Good on you!
When I was in high school, some 15 or so years ago, I rode a school bus home with a kid that was always picking on an autistic boy (very small, meek,
"nerdy"...ripe for the pickin' in a bully's eyes)....The autistic kid was friends with my younger brother. His parents came to me because the bully
picking on him was my age and I knew him. They asked me to see if I could stop this behavior because it was causing horrible stress on their child
So, one day this is going on...I'm sitting right behind it, watching it all go down. Picking, smacking, talking down to....the whole bit.
I tell him, "knock it off"....he ignores me. I tell him again...again he ignores me. It was cold that day, the autistic boy was trying to get his
window up and the bully was attempting to slam his arm in the window and then would put the window back down on him. I got fed up and b#tch smacked
the bully up side the head.
....he goes into this tirade about going home and getting a gun and coming to my house to kill me. At this point we are just leaving school grounds
and I know that if I jump him...bus stops and I'm in the office. I say, "ok boy...I got you....before you get off this bus, I am going to stomp your
ass".....I sit, we ride 15 or so minutes....I'm talking smack the entire way...right in his ear. His bus stop comes up....I stand up with him and
told him to turn and fight me...he refused until I put my fist into the side of his head the first time and then he attempted to fight. He had one
problem, he was a bully and they don't do well against those that stand up for themselves.
Long story short....the bus driver was a substitute that day...little old lady. She didn't like this bully kid. She didn't even attempt to stop me.
I held that kid down in a bus seat and I beat him bloody. His parents ended up filing charges on me. Luckily, witnesses heard him threaten me...I
was forced to file reverse charges and in the end his family dropped the charges...as did I.
From that day on, I never once witnessed this "bully" pick on anyone.
I don't desire nor seek out conflict....but sadly, this is the real world and sometimes it MUST come to that. It is all some understand. And I am
not even blaming the bully, not fully. His parents (I knew them as well) were absolutely responsible for failing to do their job. He was a product
of his environment, as are most.
Anyways, there is my "I'm a bad ass" story for the day......lol
The point? DETERRENTS work!
