Yellow jacket whack-it

We were finishing up lunch with two friends and their children today when we noticed a yellow jacket flying close to my 1 year old son.  We were all a bit nervous watching it fly around the kids so I decided I should do something about it.  It landed on a chair nearby and I couldn't find anything to swat at it.  So I took off my shoe and whacked it.  I maimed it enough that I think it must have died (although we couldn't find it), and we gathered our belongings and left the restaurant.
Outside, my friend told me she overheard the family behind us commenting that they thought I was taking my shoe off to spank my son!  Really, do people do that?  If so, maybe they deserve my award -
Mom of the year ...
