Yesterday, some "guy" on the Rumsey bus "exposed" himself to me. I mean, NASTY! And now he keeps saying crap to me!!! Will and his best friend Matt both wanna fight him now(LoL)....But still, what is this world coming to when a guy thinks he can get away with "exposing" himself to a girl?

Tamma, call the police!! This is a crime, not just an annoyance. And YOU don't have to put up with it.

Committing another crime (assault) is not the answer. Call the police.

When our sixth grade went on a trip to Washington DC, some dude exposed himself to my friends and I in a restraunt. SIXTH GRADERS!!!!!!

There are sick people in the world, but just remember that the good people outnumber them! Keep smiling!

sigh....some things just never change. When I was in jr high (more years ago than I care to remember lol) my girlfriend and I had that very same thing happen to us twice!
It's sick that some people feel the need to do things like that.

Lovebug-   How was I supposed to know you were only sixth graders???    (only kidding of course)

Seriously though, Tamma... learn that it's not always the best idea to simply bash someone's head in.  We have brains for a reason, so use them, before smearing someone else's all over the pavement.

*sigh* Its not me doing it...but I am getting tired of it...this guy keeps talking about how pale I am, how small I am, how short I am, an well, how "flat" I am....I mean hes talking about things that I can't help, and making me feel lower than dirt about it. Its like he choses the things that make me feel the worst about myself, and makes fun of me for it. It gets so bad that sometimes *I* just want to punch him in the nose...but *I'm* not a violent person. And JHS seems to not do anything about anything like that. The last time I was in the office for something like this, the assisstant principal just laughed at me, and sent me back to class. I'm just happy that I only have 2 more months to deal with him.

I'd write his mother a letter - tell him what a jerk her little boy has become!!! Believe me, she'll take care of that attitude!

Tamma - This person MUST be restrained from contact with you.  If he's done it once, he'll do it again... He may choose you as a repeat victim, or he could choose another.  

Either way, it's a lose-lose situation.  You can't rely upon friends to resolve it.  You need to avoid any contact with him yourself, or you can pretty much count on a repeat performance.  Even if your well-meaning friends try to help, it's not going to stop him.  

If he's verbally attentive to you, as you say, you're treading on dangerous ground.  Also, don't allow him to demean you.  People who demean others are doing so to give themselves an escalated sense of self esteem.  This guy obviously has none.  

If you don't want to go to the local police, then please.. please.. please... go to the campus authorities.  You have to stop him.. for your own sake as well as his other potential victims...  

Sorry for the ranting and rambling here... I just get pretty irked at situations like this one... Take care, my friend...

I can't decide who makes me madder the boy who exposed himself to you, or the adults who just laugh and ignore your pleas.
Go back to the office and tell who ever is in charge that they do something NOW or you will get a lawyer and take THEM as well as the pervert to COURT. When you are on a bus you are suppose to be under someones protection be it the school or city!!!!!!
Don't let anyone tell you that you can't afford an attorney. There are divisions of the court who take cases pro bono.
Please don't let your friends get in trouble trying to help you.

Ok, ew.
Do what You want Tamma, it's your decision....but if it offends you so much then YOU should take care of it by going to authorities. Don't let yer friends get physically involved in it.
Tamma will be notified of replies
