They Jump !
I have a very similar story to the little drama shown below. Only it was my husband who was going to save me from a very big wolf spider that had been on the wall all evening. My husband worked swing shift at the time and I watched and checked on that spider all night just waiting for my husband to come home and get rid of it. I would not attempt this myself because you know, spiders can see you with all those eyes, I know this because I have watched their eyes follow me, and there is this--spiders jump! Well, my brave husband came home and I showed him the spider I had been observing all night. My husband laughed at me for being so silly and not taking care of this myself. Then he got a container to take care of it, climbed onto the couch to reach it and IT JUMPED RIGHT AT HIM! I did not know my husband could scream like that. In fact I have never heard him scream like that before or since. The spider scrambled under the sofa where my husband decided it could be left alone....and I never did know where that spider went but you can bet I did not sit on the sofa for quite awhile and for sure did not allow my naked feet to hang below the cushions. A spider like that could easily be waiting for a tasty chunk of foot or toe.
