"Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never harm me".

Simple words, yet the biggest lie ever perpetrated on children, from kindergarten through 12th grade. I honestly don't know how I survived.

Some crawl into their shells. Others hurt themselves, believing the lies their classmates throw at them, again and again, as to how stupid or ugly they are, even when they may, in some topics, actually be smarter, with these classmates trying to drag them down.

Sometimes the "advice" is totally wrong. "Beat up one of the crew that messes with you". Nope, they have friends who will beat on you, either in the lunchroom or after school, plus, I never learned how to fight. Also, I was the kid who not only got beaten up to a pulp, but I was the one suspended for fighting. Mom drove me, one time, to the house of one kid who beat me up, but he had  one of those mothers who stared down mom and me, stating, "My Lester would NEVER do anything like that!" (Sidenote: When Lester announced in class that he was moving out of the community, the other students applauded.)

Unfortunately, things like this can, and will, result in another Columbine shooting incident.

A few, as adults, get a satisfactory revenge. The "jocks" who picked on the "nerds" now pay them for their services as accountants or computer repair personnel. I had something to prove to both the world and myself, and I became an EMT. Then as now, I may not be the best EMT in the world, but I am competent in what I do.

And if those nerds remember those jocks, heaven help those jocks.  Those nerds can get their revenge and the jocks will never realize what those nerds did to them.  Sort of divine justice.

Not really. If it became known a nerd was causing damage to someone who "damaged" them in the past, they could lose customers not involved with the past time Jock. I may be doing an incomplete or inaccurate quote, but sometimes just living well is the best revenge.

Other than that, go Klingon:

Revenge is a dish best served up cold!

I disagree Richard.  If the Jocks never find out then how will the customers of the Nerds find out?
