You've heard this about postal workers: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." But you'd better keep your walkway clear of spiderwebs if you want your mail delivered!
Apparently one London postal worker suffers from arachnophobia. He refused to deliver mail to one home on his route because a supposedly "massive" spiderweb was in the way. The homeowner said the spider was the size of a small coin, but it was big enough to scare away the postman! So... bring on the weather, but keep away the bugs and spiders!
