a few of them.

I don't know if I know any bullies from my personal life (well not since elementary school at least) but I have seen a few people on the internet that would definitely fit this description. I think a lot of people are bullies on the internet when they wouldn't normally be, just because they can get away with it :P
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/17/02 - 10:24:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
I used to know many people like this.
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/17/02 - 10:28:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think I've ever met anyone with all of those characteristics, but certainly a few people with several of them.

I know one girl in perticular who meets almost every single one of those descriptions. She bullied me for years and she's still trying to, but now I'm ignoring her and its driving her crazy. I love it.

bob*the*cat- MY GOD! you answered exactly how I was going to. I know somebody who meets all of these points, and has done for as long sas Ive known her (since she was 6- she was an amazing manipulator for a 6 year old) and she bullied me mercilessly from the age 7-11, and basically left me a hollow shell of the innocent child I once was. But, because she was so expert at being the perfect angel to everyone else, she went without punishment, and therefore still does it to other's now. I hate watching her control people, and recognising it, and not being able to warn them because they don't believe such a sweet, pretty, charming, bright young woman could be so malicious. (I've actually copied this, and I'm going to show it to a few friends and ask who I'm thining of- I bet they all guess corectly :) )

Sounds like most of the conservatives on this site.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/4/03 - 10:41:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think there are people like that all over the world.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/26/03 - 5:03:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, her name is Suba Sruti Desikan.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 3/21/03 - 12:10:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
nah, I'm not a bully

Here's a sad, sad story

Yeah, that sounds like the bullies I dealt with in high school. They were really good at convincing people that they were innocent.

That's how all bullies are. F*cking psychopaths

Parents Turn to Courts to Stop Bullying

Oh jeez... yet another label for others to pin on people they either dont like or dont understand...
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/23/04 - 2:19:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Schools are such bullsh*t, they never do anything about bullying.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/23/04 - 2:46:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Because schools are run by politics - nobody wants to offend parents, because then schools boards won't get re-elected. Plus a lot of teachers are scared to step in, they don't want to turn violence onto themselves.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/23/04 - 3:22:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
And kids are afraid to speak out
