Bullying Is Elementary, Sadly

, , , | Friendly | January 23, 2020

(I am working in customer service for a store that customers can order merchandise from. Everything is going well, and then I notice two women walk in. They are greeted by someone else and then I take another look. The younger one I recognize as being a bully in my elementary school! She bullied me a lot when I was going through a tough time. I couldn’t do much because she was two times my size in height and weight. We also played in a soccer league together, but we didn’t really interact much for some reason. I think it was because I avoided her. Anyway, I try to go hide in the back, but my boss gives me a look, so I end up taking their order.)

Old Bully: “Say… I know you from somewhere. You look familiar.”

Me: *playing dumb* “Oh, really? I don’t recall.”

Old Bully: “Did you live in [City]?”

Me: “Yes… when I was a kid.”

Old Bully: “I knew it!” *turns to the other woman* “Ma, this is a girl I used to play soccer with.”

Bully’s Mom: *beaming* “Oh, how nice!”

Me: “Uh, I don’t remember. Anyway, back to your order…”

(Everything went smoothly with their order after that, and they left, giving me weird looks. I would’ve loved to say how horribly she bullied me but I felt like it was overkill with her lovely mom there. It’s funny how she remembers the soccer but not the classroom!)
