    Accidentally stood on a wasps' nest when I was like 4. Grim times.



    Wasps are just ***** tbh
    I get paranoid when i hear buzzing in the summer, we've had nests twice outside of our house and its frickin scary coz you just see a bunch of wasps crawling up the window or on the floor where you might end up stepping on them :/

    You're lucky. I've been stung many many times. I sat on a bee at the age of six (that wasn't fun), I've been stung on the finger, several times on my feet, my arm and even my stomach once when a wasp must have been asleep in my jumper. It hurts a lot more than you feel it should.

    Got a huge phobia of both. Been stung by a wasp twice. First time aged 3, my Mum dragged me into a grocery store which was suffering from a wasp infestation whilst I was holding a pastry. She had asked me to drop it but being 3 I didn't see why I should. Needless to say it wasn't long before I was stung. Second time aged 23, summer before last, walking down my street, minding my own business and a wasp came and stung me on the finger. That hurt a lot too, my finger was throbbing for most of the day. Then with bees, not been stung myself, but my Dad told me how he got stung by a bee when small- the bee stung him on the eyelids, they fused shut and he was left blind for 6 months!

    I got stung at the back of my head by a bee. It wasn't that painful, just a bit swollen. I never used to be afraid of bees but since I've been stung I have an irrational phobia of them!

    Yeah I'm always a lil paranoid in summer, we keep getting nests in (on?) our shed roof. Child me can confirm stepping on a lot of them is awful, wouldn't recommend

    When I was younger, a bee landed on my head. I picked it up to get it off my head. It stung me. The bee died. It was all quite sad really.

    I've never been stung because...
    a) I'm a hijabi lol what is there to sting :lol:
    and b) I run like HELL when I see any sort of flying insect. Someone mention a daddy long legs and I'd be on the train to some other city far away within 4.5 seconds.

    My brother got stung in the neck once. It wasn't getting off so my Mum had to literally grab a slipper and whack him on the back of his neck and kill it to pull it off of him. Which I mean... is kind of a normal occurence minus the bee in the neck part so that wasn't the worst part. Worst part was he swelled up like Violet Beauregarde (yes I had to double check spelling)when she ate that blueberry pie :lol: it was pretty amazing/ horrifying.

    I've never been stung either, which is a miracle considering how much I overreact when one comes near me.
    I once had one land on my head during a mock exam and it started crawling around my hair and buzzing.
