Attack Of The Tomatoes!


Some people have a fear of flying, fear of heights, fear of birds, and for some strange reason I have a fear of clowns. It’s not that I can’t be around them but since I was a kid they have always creeped me out just a little. Like KKYR’s John Williams and many others my wife has a fear of snakes. How about the fear of tomatoes?

Waitress Kayleigh Barker should probably consider a career change. It’s not that she doesn’t like people, or allergic to some of the food she serves. No, Kayleigh has a phobia of tomatoes. She runs at the sight of one, which can be pretty tricky when someone orders a salad. The 22-year-old UK woman says, “If there a tomato on my plate I will not go anywhere near it, I can’t even look at it.” Some people think her phobia is funny, but she swears it’s not. Kayleigh says that one time her boss made her close my eyes. She told Kayleigh she had a present for her and put a tomato her hand. She says she “ran out of the restaurant. I couldn’t work for the rest of the day.” Ironically her fear of tomatoes — called Lycopersicoa phobia — doesn’t extend to ketchup — as she loves the stuff.

What’s your bizarre phobia?
