    Yeah it is quite funny but did she actually remember you from school and see it as revenge. Far better would be to just walk in and punch her in the face. Why did she bully you? I take it you are a girl as well.
    Oh, she remembered me.

    "What the **** are you doing here?"
    "That's not really a way to speak to a customer, is it?"

    I have no desire for violence, and no idea why she bullied me. Yes, I am also female.

    I would have got no satisfaction from being violent, whereas this was quite amusing to me.
    ah you misunderstand not violence. sorry I edited my post as I thought I'd include an example, I'll past it here...

    An example might be going through the till as normal then going to find the manager and saying that I feel really guilty so have to inform them that the person on the till goes to my school/college etc and they just offered to sell my group of friends alcohol even though we're not 18 and I'd heard they'd been doing it for a while. This would only work in stores without CCTV covering the tills, but a fair few supermarkets don't do this so it would work.

    but it depends on how bad the bullying was.

    would have been better if you'd paid with a £50 note and then said as she gave you your change "oh isn't it funny you serving me here"
    haha that's brilliant I don't want to go p*ssing you off!

    I would have made her count them twice, 'just to make sure', you wouldn't want to be overcharge, would you?

    The bullying led to me having a broken arm at once stage.

    I don't know... She might have a kid or someone to support, I wouldn't want her to lose her job. This felt like enough.

    Actually, as a matter of law, the money you were proposing to pay with was not legal tender - so the manager had a right to refuse you. But, thankfully he either didn't know or didn't care (or wanted more change!) so she had to count it all lol.

    Not too embarrass you or drift off topic but "London, England, United Kingdom, Europe, Northern Hemisphere, World, Universe, Milkyway Galaxy." is wrong. If you're a physics applicant then surely you know that galaxies are in the Universe, not the other way around...
    Oh my bad. Someone reminded me that I left off the milky way galaxy and I just stuck it on the end. I'll change it next time I remember so that it doesn't cause anymore successdistress.

    Great revenge!

    Til she sees you in the street and hits you in the face with a shovel she is conveniently holding. (: I joke, not bad but at the same time... she was getting paid.

    Yeah - luckily, neither she nor her manager seemed to realise that.
    Both are soft bints.

    a broken arm!? *hugs*:console:

    Hmmm..did she push you over, or actually hit you? I bet it hurt a lot, breaks really do, unfortunately bullies don't understand how much things hurt at times, you have to be on the receiving end to appreciate the effects an action..

    I was bullied a lot in school. A few days ago, I found out that my worst bully was working the tills during specific known hours at the local supermarket ... so I decided to pay her a visit.

    There was something I wanted to buy anyway for £20, so I decided to find it in the smallest change I had and buy it there from this girl. As luck would have it, I had two thousand pennies* ... so I gathered them up, went and got this item, went to her till and presented my bag of two thousand pennies.

    She called her manager over and, in the conversation that followed, I said, "So let me get this straight for when I tell the papers - you're going to refuse to accept legal tender?" In the end, the manager just told this girl to count them, and it felt great watching her count all two thousand of them.

    Am I mental? Who the hell collects and counts two thousand pennies, then carries them around (they're quite heavy) and then gets such satisfaction from watching someone else have to count them out to make sure there are indeed two thousand of them?

    Is it bad that I felt so vindicated after this incident?


    * Well, I didn't have all two thousand ... but various friends and family contributed, and I paid them in large coins, so they were happy.
    You just wrote one of the funniest things I have ever read. I will remember this forever.

    How long did it take her to count the pennies? did she lose count?

    Lool, I said the sentence in my head then got distracted while typing.

    Damn me and my lack of ability to multitask.

    What are you talking about OP? You did this girl a favour!

    I used to work in a supermarket and I'd have been happy for the distraction. The more time spent counting pennies, the less time spent serving idiot customers.
