Yes. That and the sore nose really does mean that you're too short and skinny to be standing around on curbs where people park their cars.

A metallic taste in the mouth is sometimes a symptom of pregnancy; maybe that's what this person is talking about.

Where I live this is a problem. But only until all of the ripe ones are gone. Personally, I removed all of the Dog Trees (Dogwoods?) in my front yard to avoid this. The worst part was always the neighbor's kids climbing my fence to pick the dogs, and getting upset when the Blooming Rat Tree blossums chewed through their shorts.
