Here's an awesome New Yorker piece about the indelible memory of being bullied:
Wow, his bully wound up as a convicted felon? That's awesome.
One of my childhood bullies in Ohio is on the cleaning crew that scrubs a couple of McDonalds restaurants every night. I celebrate that revelation.
The story of that scam is excellent bonus material.
I'm not knocking on the rest but I never got that whole bully thing. In Ukraine after school people tried to beat up the Jew. That worked in the beginning when I didn't how what the hell. Once I did I made it extremely difficult for anyone to do that effectively.
Coming to the US during cold war I was a vet in this and rarely did people tried to try something after the first time.
I'm going to give credit to my dad. When he was on a sixth floor balcony setting down below me getting my bike taken away. I Ed elated when I saw him. "Dad look. He's taking my bike!!"
" And? Is he taking my bike or yours? Deal with it" I was more stunned by that answer than the neighborhood kid taking off with the bike. This was Ukraine I was 7 at the time. Ever since that day I've "dealt with it".
