“You sit like you’re retarded.”
What a crappy line to hear in the early morning.
Bullying is going the way of the dodo in the USA.
Stars are coming out against it, documentaries are being made.
And the government is now getting involved.
Look into the “War on Drugs” and you will see how good the government is at fixing societal behaviors.
I straddle an odd little fence on the subject.
I’ve been bullied, and yes, it does suck.
I’ve also been a bully at times, not proud of that, but it is what it is.
It seems like the current train of thought is that, if we just let the bully know that he is hurting someone elses feelings, he’ll stop.
Pull Dr. Phil’s head out of your ass and think about that one for a moment.
Bullies, at least to my experience, are compensating for something.
They are bigger than everyone else, maybe fat, or just taller than everyone else at an insecure time of childhood.
They might have something noticeably embarrassing, like a hairy mole on their face. (I’ve seen this one, so don’t blow it off. It humiliated the kid to the point that he was like a rage filled animal at all times.)
They might have a parent abusing them at home and they are acting out.
Whatever the reason, they are almost always in hell and shit rolls down hill.
I am going to hop off of my soap box for a minute and tell you why.
The shitty line at the opening? Someone just said that to the sloppy looking kid at the next table.
He is late teens by the look of it, and not the sharpest tool in the shed, also by the looks of it.
The bully resembles him enough that I am going to guess she’s mom.
Sometimes a bully is the person that is supposed to protect you from them.
What do you do then?
Evidently, the boy is not committing to going to college or ponying up a solid idea for gainful employment.
I went thru this period with my son and it is a tense time. (He flew thru that period with flying colors, by the way.)
The boy’s name appears to be Danny. Anyway, Danny has never graduated from the sullen eyes down cast method of dealing with Mom’s dressing down.
And she really is a rotten bitch about it.
I have only been listening for a few minutes, but I know every fault he has, just from listening to his mother.
But I never heard one positive thing about him from her.
While you want him to grow a spine and put that bitch into her place.
But a spine is something you grow and develop throughout your childhood.
You raise your kids to be grown ups and stand on their own feet.
But, like a plant in the desert, they don’t grow if you give them nothing to grow on.
Talk to my son someday. He has a quieter personality than me, every bit as vicious a sense of humor and has a subtle way of manipulation that I envy.
I feel bad for Danny, I really do.
Some people are dealt the crap hand of parents in life.
Hopefully, when he finally gets out on his own, he puts this miserable hag behind him and gets on with life.
The odds are against it, but I can wish that for him.
Good luck Danny, your mothers a piece of work.
