A 22-year-old woman was handed a golden opportunity to stick it to an old school bully who used to make fun of her weight and physical appearance, and man, how she got her revenge will make you start chanting and cheering like you did the first time you watched Rudy.
Here’s the scenario. The girl was ruthlessly made fun of by a guy during her 8th grade year, so much so that she developed an eating disorder. Well the “ugly duckling” grows up into a super beautiful woman, bumps into the jerk bully, who then has the gall to ask her out on a date. LIKE me on Facebook – no one turned away.
She says yes, shows up early to the restaurant and leaves him a note that’s simply epic.
From Opposing Views:
“So sorry I can’t join you tonight,” the note reads. “Remember year 8, when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do – I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I’ve decided to skip dinner. Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast? No perhaps you don’t – or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me f**kable enough to treat me like a human being. I thought I’d send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.”
Ouch! This dude just got kicked right in the feels–only with words. Surprisingly, the big, bad bully actually apologized for the torment he put the young lady through.
“Hey… For what it’s worth, I was actually here to meet up looking for a chance to meet up looking to make friends, not because you are very good looking,” the guy admitted in his message to Manning. “I guess I had it coming though, and certainly don’t blame you for standing me up. I can’t change who I was 8 years ago, and I won’t insult your intelligence by pretending that it didn’t happen, but I hope you believe me when I say I’m a completely different person now. I can only apologise and wish you the very best. I guess I won’t hear from you again but I mean it when I say that I hope you have every success you deserve.”
Wow. Well, that was pretty unexpected.
While “bullying” is a term that’s lost much of its meaning thanks to progressives overusing and abusing the word, the real deal can have a devastating impact on a kid.
This poor girl lived with the scars caused by her tormentor for quite some time, which is one of the reasons children need to be taught effective methods for dealing with bullies. Sometimes, a bully just needs a good sock in the mouth.
That’ll get me in trouble for sure.
Anyway, this dude seems to have learned his lesson, so hopefully Manning can move on and let go of the past and move on without giving this guy a second thought.
