Bullies come in all shapes and sizes. They don’t always fit a certain description, and one girl found herself with a bully that she just couldn’t shake. The bully wouldn’t stop picking on her, even when something important was about to happen. The best part of this story is that the revenge was completely avoidable…
In elementary school I wasn’t the most popular kid, I was into books, had big glasses, was a bit over weight, got very good grades, classic nerd. I had friends sure, but I did tend to be the butt of the classic “nerdy” & “fat” jokes.
One day in class we were doing some sort of busy work and I was seated across from one of the girls (let’s call her BullyJ) who always loved to make fun of me and give me crap. The girl, for some reason, was stamping her feet up and down on the floor like a crazy person (not just the nervous knee thing that most people get from time to time, full on lifting and dropping them).
The massive shockwaves from her dinosaur stomping ending up knocking her glasses off the desk and somewhere right beneath her feet.
Being the good girl that I was, I immediately yelled out “BullyJ, STOP, WATCH YOUR FEET!”
She stops her foot, a few inches from her glasses, then looks at me and just asks, “Why?”
Now I could have told her that she was about to ruin her glasses, but for some reason I didn’t. I happened to not be wearing my own glasses at the time, and on a lark I told her, “You’re about to step on my glasses.”
The bully got the biggest grin on her face, lifted her foot back up and smashed it back down onto her own glasses.
BullyJ heard them crack and bent down to pick the glasses up, still grinning at me without breaking her gaze. When she lifted the glasses up and looked at them, and realized they were her own, she started crying, loudly. Ran to the teacher.
It was wonderful.
I’d like to think that this bully changed her ways after this and went on to become a really generous person. Maybe she started a non-profit charity, or volunteered at an animal shelter. The revenge here is perfect because the bully has no one to blame but herself! An important lesson was learned this day, and I wish that more people could learn without incidents like this to happen…
