There's no need to get mad. Most people do not contemplate their absolute worst fear. They are merely quoting a fear. Quoting deep worst fears requires a very morbid imagination, or else someone to ask specifically to invoke thought. And no matter what, someone could come up with something worse with a little more thought.
For example, I could say that my worst fear is being slowly flayed alive while being anally raped and observing the same thing happening to my family and many innocents, but I can guarentee to you that if someone put a little more thought than I did, they could come up with something infinitely worse.
