There are many ways to lose face in the world, and one learns to deal with most of them through the course of a lifetime:

MSNBC reports on an exception:

Woman loses face in encounter with seal
Beast gives seal of disapproval to assistance, bites off South African's nose
Updated: 4:52 p.m. ET Oct. 31, 2005

JOHANNESBURG - A seal bit off a South African woman's nose after she tried to help it back into the sea, an official said Monday.

Elsie van Tonder, 49, is expected to undergo surgery this week after being bitten on a beach near George, about 400 kilometers (240 miles) east of Cape Town on Saturday.

Her nose was found but could not be reattached to her face, local media reported.

I guess the real world -- including seals -- doesn't understand how helpful some people would be, if only you would let them... :D
