A Woman Stood Up The Man Who Bullied Her At School With This Incredible Note
A young woman who was bullied as a schoolgirl got her own back almost 10 years later – when she stood him up on a date.
Louisa Manning, 22, was bullied for years at school by a group who referred to her as ‘manbeast’, called her fat and said she had ‘disgusting’ hairy legs.
But after enrolling at Oxford University and blossoming into a beautiful young woman she coincidentally ended up at the same ball as her former tormentor.
This act of revenge must have felt pretty good.
She was promptly asked out on a date and agreed – but had initiated a brilliant plan.
A woman took the opportunity to get revenge on one of her old bullies – 10 years later.
Manning showed up early to the restaurant where they planned to meet and left a note with a waitress and a picture of herself when she was 12.
Her handwritten letter got straight to the point.
She wrote: “Hey so sorry I can’t join you tonight.
“Remember year 8, when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do – I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day so I’ve decided to skip dinner.
“Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by?
“Remember how every day for three years you and your friends called me “Manbeast”?
“No, perhaps you don’t or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years after and deemed me f***able enough to treat me like a human being.
“Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.”
She signed it, “Louisa.”
According to Manning, the young man later apologized. But for Manning, “It’s 10 years too late… but it’s still an apology and it’s still amazing I got one.”
