When You Were In School, Were You A

Bully, or were you bullied? When you saw other kids getting bullied, did you help them or stay out of it?

I wasn't a bully, and I didn't get bullied, but I also didn't help other kids when I saw they were getting bullied. I wish I could know what I know now, and go back to help those other kids. When I was in the fifth grade, there was a girl, named Barbara, who was slow. They would bully her everyday. I stood there and didn't do a thing. I wish I had. I still remember that girl, to this day and wonder what happened to her.

I went to private school for most of my education. I never saw any bullying. There was some teasing, but it would get shut down by the teachers pretty quick.

I was bullied.  I never bullied anyone else.  I couldn't help anyone else when I couldn't even help myself.

Bullies are the worst kids there are. Sometimes they grow up still being a bully. I wish there was a way, we could put a stop to them.

I went to a catholic school and the bully was the nun I had as a teacher for 7th and 8th grade.  She grabbed me by the back of my collar and threw me across the class once.  Her favorite thing to do was stand you up and have the rest of the class criticize you.

I never ever had a bullying personality.  I was not bullied,but sometimes teased a little, nothing serious.  Some children and teens can be mean on occasion. When I started my first full time job in a medical clinic, though, I was a victim of workplace bullying.  That was an eye opener for me, as they could be real bitches and the office manager would just go into his office and close the door, not wanting to deal with anything.

I know what you mean. I know there are adult bullies too. I think that's even worse than kid bullies.

Neither. I got picked on every now and then but was never really bullied. I sure didn't bully others either.
I seriously don't remember other kids getting bullied. But then again different people believe bullying is if a kid tells you your outfit is ugly. I don't find that being a bully, but being rude and obnoxious.
My youngest was bullied in the 6th grade. A classmate hit her in the face in front of the teacher and then continued on for weeks afterwards as if my daughter was the problem. That is a bully. We had to turn the other girl into the authorities to get it to stop.

Anyway, I just didn't see others around me when I was a kid, get bullied.

So right.  There definitely are adult bullies, and I had one in my last part time job as well. She, too, was just allowed to get away with it as she was there a long time.   I have vowed never to put up with that again.  Nobody should have to.
