500 bees enter, 1 man doesn't leave

I'm not allergic to bee stings, but I run like a punk if even one little bastard comes at me. It's why I hate when a nurse says "it just feels like a bee sting" before jabbing a needle into my arm. Well I can't stand fucking bee stings, so that isn't a comforting message to me.
Safety Harbor, Florida -- For the first time, a tree trimmer stung about 500 times by Africanized killer bees on Saturday described the attack.

He was working on a tree in the front yard of a home in Safety Harbor when he cut
through a massive hive.

"This giant swarm just came directly at me. It's like they knew who did it," Ralph St. Peter explained.

I certainly don't like to be stung, but most bee-like critters are not looking for a fight unless you mess with their nest. I try not to freak at the sight of a bee, but the sight of a needle makes me run.

Needles too. I hate those things. Gawd I'm such a puzzy.

Like when you have to have a blood test and they "can't quite see the vein." Geez, people, it's right THERE!! Ick.
