Today, a wasp flew into my car. In my frantic attempt to get away from it, I got pulled over and had to prove I was driving sober. FML

chaoticcupcake tells us more.

To all those asking, I am highly allergic to bees and wasps. When I discovered I was in an enclosed space with it, my mind wasn't thinking "pull over and let it out", but rather panic. When you're scared of something, the mind doesn't always make the most logical decisions. I ended up weaving on and off the shoulder and hadn't realized a cop had his lights on behind me until he sounded his siren. I quickly pulled over and got out of my car. I had to take a breathalyzer and passed, and after explaining my ordeal, the nice man helped me get the wasp out of my car. And to those who say roll the window down: Have you ever successfully tried to get an insect out of a moving vehicle via window? I've tried this on multiple occasions and I either can't get the damned thing to go near the window, or if I do, the wind knocks them back into my car. :/

I initially read that as "flew into my ear". Still makes sense, though...

As you open the window for the cop did the wasp fly out casually like it was never there?

Did anyone remember the movie Tommy Boy when they read this?

Wow, I understand it's scary to have a wasp in your car, but if you're driving dangerously enough for a cop to think you were drunk driving then you completely deserve to get a ticket. It's scary, but putting other people's life in danger so you don't get stung is ridiculous!

the bee could of got him killed...

Wow, I read it as in the ear too until I read the comment and looked again.

Maybe I don't understand how painful it is to be stung by a wasp or anything really since I've never been stung by anything... So maybe my comment was harsh but I still think that driving recklessly enough to get pulled over for "drunk driving" is just over the line , but again maybe my comment was too harsh

Just explain to the officer what happened and take a breathalyzer test to prove your not drunk.

Even walking in a straight line might prove it! Unless that same wasp came back and you swerved on that too..

Yeah. I would recommend to op to walk in a straight line, take a breathalyzer test, and explain the story.

The insect rebellion has begun. ..but seriously, at least you didn't crash or drive into a ditch or a person. Or gotten stung.

given that it was a wasp you're probably safer outside proving your sobriety.

agreed, wasps are the best carpoolers.

It sounds like a Sting Operation if I ever heard one.

The wasps fly into the cars and the police pull them over for erratic driving! Those bastards!

Lol 'Tommy Boy' was the first thing I thought of after reading this FML...

Why try so hard to get away with it? You're probably hurting its feelings! Poor wasp....

Next time you see a wasp, give it a big hug. Tell us how your experience was :)

You attempted to get away from it by driving your car away... whilst the wasp was still IN your car? Are you sure you were as sober as you thought?

OP is a physicist and was relying on some quantum relativistic effect.

I never got why people get so nervous around bees and wasps, if you don't bother them they wont bother you

I just don't want to find if I'm allergic. That's the only reason I get freaked out by them.

Bullshit, 12. Those little ******* are sadistic maniacs. They live off of the pain they inflict on others. The first time I got stung I was volunteering with some children and giving one a piggy-back ride in the grass. Then guess what happens? The little pointy-assed prick stung me. On my foot! He wanted me to drop that kid, I tell you! Long story short, If you see a wasp and have anything less than a nuclear warhead to protect yourself, get the **** out of there.

Plus sometimes something else irritates them and you just get in the way. When I was little, my dog used to chase bees and wasps. I got scared that it would hurt him once and tried to call him away from it. It came after me instead and stung my hand. I still have a scar from that thing.

I was minding my own business when bee flew in sleeve of t shirt. Yes, the armpit area is very sensitive to bee stings. I had to run like maniac through woods (luckily I was alone), tearing off my shirt. Evil f'r was in my belly button, though luckily it had already used stinger in my armpit. I still get Heebie jeebies years later. I don't trust them. Just make my honey biotch....

Finally an opportunity to tell the world about the day I got stung.... So I was casually going to take the trash out because it was "trash day" so I decided to bust a Frodo and go barefoot. ThenIGotStungInTheSolesOfMyFeet the end!
