...when you come across a fly that is dying?


I don't know why, because I've swatted more than my fair share of flies living in a rural house for most of my life, but whenever I come across a fly that is dying for some reason that I had nothing to do with I kinda get a little bit sad

Poll incoming

I remember once, whacking a fly. angry, annoyed. had been buzzing round and landing on things for a while.

It dropped. but continued to buzz pathetically on the floor, barely able to move, but trying to.
and i felt bad.

acted quickly, and put it out of its misery.
but still felt bad.

I laugh at it's pain as i slowly press down on it's body, watching it flail around, desperately trying to escape.
ayy lmao

there was this little fly type thing, tiny, on the windowsill of the bus I was on
it kept jumping at the window, thinking it would be able to get through
it obviously wasn't able to fly
I tried to get it on my finger so I could carry it outside as I approached my stop
but I dropped it, and it likely died

totally worth it for turtle sustenance



But I probably should have voted the first option cause some nights I think, what if I were a fly? I would be scared of people swatting at me and shooing me away since all I want to do is eat their food or trash. Then I get really sad when I think about flies or bugs who get caught in a spider web and then get sucked to death by the spider, like it would really hurt for my insides to melt while I'm wrapped in a web with nowhere to run and just be a burrito for the spider. I don't want to be a fly.

I was the type of kid who would pull wings and legs off of flies. Only once did I manage to pull all the wings and legs off the fly before it died. After that I got bored and washed it down the drain of the sink.
#10
I've never actually caught a fly dying. Don't get a whole lot.

I do feel bad for harmless ants. Sometimes. Only if those little dicks deserve it.

No pity for cockroaches though, and I get plenty of those.
#11
Well I kind of understand bugs coming inside because it's safer than the wild, and there is a storage of food. But why do they keep buzzing around flying into my ear and getting near me. They are basically asking for it, so no I don't feel bad at all.

Tips for flies
Come inside, and stay away from me. You can eat my trash, not my food I'm eating. And stop buzzing around so much for pete's sake.
#12
Not at all I kill them all the time at work. I hate flys. Nothing is more annoying. They down have feelings anyway so why feel bad if they can't even feel?

I really wish they had some common courtesy.

I fucking hate flies.
I grew up on a horse ranch (technically a large boarding stables).
I used to kill those bastards with WD-40 and a lighter.

I used to do that too. Just the wings though.
And then throw them into a spider web.

Its a miracle I didn't burn the ranch down with all the times I did that.

No because flies are shit talkers.

i euthanize them. they're a hard stick but eventually the iv goes in.

yfw flies don't have veins.
#23
ugh I hate flies with a passion. I hate them more than spiders.

Spiders just kind of mind their own business, and they're easy to kill. But flies have to ****ing buzz all over the place and try to land on my food with their nasty ass feet things.

I actually let some less creepy spiders in my house live because I know they'll eat the bastards.
I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life

But I will always find a way to survive

flies, no. because while I don't usually give a shit about them, they have this annoying habit of buzzing all in my view when I'm trying to chill with a movie or a game, so I laugh while they struggle and die on the fly paper I put up. same thing with moths, but with the added annoyance that they like to ruin my expensive wool clothes, though they ignore the cashmere (thankfully)

I legitimately get sad (not full of shit). Not terribly, but sometimes it will effect my mood for a good thirty minutes or so if I'm already sad (and it always makes me a little sad regardless). I go out of my way to not kill anything as much as possible.

Edit: Okay thirty minutes was an exaggeration (unless I violently kill a cockroach in a fit of fear because that brings out my animistic side, sending me into a contemplative mood, not to mention I I just killed something because of my unjustified fears, or that it's a pest. I haven't deliberately killed a bug in years though).

I leave my window open to give it the opportunity to leave before it annoys me enough that I just want to kill it.

You know, for how long humans have been on this earth and how easily we can kill them with a bottle of Raid, you'd think they'd know better than to keep annoying us.

I do feel bad if I see it dying and after I kill one thats annoying the hell outta me.

But if I see a spiderweb near by, I try to toss it into the web for Mr. Spider

Everyone who voted yes is full of shit.

Oh no other people have stronger empathy than you, impossible

I mean I don't see it often but I put them out of their misery when I do. Like if I'm trying to get rid of a bug I gotta kill it, not leave it limping along.

If evolution wasn't just a theory, flies wouldn't be such a nuisance. And would stop flying into windows.
