A lot of folks don’t like spiders but I’ve never had any real run-ins with them, and my feelings toward the eight-legged critters are more or less neutral.
If they leave me alone, I’ll leave them alone.

The old Ozarks hillmen had a few beliefs about spiders, recorded by the famous folklorist Vance Randolph.
