death of the bumblebee

I just watched a bumblebee or some kinds of bee writhing to death in the hallway while the maintenance man looked on like, "hmmm..." I thought of stepping on it to get it out of its misery but I couldn't bring myself to do it. And I'm allergic to bees but I don't want them to die painful deaths under horrid flourescent lighting on clinical tile floors. Nay! I say.
