10. Many years ago my oldest brother was being bullied on

the school bus on the way home in the afternoon.


My brother was big for his age (and ironically a target foy older bullies). Anyway, our dad told him to hit the bully on his nose. My brother was worried that would get him kicked off the school bus. (This was many years ago.)

Anyway, my brother finally had enough. He smacked the bully on his nose. There was blood. They were both evicted off the school bus. The next day, the school bus driver thanked my brother for what he did.

My brother waited until it was two blocks to our stop before he threw that punch. He's always been a pretty smart guy.
