I feel so bad for the victim. I was sort of eccentric at school, more into playing the piano and reading about planes than sport and alcohol etc. The school I was at was a bit posh and my fellow pupils lacked imagination, clearly, cos I was sort of bullied but barely (I think if it had been a really posh school, it would have been a different story - those future captains of industry would have beaten the shit out of me, wot-oh!). I am really stretching the definition of the word 'bullied'. But I guess it was enough to know what it's like, and the idea of forty other kids going for you, boy oh boy. Poor thing. It must be one of the worst things about being a parent as well, cos you can help in most situations, but when your offspring is being bullied, it's much harder to help (or even know about it?). Hey ho, it is indeed a cruel world.
