I ran over a nest with a lawnmower once.  I got stung five times and unfortunately was wearing shorts at the time.

Growing up getting stung wasn't a big deal, but in 2000 I got stung by fire ants 13 times in an incident, had a mild general reaction (itchy palms, lips swelling) and ever since I've been much more sensitive to yellow jacket stings.  I get a lot of swelling now no matter where stung.  This last one got me a few inches above the knee on the inner thigh, had a rash about 10' long and a lot of swelling and pain.  Took 3 days to stop bothering me.
