Today, I had a meeting with a potential employee about a good paying job with benefits. Upon meeting, we immediately recognized each other. He was someone who used to make fun of me in school all the time. I responded by refusing to interview him and had security throw him out by force. Karma rocks. MLIA
KINDA deserved it?! More like DESERVED it x100! I was the target in school, and if I were ever in the position of the CEO of this FML, I would've done far worse than just kick my former tormentor out. Do you know how badly it scars a kid to be constantly bullied? Of course not, cause you were the kid being cruel to others without any thought of how it might affect them. I have trust issues thanks to assholes like the OP. I hope you never find a job again.
What? You want us to feel sorry for you? To feel sorry that a kid you mercilessly picked on in school was able to make it in life and you couldn't? That you just now realize that those kids figured it out before you did, and yet you picked on them for it? Yeah, Karma bites, but if I were Karma, I wouldn't even be satisfied with you being sadomized by a 500 pound, retarded Gorilla.
I don't disagree that OP deserves it, but I've been one of those people being picked on and bullied in school throughout my entire life as well. That sucks, and I can't take a compliment or even be satisfied with one single thing with myself because of it so I know how much it affects you, but often times, when people bully it has less to do with the person being bullied than the bully or people around them, so the CEO could also have been more mature and just asked OP to leave the building instead.

I disagree with you deserving it. If enough time has passed that he's now a CEO, then he should be adult enough to give you a chance despite how you treated him when you were children.
That's true. Even if you stand up to bullies, that doesn't mean they'll actually stop. Not to mention adults won't always be around to protect you. Even if you tell, all adults can do is tell the bully to leave you alone. Once you're no longer in sight of adults, the bullies will go back to smacking you around.
Nope, if you emotionally scar someone then YDI. If I met the person that bullied me today I would punch her in the face now that I have the muscle to and the guts because I've grown up and realized I need to defend myself, even if she didn't do anything that moment. But from all the embarrassing situations she put me in and the shitty things she did to me when I hadn't done a thing to her, yea, I would punch her, or embarrass the crap out of her back. Let her have a taste of her own medicine. I gave her more than 1 chance to not be mean to me, and she didn't give a shit, so now I don't either. So, OP, too bad, YDI. I hope you teach your kids to treat people like human beings with feelings instead of picking on someone.
Ideally, the CEO should have risen above all this and been magnanimous and forgiving. The reality is that bullying leaves deep emotional and psychological scars. Recent studies have shown that kids who are victims of bullying are far more likely to have serious psychological problems later in life, because of the bullying. Bullying hurts, physically and mentally and emotionally, and for a lot of people it's something that you simply don't "just get over." However, I have to say...that if the CEO gave the OP a job, that would be even greater revenge, because now the bully will be under his thumb, and will be in his former victim's debt. If you think about it, that's even worse than being thrown out, so maybe the OP should count his blessings. And yeah, if the OP has kids, teach them that bullying is WRONG and can have long-term effects.
Not bullied to the extent of being "tormented" as everyone here likes to exaggerate but bullied none the less. I played Yu-Gi-Oh during recess in middle school so it's not like I've never been picked on. What I do know is that nearly everyone here is making this seem like the CEO was beaten into an inch of his life everyday at recess and after school and that the people who are still actively wanting revenge 15 years later are the real idiots. Kids are stupid and people will change but if you don't think that then YOU'RE the one who will never change. (That YOU'RE was not directed at anybody specifically.)
I was bullied and I say this creep deserves it. I wasn't necessarily tormented, but I still remember it. In fact, I think it's probably the reason I've become such an extreme introvert, and a bit of a pessimist and sadist.... with a side of masochist. Hah. We don't know when the CEO guy was bullied or how long he was bullied. Many fucktwats never let up, and will keep bullying into high school, and sometimes even into college. Now what were we saying about acting like adults? And you don't have to be beat within an inch of your life/physically punished to continuously feel the effects from your bullying. CEO guy probably used his past treatment as a driving force to BECOME a CEO, so actually it would make sense if he still had a grudge, since he used his upset as a vehicle.
Universe WIN mega YDI
That sucks, but you kinda deserved it...
