I really need advice about Bullying :( watch

    • Thread Starter

    First of all, I'd like to say how embarassing this is for me. Recently I've been bullied (for lack of a better word) every morning walking from my house to the bus stop. I'm nearly 18, it feels a bit like Peepshow where Mark gets bullied by the kids, they even called me a pedo when I asked how old they were. The people doing it are 3 guys, who look about 14, and have thrown snowballs, coins and plastic bottles (and of course insults) at me. Today one ran up behind me and touched my head. I'm in private school, so obviously in uniform, and they go to the public school next to my house. I don't know what to do. Should I fight them? I'm afraid they'll vandalize my house if I do (they know where I live), or get friends to help them. I'm allot older and bigger than them, but i hate violence/cannot fight for me life. I also wouldn't want to get in trouble. I could just take an earlier bus/walk a different root, but its a massive effort to change my morning routine, and I feel like that would be telling them its ok to bully people. I have no idea what to do, and furthermore I'm not even from here (Scotland) i'm american, so I'm not even part of the class war that this is about. Advice?
