woman half to death. Once her panic has subsided, Fathima got a closer look and realised that her snake was in actual fact, a braid that had come loose from a weave.
She was mortified and quickly snapped a picture before apologising to the elderly woman and bolting inside to hide from the shame of the hilarious encounter. Fathima shared her experience on social media, and South Africans are crying!
“I apologize to the old lady in the parking lot at PnP when I screamed like a baby, thinking I had a snake coming after me. On the other hand, if you lost your braided weave, it is in the far left aisle of the PnP parking lot, unharmed and still in one piece.”
We honestly cried with laughter after hearing her story and can clearly picture the entire ordeal. It inspired us to ask, what is the funniest fright you have ever had? If you have managed to get through life without a fright just yet, what is the typical fear you have? Let us know in the comment section.
