Closed shower curtains (and the murderer waiting on other side)
You walk into the bathroom and instantly feel the need to check....just in case.
Flushing airplane toilets
People get sucked in...IT HAPPENS.
Falling down that space in a spiral staircase
It may not be probable, but just the thought is enough to make your stomach hurt.
Long underground tunnels
It will end soon....I know it will.
Walking over sidewalk grates and cellar doors
Who checks those things for safety? And unfortunately, it does happen
Driving over bridges
Focus on the end goal, it will be okay.
Every single species of bird
Fluttery and shifty animals are not to be trusted, Hitchcock taught us well.
Becoming convinced there is someone in the trunk of your car
Blast music and check your rear-view every five minutes.
Touching dryer lint
Out of all the weird things you have to touch in your life, we could all do without this strange substance.
Swimming in dark water
Sharks,man. So what if this is a land-locked lake, it could still happen.
Elevators in general
Not to mention how much worse this feeling is in a overly crowded elevator. Deep Breaths.
Driving under a height limit bar.
Even if you know you will make it...what if you dont?
Open closet doors
The smaller the space of the opening, the more fear it instills in your heart.

Check every time, all because of that ONE time.
So fragile, so loud, so scary.
Believing your arm will never regain feeling after it goes numb
Why is it taking so long.... it shouldn't be taking this long right?
Or that the novocain will NEVER wear off
The dentist said an hour or two...but you are starting to get freaked out. Plus you want to eat that sandwich.
Driving behind one of these bad boys
One too many action movies perhaps.
Getting a charley horse the second you step off the treadmill
Even if you ate a banana that day.
The possibility of a friend from the sewer ending up in your toilet
Thankfully, extremely unlikely.
Consuming expired food
Even if it's just a day over, that's one day too many for you.
Doing things like this
It's not the height that worries you, it's the single pane of glass you don't trust.
