Oh yes you read that right. I mistook the mase for perfume. I sprayed it all over me and when it burned I started screaming. Okay for all of you that think I am a retard let me tell you the story. I was like 8 maybe 9. My grandmother was in the shower and I went in her room and got her purse out, which she always kept under her bed.(Now I know why she kept it there) So I found what I thought was perfume and sprayed it all over me from head to toe. It was not perfume but mase. Can you imagine my pain?? It was horrible to say the least. SO, have you ever had a simalar experience??

Thanks for having sympathy on me. No, I did not get into my Grandma's purse anymore. I definately learned why it was hidden in the first place. To prevent exactly what happened. It took a few hours of bathing constanly to get it to stop burning. I was young and felt like such a retard. I do not recall getting in trouble for it but then again as bad as the burn was I doubt I would remember a petty spanking. LOL

I used to carry mace with me and one time I thought I would spray it to give it a try and I sprayed it and thought well that's cool and then I went to put it away and I guess my finger got on some of the left over mace that was on the sprayer part without me knowing it I had to rub my eye and I did it with the finger that went across the mace boy did that hurt! It felt like glass spikes where in my eye and it burned so bad whenever I opened my eye it hurt more when I closed it it wasn't so bad. I will never forget that day and that was just a tiny bit of mace I can just imagine if I had sprayed the whole thing in my face.

I covered myself in it and it was AWFUL!!! I can still to this day remember doing that. My grandmother forgot to put her purse up and my sister's baby went to grab it and she said "I better go put that up before we have another episode." Then she started laughing.
