Nope, thank God! Bees scare the heck out of me, and I try to avoid them at all costs!

Bee stings, anyone?  I remember going horseback riding and my horse got stung on its rump.  It wasn't happy and went up on its hind legs, thus tossing me to the ground.  I also got stung.  Not a fun day.
Yeah that really hurts by something so small,lol !!!!!! :peace:

No I would say that is not a fun day.  But, I remember being stung by a bee when exiting my car.  The bee stung my hand and I immediately swelled up and had to run into the nearest drug store to get an antihistamine to take before it went any further.  Now, that was no fun!!!!

Ouch!  I was stung in the middle of my arm by one of those huge fuzzy bumble bees when I was ten years old.  The infection took an entire week to extract! Since I have grown older I am somewhat impervious to the pain caused by the occasional bee sting...more of an annoyance than anything. I was with a corporate vice president three weeks ago and, while driving, a bee flew up her skirt.  The VP freaked out and was screaming for help but I was powerless...what could I do? I couldn't go up her skirt without creating more trouble!  She ended up getting stung and was a little bit angry at me for not helping out but ended up understanding in the long run.

The only time I've been stung was in a Christian get-away camp. But I'm not sure if they were mosquito or bee stings.  :dontknow:

I remember a wasp sting when I was a child playing in the yard on a cold day.  Somehow a yellow-jacket got into my coat sleeve unknown to me until it stung me and flew out.  Of course, I screamed.  I'll never forget the strange look the mailman gave me, as he did not see the wasp and no one else was around me.

I am highly allergic to bees, especially yellowjackets.
Have a wonderful day!

Yes, once in my life...I was 9 years old and just got out of the kiddie pool. I went to go in the house when I stepped on a bee that was laying on the porch. I was totally shocked and caught off guard because I wasn't expecting it to be there.  (What was a bee doing there on the porch?)...And no it wasn't one of those Yellow Jacket wasps that you'll find flying around food and drink outside. It was a Honey Bee. Most people don't even know the difference between the two, like my 4th grade teacher, but that's another story. Anyway, my older sister got the stinger out with a needle and tweezers. From what I remember, it hurt like crap and yes I cried...I still love and respect those fuzzy little critters. They are crucial to our world and I drink their tasty vomit every other day with my tea. LOL...

Bzzzzzzz......

When I was 7 yrs old we were giving my dog a bath in the kiddie-pool in the backyard. I sat down on an over-turned 5 gallon bucket...turned out a bee had also decided to sit down there.

I was stung in the butt and jumped up immediately and started running around in pain.  :confused1:

My dog got overexcited and jumped out of the kiddie-pool, splashing soapy water all over me and my stepdad. Then my mom came out and insisted I put lemon juice on the sting because supposedly that helps...I resisted, but I was only 7 so didn't have much say in the situation.

I was never stung by a bee. Actually it was much worse than that. I was stung twice in the face by a wasp. I was at my cousin's apartment and talking to him outside his window when I heard a loud buzzing sound and felt a terrible pain in my face. I backed away and saw a nest in the corner of the window. I felt terrible from the pain and shock. Wasps have retractable stingers which means they can sting you as much as they want and not die unlike a bee. I was a child when that happened and to this day I have a terrible phobia of anything that flies and stings. Any kind of bee, wasp, dragonfly anything. It was a terrible experience and I'm thankful I haven't been stung since. However I wish I could get the fear out of my mind though. Every time I even see a bee, or wasp or anything it bothers me.
