Bloke says his life has been ruined by his phobia of people jiggling their feet


A DESPERATE man says his extreme phobia of people jiggling their feet is ruining his life.

Adam Tiano, 30, cannot remember a time when he was not terrified by the sight.

As a child he would run to his room to avoid seeing his mum or dad tapping their feet — but his bizarre fear has got worse.

He is unable to watch a football match and avoids public transport.

And the office where he works as a property manager had to be rearranged so a foot-tapping colleague was out of his eyeline.

Adam of Tottenham, North London, said the sight of it makes him feel anxious and sweaty.

He said: “I feel pure anger when I see somebody shaking their legs. I sit there thinking that I want to chop their feet off.”

Phobia expert Lauren Rosenberg said Adam may have had a traumatic event where someone was jiggling their legs.

She added: “The subconscious mind has associated that movement with danger.”
