Hey choppers , a little story...Funny...but, not so funny!
Here goes...I'll start at the beginning with getting a hair cut by a client who bleached my hair. Turned out kind of yellow. Anyway, I work part time with a bunch of redneck roofers. I sell residential roofing for these guys. Needless to say i got harassed about the new hairstyle.
Next day outside the shop, it was hot and I had a hat on. Took it off to wipe my brow. The gif shows you what happened next.
The wasp stung me twice on top of my head before I could get the hat off. Guys were rolling with laughter when I went flailing to kill the damn wasp. Somebody yelled out I deserved it for walking around like a giant sunflower.
Yeah it hurt. After a few minutes it started to burn.
Me? I'm in great shape, have no allergies, been stung by bees, wasps, yellow-jackets and never get sick. I'm kinda tough and am a formidable fellow at 6 ft tall 195 lbs. but...
I GOT MY ASS KICKED BY A 1/16 OZ WASP!!
In five more minutes I got really dizzy and had to sit down. I then felt my body temperature go way up, got very sweaty and more dizzy. I actually dialed 911 and had my thumb on the send button just in case.
It took about ten minutes to feel somewhat stable again. It took another hour and a half to totally stop the nervous shaking and feel completely normal.
You can bet that won't ever happen again!!
