FML - The follow-up
LyraAlluse Say more :
Hello everyone, OP here. I have enjoyed reading the comments, they are all very amusing and gave me a good laugh. In response to the Karate Kid comment, I actually practice Tai Chi, Qigong, Sword Fighting, and other martial arts/ weapon combat styles. Sometimes I do feel like the Karate Kid, especially with this latest development in my life. Because of my martial arts training I believe in self-defense and since all the kid hurled at me were threats, I am not too concerned. I don't think he believed I was above the age of thirteen until I drove in my car today and then you should have seen his expression. It was very amusing. I tend to look very young for my age (hey I'm not complaining) so people tend to think I am in my very early teens all of the time. I was even denied access to a lot of the casinos at Cliff Castle not too long ago because I looked too young to be on the casino floors. At the end of the day I had to wear a stamp that confirmed my age to even be allowed on the casino floors so in some sense I can understand why people mistake me for being so young. In response to the question about living at home, I happen to be a working professional, those years are behind me now. But there are definitely days when I wish that I was still as young as people like to think I am. If I happen to see the kid's parents I'll let them know about his behavior so he doesn't treat the other neighborhood kids the same way. Thank you for the support in all of this. No one should be bullied no matter what age they happen to be. I hope this will inspire other people to stop bullying in their schools and neighborhoods too.

Have you tried standing up for yourself?

#1 I thought your comment was funny. Obviously OP can't do that and it was random. So props and thanks for the laugh. I expect to get downvoted on this one. I don't care.

58 - it's not like the OP could do anything to the kid to "stand up" for "himself" (the OP is female btw) as the OP is an adult and could be pressed with charges.

Not really, and if a 12 year old threatened me like that, first thing I'd do is inform the parent that their child is picking fights they couldn't possibly hope to handle. And if the parent does nothing, inform the police, and yes, I will defend myself if attacked, even by a 12 year old. There have been cases where 12 year olds beat their parents and kill younger siblings, I don't intend to let an undisciplined little brat bully me, verbally or physically.

True, true. Too many kids/teenagers do like to have their trousers hanging very low. I imagine a belt may be very beneficial. Might be against the local fashion, though. :P

Having your pants hang way down Originated in prison when inmates wanted to let others know they were available/willing to accept it in the rear. If only kids these days knew what their body language was projecting.

#48 Sagging did indeed originate in prisons and mental health facilities. But it had nothing to do with advertising for anal sex. It had to do with the fact that belts and shoelaces were confiscated to make it harder for the inmates/patients to suicide themselves. If only the anti-saggers knew what they were talking about. I gotta say I love the way word-of-mouth like this is taken as fact without any sort of checking. That reminds me. Did you hear that Einstein was black? Apparently he went about in white face in order to make the Science! community take him seriously.

The funny thing is that's a trend that started in jails. Men who were willing to...receive ( to put it appropriately) wore there pants low so other jail birds knew. It also made them easy access :p

Kids these days need to bring back the good ol' grandpa style. Hike those pants up til they reach your belly button. You'd be a trend starter for sure. It'd be even better if you sported the plaid golfer pants as well.

Maybe it's just where I live but I rarely see kids with sagging pants anymore, that shits from like 5-10 years ago. Nowadays it's emos with pants that looked like they were bought from a store my gf would shop at.

Although he's young, I don't think most people rode tricycles at 12.
