A High School bully humiliated me on the bus.
I was the last stop on the bus, so there was always a lack of seats. I got on the bus and spotted one empty seat next to someone. I walked over and sat next to him.
He turned to me and said, “I didn’t say you could sit there.” I replied, “There were no other seats.” I guess he didn’t care because he repeated his previous statement. I just ignored him.
Then he shouted at the top of his lungs ” Get outta my seat!” I was taken aback. I couldn’t believe he just shouted that on the bus at me, the situation felt surreal. I saw everyone on the bus start to look in my direction.
I froze up. I started weighing my options. I knew I couldn’t take this guy in a fight; he was crazy. As you should be able to tell from his situation. As I’m still pondering what to do, he shouts again “I said, get outta my seat!”
Then before I can find a way out, he kicks me out of the seat. I stand up in the middle of the bus, and I’m met with roaring laughter from all the other kids on the bus.
Thye bully stands up ready to fight, and I just walk away. Even if I was able to beat him in a 1 on 1 fight, I knew he was the type to come back the next day with 5 of his friends to beat you to a pulp.
I walked to the back of the bus and sat in the half-seat with the mentally challenged kid.
I wasn’t about to let things end like that though. So, I planned for my revenge. I started catching the city bus to school, instead of the school bus to avoid further humiliation. Things blew over eventually, and everyone forgot about that incident….but I didn’t.
I waited until one day; I saw that bully on the bus with a grill lighter smoking weed. Then he took the grill lighter and smacked a guy in the face with it, and he started crying. I knew this was my chance.
I created an anonymous email address and sent an email to my school officials. I told them about the bully smoking weed on the bus and smacking that kid in the face with a grill lighter. I made sure not to say anything that could give my identity away. That way, no one would know who “tattled.”
The school investigated the issue and found the evidence they needed from eye witness testimonies on the bus. That bully was expelled from school, and I was free to ride the bus in peace.
