Are you ever tempted to find the bully who tortured you in school and punch her?

    I am so tempted, but, my mother taught me not to hit girls. I must now live with this emotional trauma!

    Yes, but then I figure Principal Jenkins is probably quite old by now, and a punch might be too much for her.  Should have slugged her in 3rd grade when I had the chance.

    I wasn't bullied in school. But I can think of a few people I remember that I might like to give a good smack to the noggin.

    Ah, so there are no male bullies.  At school, I was built like the proverbial brick s********, so I was generally left alone, cos bullies are cowards.  At one time a little group of boys got at me, I waited, and got them all individualy, a couple of them I had to wait for several years after leaving school, but I got them.

      I agree with Beachlife, I have better things to do, now.  But in the 1960s, when I was a teen, it was important to regain face.

    No, even though they (multiple bullies) were terrible to me. I'm glad I never retaliated, because now Karma is doing all the work for me. Sometimes I see these people in public or see their Facebook statuses and realize how much better my life has turned out compared to theirs, thank goodness. No, I didn't turn out to be a supermodel, or rich, or important in the world's eyes, but I have a husband who loves me for me, two fabulous children, a roof over my head, a wonderful extended family, and many awesome friends. Since my bullies could never learn to work well with others, they are in miserable jobs, going from relationship to relationship, and many still live at home with their parents.

    As I learned from a wise woman: "Karma is gonna get you, baby."

    Talk about carrying ridiculous, unnecessary, and useless baggage for 20 years!  No way!  Everything in life is a lesson, and I learned that I was stronger than they were.  I've reconnected with some of them on Facebook, and lo and behold, they're average people living average lives.
