Turns out everything is terrible and completely frightening to some. Phobias are something we both laugh and frown upon. But imagine if you had a friend with one that could affect your entire summer? Fear of water, dust, birds, the sun? These are all real life phobias. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you come face to face with someone with one of these fears.

Either way, these people just may ruin your summer fun and vacation plans. So find out early enough to know when to leave them at home. Unless, of course, their phobia is a fear of being at home.
