In a fair and just world, all bullies would end up with terrible, minimum-wage jobs and you’d be able to laugh and flip them the bird as you drove by in your convertible.
But, as you know, life isn’t fair. At all.
However, it’s still interesting to see where former bullies end up in life.
Let’s take a look at what these folks had to say about where their childhood bullies and where they went in life.
1. That feels good.
Doesn’t work anymore.
Last I heard, she was a bartender. I saw her like two years ago and she was trying to make me feel small all over again, then she asked me what I was doing with my life, and when I told her I was getting my MFA, she kinda sputtered and made an excuse to leave. Felt good.

2. Doesn’t remember…
Oh well, moving on…
He owns a home improvement company and has a bunch of kids. Good for him. Probably doesn’t even remember the time he threw a graphing calculator at the back of my head.

3. Ugh. Not cool.
He’s in charge.
Wasn’t as much of an aggressive bully, but the day I found out the most homophobic dude of my year went on to study law and become a judge I was just like „yeah, checks out.. it’s always dudes like him..“ https://t.co/NJfiATAt7U

4. Well, that’s good.
People can change!
My high school bully went to AA, got sober, and started helping at-risk youth at a small community gym in northern California.
The other one joined the navy and when he got out became super involved in local politics championing progressive policies down in SD.

5. Hard times for all of us.
Feeling the compassion here.
I knew one girl who bullied a lot of people back then. I tried to stay out of her way. I saw her again a few years ago when she came in to the clinic I worked at for critically ill persons. She was a patient ..She was very kind, as was I. High school is hard for everyone.

6. Exactly where he’s supposed to be.
Sounds like a gem.
Sells used construction equipment and claims covid masks are for sheep. Which honestly tracks, at least based on my experience in the seventh grade.

7. What a loser.
Who does that?
We ended up being coworkers at the public library. While there, he used the patron records to find my parent’s address and send them a postcard telling them I was gay.

8. Learned from his mistakes.
Ironically last I heard he was head of Anti-Bullying program in the school district I was in back in the day. To his credit, he did reach out at one point and gave what seemed to be a very real apology and now wants to make sure others never have to suffer from behavior like his.

9. Oh, boy…
Yikes…well, hopefully she’s changed.
My middle school bully runs a female empowerment workshop. I’m not kidding.

10. Natural selection?
Might just be the case…
All my high school harassers are in Florida getting coronavirus.

11. Trying to be actors…
And in the insurance game.
My elementary and middle school bullies are still trying to be actors …my HS bullies I think stayed in VA — I think both sell insurance …

12. That’s interesting.
You never know what’s gonna happen.
He’s in construction! He would have gone into the NHL but he got arrested for dealing drugs, but fortunately managed to straighten his life out.
I ended up living in a house with him as adults. He became one of my most loyal friends.
