I’ve never been stung by a bee but have by a wasp a fair few times. I’ve always found they hurt, something quick and sharp, then they ache a bit after.
Last time I was stung it was at a picnic in St James Park. I felt something near my arm pit, moved my arm to look and the damn wasp stung me. Then when I tried to swat it away the jerk had the audacity to sting me again!
