How is karma a bitch? All OP wanted was a shoulder to lean on. Depression sucks. I've been battling it since I can remember and let me tell you that it is not easy. Yes, it has been getting better and easier, however, depression can hit like a bomb. One minute we're fine and happy-go-lucky and the next minute we're crying for no reason.
The depression bit is what turns this story from a YDI to a FML so it's completely relevant. Without it the OP is a dick who turned on his classmate for no good reason. With it, it's obvious that the classmate is shitty at being a friend and and even worse at spelling.
the depression is totally relevant. you don't tell someone who has depression "to nut up and grow a pair". That's more harmful than helpful, people with depression have a hard time picking themselves back up, that's why it's good to confide in friends to help. obviously one of OPs 3 friends he/she confided in either has a bad sense of humour, or isn't a good friend. that and if they are ignorant enough to say that to a depressed person needing support, they better at least spell the insult right.
Standing up for yourself would be telling said classmate that that was insensitive and rude and maybe try to explain why. Standing up for yourself is not accomplished by making fun of someone. I'm not defending the actions of the classmate, but I can't condone the behavior of OP in this instance either.
It says the literal words "We mocked him for being an illiterate jackass." So OP and his classmates began the teasing. Regardless of what OP was talking about, they had picked on someone therefore that someone is picking back. Karma is relevant. OP's post isn't. Depression doesn't make you mock people.
#86 What are you, retarded? The classmate mocked the OP for his depression, so the classmate who mocked him was the one who started it. If that jackass was gonna mock somebody for having depression and couldn't use proper grammar in his insult, then he deserved it to get mocked back.
Pears are yummy, maybe he was offended you didn't want to grow some for him.
Depression's a serious issue, man, but if you really feel like it, file a police report using your two witnesses of classmates. Hope you get the help you need.
I have to agree. Most of the time police will side with the person that cried wolf first. In your case however, if you report it first and tell the police that the other 2 were attacked (and lets say afterward something did happen to you), it will be INFINITELY easier for you in the long run. Because you reported it first. Good luck to you.
On the plus side, if it turns out to be the so-called 'illiterate jackass", I hope he gets reported to the police and gets what's coming for him. People who flaunt their ignorance about mental illnesses in such a way are one of my pet peeves.
seriously, yeah depression sucks , but you couldn't just ignore the ass ? he is gonna get you good.
Yeah, depression does suck and when someone is vandalizing OP's property just from needing a "shoulder to cry on," is really far fetched and psychotic. I've been battling depression ever since I was little; it's not something we can "just get over and ignore." Obviously OP is in danger if the other classmates have slashed his tires and egged his house...
He's an asshole for brushing off depression. And his reaction was really out of proportion. What a madman, you should report him before anything escalates!
