The Best Revenge You’ve Ever Had — Win a FREE download!

“Sophie!” she squealed and the kids around us jumped. That’ll teach them to eavesdrop.

“What?”

“Your passport picture is so super-duper cute!” She grabbed my passport out of my hand. It was not cute, believe me. She pulled out her own picture.

“Mine is so terrible,” she moaned. She put them side-by-side so I could see her photo. I’ve seen less seductive expressions on Victoria’s Secret models.

“Oh my gosh, everyone look at how cute Sophie’s picture is and how awful mine is!” She passed them around the bus.

I sighed and looked at my watch: only seven hours and fifty-eight minutes to go.

  1. Yay! I’m so excited! 🙂

    Ok, I’ve got a good bully story to get the ball rolling. When I was a sophomore in high school, there was one girl who always copied my work no matter what I did to stop her. So one day during a test I purposely put down all the wrong answers and then waited for her to turn it in. Then I changed all the answers to the right ones. She never copied off me again!

    • That is an awesome story. My bullying/revenge memories from high school aren’t quite so poetic as that. I think I kind of walked around in a daze in high school and I was really confused when people targeted me to bully. I was extremely quiet and my goal was to completely blend in to the background in high school. So I mostly ignored anything that happened because, for one, I couldn’t really believe that someone that I thought was “popular” would even think to pick on me. I probably ended up being the most frustrating person to bully because I had no reaction — and it wasn’t even because I knew that could be the best revenge. It’s because I didn’t believe that they were even paying attention to my reaction. It worked, but I have no great revenge stories like this one!

      • We moved around a lot when I was growing up, so I was always the new kid. That made me a target for bullies, but the fun wore off when they realized I wasn’t going to react the way they wanted me to. This was the one and only time I actually got any sort of revenge.

        For most of my growing up years, I was a lot like you . . . quiet and hopeful for a place to blend in. 🙂
