phobia of…a vacuum-cleaner?

You are reading correctly, I did discover yesterday I am terrified of my vacuum cleaner. I was vacuuming my bedroom, something got stuck in the vacuum cleaner and I thought it was going to blow up on me. I was scared to vacuum the rest of my room, I freaked every time the thing made a sound. Other than its usual sucking sound of course. However I got over it and was able to clean the rest of my room. Perhaps next time I’ll make sure there aren’t any thumb tacks left lying around before I start vacuuming.

  1. I think I have it too. It takes me FOREVER to get the guts to turn it on, and when I do, I feel all paranoid, kinda. It’s hard to describe. Is it really called Zuigerphobia?

    • I honestly don’t know if thats what it is called but for the longest time I thought it was just me. I know how you feel about being paranoid.

  3. Well jeeze. I want to know the actual term for a vacum phobic. Because m friends chihuahua’s are scared of it so bad and i think it’s funny. So every time I see them get scared I want to call them the term of a vacume phobic. So some one should find it and post it?

  6. I think i have a phobia of vacuum cleansers too. I dont know what it is called though. I always have a feeling that they are going to suck my toes off.

  7. My mom was vacuuming and I started to freak out =/
    Not fun. I almost started crying
    I also found out that toddlers are scaried of vacuums =/

  8. So… would this be considered vacuaphobia? Vacuuphobia? Oooh… I like this one… vacuatergeophobia (I made that up by adding the Latin word for “clean” as in “to wipe off”) Haha. Good story… and do be sure to look out for those thumb tacks.

What did you think? I'd love to hear from you!
