(Summer 2003, USA) I hired several laborers to prepare two garden areas for
me. They needed some supplies, so I showed them the location of ice water
and the bathroom, and left to obtain the supplies. Upon my return, I found
an ambulance in front of my home, along with two police cars.
The police informed me that the neighbor had called 911 to report a naked
man screaming and running around the yard next door.
As it turned out, one of the laborers had needed to answer the call of
nature. Rather than use the bathroom, he went into the woods behind our
house, dropped his trousers, and squatted down -- right on top of a huge
nest of hornets.
He was released from the hospital after a week, having learned a very
painful and nearly fatal lesson: always watch where you're going.
