“My wife told me to take a spider out instead of killing it” (joke)

Some people find spiders in their homes, but don’t like to kill the spiders—preferring to grab a spider and let it go free outside the house. A joke has been printed on many images:

“My wife told me to take a spider out instead of killing it.  We went and had drinks. Cool guy, wants to be a web designer.”

“My girlfriend told me to take a spider out instead of killing it. We went and had some drinks. Cool guy. Wants to be a lawyer” was posted by Matt Fernandez on Twitter on June 27, 2014. The profession of “lawyer” is often changed to “web designer/developer.” “We were asked to take a spider out instead of killing it. We went out for dinner. Cool guy. Wants to be a web designer” was posted on Twitter on October 16, 2015.
