Ray, that is funny. Since becoming a bee keeper I have to make a conscious effort NOT to swat at anything I feel on my skin. It is a little freaky though when the bees start licking your skin.
I don't mind them on my arm or even on top of my head but when they go for the face or ears they get handled pretty quickly. Been stung there to many times, don't like it much. Ears get pretty puffy and itch like crazy. Those confrontations usually happen when I weed eat in front of the hives.
