Ms Demi's tweet has collected quite a few reactions on Twitter.
"I hope you gave him a nice tip for going above and beyond their duty!" wonders one Twitter user. "That's literally the best idea I've ever seen," says another.
"I once asked the mailman to get a spider for me and a neighbour that I barely knew. They both did it for me but that's when I realised I need to do something about this. I'd rather have a stranger in the house than face a spider... not okay," says one comment. "Genius idea. As one also terrified of spiders, I understand this quite well. I hope he knows how much this meant. May we all be lucky enough to find a Joe when we need one," says another. Click for more trending news
