Worst was when I pushed a running lawnmower over a bare patch of earth that contained a yellow jacket nest.

Took awhile for my brain to register the consequences, i.e. "why all of a sudden are hot needles being driven into my thighs?"

Once I got back into the car I pulled up my shorts and watched one sting, then walk a little bit on my skin, then sting again...took lots of Benadryl that day...

Laughing - I can relate as the same thing happened to me. I went running across the yard trying and get away from them and they just kept coming. I ended up rolling around on the lawn trying to "put the fire out". Neighbors must have thought I'd finally lost all my few remaining marbles.

Once while working on a survey crew up in the mountains, I walked over a wasp nest and got stung on my hand which swelled up like a mickey mouse cartoon hand.

A coworker went into a kind of shock and had to lie down for several minutes. I didn't know wasps could do so much damage.

Yikes ! Glad you are okay !
I had an allergic reaction to a Yellowjacket sting at work some years ago. One nice ambulance ride and a shot of epi and I was fine. I used to keep an injection kit (pre $$ epipen thing). I ignored it, let it expire. Then was nailed by a bunch of yellowjackets when I ran over their nest with the mower.

I was fine. I guess the allergy was a temporary thing.

That night I went back with a propane torch and burned those little bastiches out.

The next night a skunk dug up the whole nest and had a snack of roasted wasp.

Yikes, I would be in trouble.

Last time I got stung it was by one that crawled into my glove and got me on the wrist. Swole up pretty good.

My wife peed on a hornets nest once. She didn't know they nested in the ground. She was very tender in some very sensitive places for a few days.

I had a similar hornet lawnmower experience, except that I won. I realized what I'd done at the last second and pulled the lawnmower back over the opening. A slurry of ex-hornets shot out the side of the mower...

This is a close second to the story a co-worker told me about a mishap his wife has on a rope swing....

In the library with a candlestick; and the butler helped.

Wow!

What would have happened if your co-worker had been stung?!

(Yes, I know.)

I've never been stung by a wasp or a yellow jacket and am very careful not to.

As a kid, I was stung by a honey bee and my hand swelled up like a baseball glove.

There were no other symptoms, so it was a very localized reaction.

In the service, I was stung by mosquitos and my face swell up like the Elephant Man losing 15 rounds to Ali.

So yes, I try to be extremely careful around anything that stings.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
