When I was about 13/14 my family went thru all kinds of upheaval and stress mainly doe to parents divorce and financial hardship. One girl in my eighth grade class was Queen Bee………everyone catered to her and she was very intimidating. I never bothered her but she ridiculed me a lot because I wore glasses, didn’t have fancy clothes, whatever. Oh, I also got the highest grades and she felt I was teacher’s pet. Once she threatened to fight me because someone told her I said “whatever”.

I was so happy to move away. But 20 yrs later I was working in an office building, and lo and behold she was one of the women who cleaned the ladies’ rest room! She recognized me and we talked a few minutes. She’d had a couple kids, dropped out of high school, and looked like c.r.a.p. Cleaning toilets……..what a success story! She must have asked for a transfer because I never saw her again.:)

A few years later I saw two sisters who were high school bullies and troublemakers.......I gave them an icy stare, got into my new car and drove away.

Good for you. I had a similar type thing happen. I had a teacher in high school that constantly picked on a bulllied me and some of my other poor friends. Fast forward 10 years, I arrested him for DUI. Talk about a good feeling. lol

Ted, congrats. When I was young I handled some idiot that bullied me in a different manner when I had enogh of his crap I touk a board and smacked him across the chest with it. This was back in the 7th grade.. I got in trouble but it was worth it he never bothered me again and I was not bullied again. Bullies are nothing more than "closet cowards" the "popularity queens" in high school ten years down the road end up with 10 kids by 6 different dadies on welfare or at a crap job and weigh 300 pounds. The big time jock ends up with a pot belly selling used cars. Like you, I did not have much when I was young and was put down many times. Yet it was the best motivator for getting somewhere and not having to take crap like I did in my youth.. I what would be considered among the 'Top 5% in net worth" today although I do not flaunt what I have. It amuzes me when the so called popularity queens and kings from high school today kiss my "derrierre" if they need something. Ted, I am proud of you for your accomplishments it is a form of "poetic justice".

I did the same thing in the 7'th grade, exept with me it was a very thick math book across the head. Same result. Bully's suck.
