was wondering if you'd tell more about your experiences #92

Primarily I was bullied because I was a fat kid. I'm sure you can probably imagine most of what happened. Primarily verbal assaults, but there were a few physical that come to mind. Specifics are pretty vague at this point. But I do remember getting pretty good at responses that shut bullies up by the time I was in high school.

One that just came to mind -- a kid would say "Hungry, Hungry Hippos" at me on the bus day after day. I ignored it day after day, but one day I got him to stop by grabbing his wrist hand and inflicting my sharp fingernails into his skin. And I would NOT let go until he stopped. Most times I didn't resort to violence, but since he was close by (the bus seat behind me), I thought it came in pretty handy.

Ask me anything
