Default Those Stories You Want to Tell

Maybe these things happened to you, maybe they happened to someone else.... Here's your chance to tell them.

I'll go first:
I remember a guy who was kinda awkward in jr. high, but he would speak his mind. Quietly, but with confidence. He wasn't perfect, and he sometimes got things wrong, and he knew it. But, the people around him thought it was funny to loudly ask him questions, and then berate his answers, no matter what those answer were, without even checking to see if he knew what he was talking about.

An example: Many states, including the state he lived in have a different style of plates for trucks than they do for cars. I don't know why it even came up, but one day, someone loudly asked this guy if he knew why some plates looked different than others. He replied, "Well, trucks have a different style". The respondent laughed and said, "That can't be true, because I saw an El Camino with a truck plate.." His response was, "In our state El Caminos are classified as trucks." More laughter.

Unhappy Re: Those Stories You Want to Tell

When I was in... oh... about 4th or 5th grade I guess it must have been... (so many decades ago) a girl in our class who was always very quiet wet her pants in class. I think I remember it because in... oh... around 7th or 8th grade or so... I vomited in class...

I remember a quiet guy in jr. high who others liked to pick on. One day, some bullies put books in his backpack that hadn't been checked out. There were electronic sensors in them, so that when he tried to leave the library, alarms went off. The librarian made him open his backpack, and he had a hard time explaining what the books were doing there.

He was really frustrated and started yelling, "why are you so stupid?" "why can't you show some common sense?" He knew that she knew what he wanted. He wanted her to understand that he was right about spending that money on a new TV. Why couldn't she realize that?

He was standing in line- because his wife asked him to. She had gotten her hotdog, but was standing in another line for popcorn, when she decided she was too hungry to wait- she caught his attention, and now he was standing in line while she was sitting down and eating her hotdog.

Did the people around him realize that he hadn't cut into the line? As he walked up to take her place, she was stepping out of line to offer assistance to someone who needed a napkin. "I was right there", she said, and then she walked off. He felt very uncomfortable... Why couldn't he have made a quick quip to put people at ease? Something like, "I'm not taking cuts! I'm just taking over for my wife!" Now it was too late, and he could feel their eyes burning into his back. Oh, well, it would soon be over, he would have the popcorn and he could return to his seat.

I used to always sit on the first row of the school bus in kindergarten and first grade. One day I threw up all over the steps... and had to endure all the kids complaining and being grossed out as they exited the bus... they had to literally jump over it.. while I sat in the front seat waiting to go back home. Ugh. Being a kid is tough.

Default Re: Those Stories You Want to Tell

one time I was so annoyed at having to study rainforests in geography class that during the lunch break I broke in to the geography room and stole the cd

I told everyone I was planning to study, but I snapped the disk

no more rainforests!

I also stole a book from the school and never returned it

I remember it well, because on the back of the book their was a label that said " year 5", which is where the book belonged, and I replaced the year 5 label with one with my name on it

I don't have the book now, it fell apart

I probably shouldn't boast about this (actually I really shouldn't), but I've been feeling in a destructive mood lately, so I decided to trash my friends space on the cloud (you know where you can store music, stor pictures, what ever)

I caused enough damage to it that my friend decided to quit using the cloud, and I was able to get the space for myself

in my books, that is a win

Default Re: Those Stories You Want to Tell

one time in hospital a group of us decided we didn't want the food on offer, so we through it across the ward

the nurses had a lot of clearing up to do

what's more- later in the same day I told them I was hungry and I wanted food
and I was refused it

well..... I guess I don't blame them really
