I don't even know where to start with this. I'm pretty much shaking in anger and frustration.

It started today when my friend played a gig and borrowed my amp in school. All of that went great and it was a good day at the end he said I could take the amp home and so I thought why not.

On the bus none of the regular people I ride with were on and usually the upper class students get the back seats such as myself and it goes down by grade. Anways i'm the only one there except for another friend infront of me and so we're just standing and talking. Then these pot heads (no stereotype they were just pricks who happened to smoke dope cause it was "cool.) Get on and take the back seats like they own the place I don't care.

However one of em' starts banging on the windows as hard as he can and then starts to bad mouth me and make fun the of the fact that I have an amp and just about anything else. This pissed me off ALOT however after such a good day why let it get to me, he was clearly trying to get a rise and snickering with his friends.

So I just ignored it for about ten minutes until they got off, however it took just about every nerve in me to keep from punching him in the face and even now my hands shaking as I type.

Was I smart to avoid a fight? I really wish I had done something but it seemed stupid to give this guy satisfaction and get in trouble.

Not only that, it takes a MAN to walk away from a fight. Good on you for being a real man.

shoulda lipped him back, stoners aren't very smart...get a rise out of him, if he throws the first punch then kick the **** out of him, self defense there champ.

Sounds like it wasn't worth fighting... he'll probably get into a fight with a mirror eventually...

Your bus has a social hierarchy? Why do you not just sit where you want?

But yes you did the right thing. I wouldn't have fought, good that you didn't stoop to t heir level, it makes you as bad as them.

2 thumbs up for taking it like a grown man. Imagine what would happen if you fell for it and got violent.. You may wish you had done something to him now, but the truth is you'd wish otherwise if you got up and konk him in the face.

dude you should have beat the **** out of him, thats what i would have done

You were outnumbered, they woulda kicked your arse and stolen/trashed your amp.

So yeah, good call.

Just sitting there was a bad move, imo. I mean, you're obviously TRYING to ignore them, and the fact that you were struggling to would've made it funnier to them. A better move would've been to not say anything for the first minute or so, think of something clever to say to tell him off, and shut him up.
#22
You did the right thing, but i would have just made him look stupid...i dunno...i have a way wkith words and can usually make anyone look at things my way.... or i would just bring my guitar AND amp to school and when on the bus again, just be like "this is why i brought my amp BITCH" and SHRED THEIR NUTSACKS OFFFFF

It'd be stupid to get into a fight while you have your amp. That's like asking em to kick it in.

I wouldn't call it a hierarchy, it's just sort of an assumed thing all the 9th graders sit together towards the front and it just goes up. Even so i've never followed it or made made anyone sit somewhere, that's why when they went straight back I didn't care one bit since I always take the same seat every time and mind my own business.

However the way they started acting was repulsive.

Thanks for all the feedback though, i'm not second guessing my decision now.

I hate to break it to you, but you probly did if he ****ed w/ u and got off free. If it was on the bus i really dont know wtf people are talking about when they say they couldve ****ed up your amp... I mean unless you like handed the damn thing to him. I believe in respecting everyone unless theres a good reason not to, but if someone ****s with you... In my opinion if anyone seriously purposely messes with you to get a cheap laugh with his friends or whatever to make himself look cool, nothings better than kicking his ass in front of all of them.

/2 cents though

yea, I believe every bus in the US does that, when I went to school, the older kids sat in the back, and the younger kids sat in the front.it's not really enforced by anyone, but it makes sense. you fit in better with kids your own age, and the younger, more likely to cause trouble, kids are up front by the bus driver more easily supervised.

lol why would you fight bc of that?? see, these people probably knew nothing about you, and were just saying things that probably made no real sense, or things that dont really pertain to you. also, its probably their habit to try and knock on peolpe, but who are they to make fun of someone?? if anything, they should be made off by trying to generalize someone and make fun of them w/o even knowing them. i think the problem lies in no whether or not to get in a fight, but whether or not to even get angry. you basically make youreself angry when people are trying to make fun of you. if anything, i woulda felt sorry for them, because they depend on pointless hasty generalizations to make themselves feel good or to gain self esteem. next time, try and analyze the situation differently: instead of infereing that they are assholes who should get beaten up, maybe infer something like they should really try other ways to get their self esteem up, theyre only hurting themselves. works for me :-D

^ Makes a lot of sense very good view point and your right. One of those guys who i've seen a few times gets treated lbadly by the rest of em I think. He once came on with staples in his leg and said his "friends" did it.

These guys were also a year under me I think. No respect...

BTW I was infact out numbered there were four of them. The guy was a douchebag but
I probably wouldn't have one the fight if I started something.

I remember once I was standing near the door of the bus when some stupid kid starts giving me lip for some stupid reason. Obviously I ignored him, he was smaller but with his friends; it didn't bother me much anyways. When he got up to get off the bus, he came up to me, staring me down the whole way, and as he got up to me he turned to go through the door, so I tripped him, he fell down the step and rolled out of the bus, and the bus driver closed the door and drove off.

Poetic, almost.

If there was a fight, you had an amp.
