Roaches just creep me out for some reason, always have. Most other bugs don't bother me. Centipedes are kind of gross, not sure what I'd do if one of those ended up in my glass. As for the "dirty" aspect that everyone seems most bothered by; I'm one of those people who thinks that a certain amount of exposure to germs is good - keeps your system on its toes and makes you more likely to be able to fight off sicknesses caused by a lot of these germs. I think we've all seen the news specials where they go around a city swabbing various things that we come into contact with frequently, and we realize there's tons of "nasty" stuff all over everything. Unless you're constantly washing your hands, you're going to ingest some pretty disgusting germs. So I figure, what's a few more from the fruit fly going to hurt?
As for food hitting the ground, I subscribe to the 10 second rule...
Poor JC, she's not going to want to share a table at Dino's w/ me now
