A lot of times when you tell people that you are a beekeeper, or when you are working at the Big E with the observation hives, you'll hear this response "I hate bees!" I often reply, "You probably hate wasps.", and then try to explain the difference between the yellow jacket wasp and the honey bee. Most people easily confuse the two.
Club prez, Jeff Rys, just sent me an email link to the video below (Thanks, Prez!) and I think you'll agree with me when I say, "Thank goodness we don't keep yellow jackets!"
