Response to The Doctor. (Reply #40)

44. I didn't do a thing

Though they quit after a while. Minor stuff, though.

One kicked me sitting from behind me. Maybe the teacher saw it and yelled at her.

Another threw rock laden snowballs at me on the way home from school. A boy. I was a girl and wasn't exactly the type who would beat up a boy or succeed at that. He just got tired of doing that eventually.

Now had I lived in modern times, I might not have been too embarrassed to say something to the school teachers or parents. Don't know what my parents would have done, but doubt it would have been "well, hit this boy with a snowball." Snowballs thrown by me would not teach anyone a lesson.

Then there's the non-physical bullying, where they make fun of your clothes, etc. I did not have the social power to return that. Physically hitting them would have gotten me in trouble, I imagine.

What of the skinny and nerdy kid? So they go up to some bully and hit him? That's not going to work. They'd have to do something more subtle or clever.
