What you have written in the OP makes me wonder if perhaps there is a subconscious memory that that color reminds you of... Perhaps something scared you when you were little that was that color and now it creeps you out when ever you see it?
Aaaaaaaahhhh!!!!!" The mere sight of a snake or spider strikes terror in the hearts of millions of people.
A new study suggests that such fear has been shaped by evolution, stretching back to a time when early mammals had to survive and breed in an environment dominated by reptiles, some of which were deadly....
...The research shows that mammals developed the perceptive ability to focus on things seen as threatening, such as snakes and spiders, and to respond emotionally with a feeling of fear.
To reach their conclusions, Öhman and his colleagues conducted experiments in which their subjects were asked to identify pictures depicting sources of fear (snakes and spiders) from among an array of images that did not induce feelings of fear (mushrooms and flowers), and vice versa.

I think everyone has one or more things that creep them out, things that they have no control over. My brother hates overweight people. I mean, they disturb him past the point of rational annoyance; he seethes with rage at people he considers fat.
And that reminds me that the spider, snake, etc fears that are shared by so many are likely a part of our evolutionary collective unconscious, held over from eons.

When washing my hair in the shower, closing your eyes to avoid shampoo getting in. I sometimes get the irrational fear that when I wash out the shampoo and open my eyes, my entire shower cabin has moved to a completely different dimension.....
I know.....it's weird.
LOL that isn't weird. I am always worried something will be standing there infront of me when I open my eyes.
OP...spiders. They give me the creeps and they always have. No idea why either.
