Speaking of our younger years. Did your school ever have a school bully, or were you ever bullied by anyone?
I was bullied by one girl imparticular, Angel. She was the devil.
Every year I dreaded going to school b/c every year she would beat me up, and I never fought back. I had a restraining order on her in highschool...it was that bad.
I remembered the one time I said screw it all and actually went to fight her, a teacher intervened and I was suspended from school. It hardly seemed fair. Then she was transferred to another school.
I wish I could go back in time for a rematch. I would kick her ass. I always knew I could kick her ass, but I was too much of a scaredycat.
If my kids are bullied, I am going to teach them to stick up for themselves. And if my kid bullies...I will make them volonteer in an elderly home or something to teach them how to be humble.
The one time I fought a girl I got suspended for 5 days from school. Nevermind she hit me first, she only got 2 days b/c she got beat up really bad. Nevermind I was only defending myself, my mother made me volonteer a couple weekends at a church repainting the children's bookshelves and for the week I was suspended from school I had to volonteer my time to the wildlife sancuary. I had to replant the garden and got scared shitless by a snake crawling across my foot, and to top off my wonderful week sweating my ass of, I got to clean out the Eagle cage. Do you know how much an Eagle shits? Not to mention how hard it is to clean it off a wire cage the size of a garden shed?
It doesn't pay to be a bully, but I am sure not going to let my kid be bullied.... no way.
