    I wouldn't exactly call mine bullying, but I seem to get picked on by the public everytime I go out. I was recently in WHSmiths minding my own business when two girls thought it would be fun to be nasty - they were saying 'we don't like girls with moustaches', 'she's well ugly' and making noises behind me. On other occassions I've been barked at from a passing car, called an ugly c (swear word) and got people just laughing at me. I know it's not as bad as bullying in schools and such but it gets me down. What the hell am I doing to deserve such unprovoked attacks all the time?

    Well most I must say are younger, about 15-17, which makes it even worse. It's always been the case..I was bullied by a girl in the year below me in junior school. Some are older, or my own age. So really any age!

    Bullying is horrible - I had quite a lot of it in school. I still want to know why society assumes young people can just "deal with it"

    When I went to secondary School in yr 7-9 I had people 'trying' to bully me by name calling constantly, and other childish things. I have a high temperment, but its like someone constantly poking you no stop for hours, when they have been told to stop.

    When I finally loss my paitence I punched a guy in the face, which no one expected due to my non-violence record, and after that no one said anything, knowing I will not react until it has gone too far. At the end of the day most bullies turn out to be retarded, and leave scholl with no grades after 16 years in education, upsets me that they will be a drain on the country. :rolleyes:

    Whe I was 14 I bumped into (not literally) a girl who used to go to my school with 2 rough looking friends. For some reason they decided to beat me up. Stupid really, as I knew her name and where her dad lived. I called the police and it eventually went to court. She got sentenced to 24 hours in a detention centre. Unfortunately when I started college at 16 she was on my course!! We put everything behind us and became friends after that.
