I doubt bullies give a crap, generally speaking.

@Lustig Andrei,
I also agree that bullies don't care; but thanks anyway for posting this, L.A. Some people need to be reminded. Not edgar. He already knows. He's a good guy. No, I'm referring to -- well, never mind.

@Lustig Andrei,
Isn't this post a form of bullying (I mean the re-post if you have a heart thing)?

I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago.

When I was in the 8th grade we had a bully, he bullied everyone. One day we had to stand inline before going into class, he was standing behind me and kept bumping into me on purpose, pushing me. I was in a grumpy mood, turned around and punched him in the mouth, not hard but hard enough that I broke his jaw. He cried like a baby, blood was everywhere, my parents had to pay the medical bills and boy did I get in trouble.

Nobody ever picked on me after that, all the way through high school. Cool

@Sloan,
I don't believe we've been properly introduced. What's your beef?

By the way, thanks for letting me know you're the one. Smile Now that I know better, I'll just keep my mouth shut when you do it again. Wink

@jcboy,
absolutely, jc. What people don't realize is that the only way to handle a bully is to stand up to him right away. He will back down every time. Bullies are cowards; that's what makes them bully anyone they think is weaker than themselves.

@Lustig Andrei,
I learned very early in elementary school, because I wore glasses from an early age, and other kids picked on me. I fought them all, because once your're willing to get into fights with attendant bloody noses, they quit picking on me.
My report card stated that I fought too much, while my older brother's report card had the American flag.

@Lustig Andrei,
I have backed down a few bullies. But, when I was in the eighth grade, a boy two years older than me sat in the desk in front of me. I had never even looked at him before, that I recall, but one day he started the bullying thing. It went on for about a week. I told a teacher, but nothing came of it. One day, I accosted him on the sidewalk, fists doubled, offering to slug it out. He was so much bigger than me that he just made a joke of it and dodged my hands to slap my head. He continued to pick the rest of the school year. After summer, I saw him one more time. At the high school. He had quit school and he rode up on a motorcycle to talk to somebody through the chain link fence. I saw that I had gotten bigger than him over the summer. But I never saw him again. The point of my story being, they don't all turn out the same, even when you do fight back.

@edgarblythe,
Yeah, it's not always even necessary to win. Some bigger and older kid started picking on me when I was in the 9th grade (I think). Eventually, he called me out one Friday night during a school football game. I showed up and got a black eye for my trouble. I guess he had a scratch, too, but it wasn't even close. Anyway, he never bothered me again. Sometimes, just standing up for yourself is enough. Bullies don't like real resistance. They prefer to operate by terrorizing.

Don't talk bloody nonsense. What are the consequences of not re-posting? Nothing at all. This is another example of your moral ambivalence, in that you think that putting a (minuscule amount) of pressure on someone to post something is exactly the same as robbing someone for their dinner money, pushing them down the stairs, constantly taunting them, sending them to Coventry etc. etc. It's your passive aggressive way of telling the rest of us what a superior person you are, but no one's buying it.

Unfortunately that's the only thing that works. My daughter was being bullied and the school's efforts to stop it were lamentable. I showed her how to throw a punch, and she smashed her bully's head into the wall, then she lost the plot. It took two teachers to drag her off him, and he was sent to hospital with concussion.

I only found out about it because she told me, clearly the school thought he had it coming, and she'd never been in trouble like that before. No medical bills over here, and when she told me I gave her a beer.
