They often go off the edge and become outright bullies. The type you’d see on the first Karate Kid movie (1984). The ones teasing “little Danny (mocking crying face)”, throwing his bike off a cliff (with him in it) – lol – going to Cobra Ki Karate School.
Anyway, my encounters with them, though maybe somewhat deserved – were incredibly horrible – ranging from my time as a teacher to being called faaaagot (goat sound) at college. Always it’s the same type – these bratty boys (and also girls) who get everything they want – and are so bored, all they have to do with their time is pick on the weak. They will pick on anyone – even teachers, old people – and, of course, peers – and even as older adults, they will pick on kids!
What’s the solution for this? A trip to the woodshed – of course! But whose going to give it? The parents of these brats are often the same – and other ones are incredibly naive.
