Why is arachnophobia so common?

my fear of spiders has cost me a job, because there were so many things that I couldn’t do and got replaced.

it was my luck that my uncle offered me a new job with him. there is almost never an encounter. but today i took a shower at this job and i used the only towel i had and i started drying off with it, then i see a spider racing down the towel and i didnt even have the balls to kill it, i put on my clothes soak and wet then got the hell outta there!

for the rest of the day today, every piece of dirt or fuzz moving on the ground makes me jump thiking it’s a spider

but why is it so common?

i know they cant hurt me, we have no poisonous ones in my area but we get wolf spiders a lot.
