Want to spread this story as much as possible.
To start, my wife is terrified of balloons.
We were in a petrol station / eatery place near the south of France on my way to visit some family, my wife is looking at the sandwich's..
All of a sudden she notices a child stood by her, must of been around 3/4 years old... With a balloon...
I hear my wife go "Oh my god, a balloon!" and starts speed walking.. For some reason, i've no idea why... This French child decided to chase her lol, my wife pegging it around the petrol station away from this deranged balloon welding 3 year old. Went on for a good 5 minutes.
All the while i'm literally on the floor in hysterics.
I've seen some funny stuff in my life, but that is at least in the top 3.
Anyone else got any funny phobia based stories?
