I'll tell you OK, but you cannot tell ANYONE because they might use it against me in nefarious and cruel ways
Bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets etc.
Not only the fact that they can sting you do they scare me, EVERYTHING about them makes me want to run for my life! I'm not even allergic (as far as
I know) as I've always been able and fortunate to run away quick enough to avoid being stung.
I hate they way they move: Slowly, quickly, sporadically and unpredictably.
I hate their colors: When I see their black and yellow coats I CRINGE.
I hate the way they sound: If I hear buzzing anywhere in my vicinity my eyes instantly pop open and I immediately go on alert and stray away from
wherever perceive the sound to be emitting from. If there's one outside and I'm by a building I'll stay inside with my face pressed up near a
door/window until it's gone so I can safely come back outside.
I hate their homes: Not only bees, but their nests also equally terrify me. I won't go near one, even if it's known and proven to be a vacant one.
I'll view it from a distance but even then it makes my stomach turn. When I see one, I vividly imagine it's elaborate internal structure as well as
it's outer, in all it's leaf-like delicacy falling down from wherever it's hanging, and it somehow breaking open and it's contents swarming all
I'll compulsively spring up from wherever I'm sitting or standing in a split second if someone even presents to me " one shred" of empty beehive
as a prank (people have done it before). It's not funny at all so don't do it! You'll never see me bolt so fast!
I love summer, but the presence of bees is one aspect of it that I dread. A few years back I pulled into a car dealership and one managed to find
it's way into my car, I flipped out, accidentally forgot to put the car in park before I sprung the door open in a desperate attempt to flee, the car
started rolling forward and I knew I had to get back in quick and face my fear of being trapped in an isolated steel and plastic container with one of
those devils so I could throw the break on and successfully put it in park with it STILL actively swarming around aimlessly in there! It was
horrible!! Can't do much about them flying into the car when I'm driving, except now I consciously close all my windows when I'm driving passed
areas that have a lot of trees, plants, and especially flowering trees where I believe the chances are greater that they will lingering around to find
their way in.
My procedure, if one still somehow manages to fly into my car: I pull over as quick as I can, (and hopefully safely and not in the middle of oncoming
traffic) immediately vacate the car, after I put it in park of course
open only one or two of the doors (not three or four because then it will
take more time to shut them all after it leaves and in so doing it might be able to get back in right away right after exiting) and right when I see
it fly out I shut all the doors and windows right away so it can't re enter. OR, if I don't witness it flying out, I listen to see if it's in
there, If I don't hear it or see it anymore, I'll use a shirt or something and inspect the whole car cautiously for a few minutes until I am
satisfied that it's gone and not sitting silently dormant under a seat or any other place I can't see it. ...They've fooled me before doing that,
only to realize after I got back in the car it was still in there and I had to do it all over again!
So now you know. But be nice, and leave the bees out of it!
