To have smiled sweetly and said nothing to this school bully

14 years ago I left school. There was one girl who made my life hell, said a load of nasty things about me and told me I would never amount to anything. She also said I'd end up single and Childless at 30 working in a shop. (NB I see nothing wrong with this, but it was meant in a horrible, nasty, put downy way). This was amongst various other things she said and did to try to make my life a misery.

This morning I took my car to the car wash and saw her working there washing cars.

I ordered my car wash for my naice car with my baby DS in the back and said "fancy seeing you here". She made a grimace of a face and carried on with her work.

Karma you beauty.

Hahaha that's ace! I really hope you enjoyed that moment.

There was one particularly horrid boy at school who was a snobby spoilt little shit. He was Mr Popular and have everything his heart could desire. He was always horrible to me constantly making nasty cruel comments along with his gang of evil skateboard friends. (It was so bad that even now I can't walk past large groups of boys without having a fear of panic) he really did make my life a living misery for many years.

Anyway, where is he now? In prison for murdering his dad, who used to buy him all the latest Stussy tshirts and fancy skateboards!

These moments are the ones that used to make me grin from ear to ear - I was a huge geek at school and was picked on, bullied and excluded constantly, was told I'd never marry and I'd amount to nothing.

I recently saw a the popular girl from school - still working the same cashier job she'd had when she was 16. Did a small dance of joy inside

I once went for a family lunch with my dh's cousin. We were in a large group and my dh's uncle was 'instructing' (in a nice but somewhat persistent way) the waiter to take lots of photos of us (lots of 'and another one', 'can you take it from this angle' etc).The waiter did as he was asked and then walked away. As he did so my dh's cousin turned to me and said that she'd had no idea when she booked the table, but the waiter was her old boss, who'd made her life an absolute misery whilst working in a very glamorous industry. Karma indeed.

Brilliant! They do say the best revenge is a happy life!

I live moments like this. Last year I bumped into the 'it' girl at school. She used to look down on me and be very catty as she was so beautiful and I had ginger hair.
She had a little girl with the brightest red hair. Bet she has changed her mind about the colour now! grin

Fantastic grin

I had DS very young and remember a lovely young lady hmm telling me I would end up fat, ugly and working on a checkout for the rest of my life as she was off to uni to better herself, digs all the time about my fall from grace and not being as clever as everyone thought I was because I didn't have the sense to use contraception.

Low and behold, 6 years later wearing my size 10 business suit,taking an important work phone call whilst apologising to the checkout assistant for being rude I did a double take shock - she had a face like a smacked arse as she scanned my "naice" ham sandwich grin

Just wished I had polite,charming,drop dead gorgeous DS with me to rub salt in her bitter, nasty wounds.

Ohhh i sound a right bitch blush but she made me feel like shite every single day I attended 6th form pregnant.

I was doing last minute bargain-grabbing shopping on Christmas Eve with lovely DH at the Asda nearest my parents' house several years ago.

Karma gave me an early present in the form of one of my school bullies working the checkouts on what must have been a pretty miserable shift.... smile

When I had my first summer job when I was 12, I worked with a 14 year old girl. This girl was let go (the owner of the ice cream shop I worked in paid her 2 pounds an hour and me 1 pound, so she was being cheap. Anyway I didn't know this at the time and it wasn't my fault).

This girl waited for me on the way home, she and a friend shouted at me, called me names and hit me really hard round the face, and jeered at me as I ran off crying.

I was TERRIFIED of these girls, and spent years walking down back alleys to avoid then, they scared me when I was anywhere near them at school, and dreaded it happening again.

Years later, one of the girls was a heroin addict. And the one who hit me, I remember queuing at the deli counter and she was the person who served me, looking miserable, unkempt and wearing one of those vile white hats. I was in my work suit carrying my laptop bag and I remember thinking 'well, fuck you'. All those years scared of this woman now portioning up luncheon meat.

I don't mean to be disparaging about supermarket workers btw, my dd works in one.

Loving these sweet success revenge stories.

The best revenge is indeed to live life well

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Thu 05-Sep-13 16:45:48

Argh, I'm so jealous of all your stories. The "it" girl from my school who made my life a living hell has married a very wealthy (albeit much older) bloke and is living in an absolutely FABULOUS house, travels all over the world and generally living it up.

<bitter>

My lovely used to be bullied to bits at school by one particularly horrible girl. She found out that the girl who bullied her is now a teacher, and had to have the whole summer term off because of stress. Apparently she was being treated really badly by some of the other staff. The phrase used was, 'So-and-so is being bullied at school'. My niece liked that... a lot.

Not that I'm condoning bullying behaviour in adults or anything, but just karma, you know?

HazelnutinCaramel Thu 05-Sep-13 16:47:39

boosterseat do you think she was jealous of your pregnancy? Sounds like it!

Boosterseat Thu 05-Sep-13 16:50:04

I didn't think anyone got jealous at 16 for being pregnant. confused
Perhaps, i never really thought about it like that. I just thought she was being a nasty cow.

ILetHimKeep20Quid Thu 05-Sep-13 16:51:28

I recall vividly a snobby swotty type telling me she'd look down on me cleaning the streets whilst she sat in her top floor office.

I've not had my moment yet but I'm sure it will come.

GerardButlersSecretLover Thu 05-Sep-13 16:54:14

Years ago I rescued a friend from being beaten up in a toilet. I am quite a timid person and have never done something like it before or since. I did a Cagney and Lacey type maenouvre and kicked the toilet door open and dragged my friend out. Last time I heard anything about the bully she was a drug addict!

Boosterseat Thu 05-Sep-13 16:54:50

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts I know a lady of leisure who lives it up in a fabulous house, drives an amazing car, goes on foreign holidays x3 per year.

He "D"H is a nasty, feckless sleazeball who likes to chat up young office juniors on work nights out with promises of champagne and fancy hotel rooms while she lounges at home.

Maybe its the same person!

MarmaladeTwatkins Thu 05-Sep-13 16:57:36

Whilst it's nice to see bullies get their just desserts, you're all being a bit mean about shop workers as though it's a lesser job to be scoffed at. I've worked in a shop for yonks and I'd be gutted if people thought I was a failure because of my lack of career.
