Sometimes taking the high road is admirable, other times it’s just foolish and gets you walked all over. The OP wasn’t ruthless, so I say more power to her.

@mandypop:  One can’t help having an opinion. You can think what you want to, but you can choose to not voice it if it will hurt someone’s feelings.

@MIBEETOWED:  

feeling glee and acting smug because someone gained weight and had a child isn’t an opinion. Its taking joy in someone else’s perceived misfortunes – which is the root of bullying behavior. 

but whatever, if I saw some girl I hadn’t seen since HS and she looked me up and down with a grin on her face and then walked away, I’d probably just think she was really wierd and not talk to her again, rather than thinking she was enjoying my weight gain.

I had a small little crew of girls make my life a living hell for being skinny. They accused me of having an eating disorder, and would go tell the nurse they saw me throwing up after lunch. My teachers ignored it and would always just blow me off by telling me “they were just jealous”.  

If I were to be at all concerned with how much those chicks weigh right now, let alone feel all happy to see them be a less than ideal weight (whatever the fuck that is anyway), all it does is validate the facts that a) girls are nasty and judgemental to each other over weight issues, and b) that if I cared enough after all those years to take joy in their misfortunes, I was the one with issues.

I’m with mandypop. I was bullied more than my fair share in school and it messed me up for a long time, but I pulled through and moved on with my life, and eventually forgave the people who had made my life hell. I’ve run into a few of them since, and I’ve had no problem being civil/friendly each time. IMO succumbing to the desire to give your bullies a taste of their own medicine just shows them you haven’t moved on as much as you would have them believe.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  

yeah…its a shame, so many of us girls have been victims of weight-based cruelty from our peers, and yet, so many of us don’t hesitate (or even celebrate) dishing it right back out to others. Its a nasty cycle.   🙁

I’ll just be frank, I think that was a bitchy thing to do. I’m sure she realizes full well that she bullied you, only now you’re the bully, and you’re an adult.

To me, there’s a difference between bullying and laughing at the cruel irony that life throws at people. Being scared to got to school, hurt everyday by someone that you have no control over and feel an overwhelming sence of fear at the hand of someone else becasue that how THEY get there rocks off is different then inadvertenly calling someone out for being a bitch.

The girl the OP was talking about was being a bitch in highschool. Bet she understands now that making fun of people for not looking like the ideal is a bitch move.

It’s not like she’s running arround the gym telling people the girl is wasting her time becasue she’s just fat. THAT would be bullying.

I am supporting OP on this one because I believe in Karma and this girl had it coming. Turning this into “I am insecure about myself because I gained weight after high school and she’s targeting me” and “OP is just perpetuating weight bullying” is not what this post is about. 

OP didn’t search this girl out to “stick it to her” on purpose. Quite frankly if I ran into the girls in high school that made fun of me, I wouldn’t really care to give them my time of day now…and yes I have moved far on and act and behave like a mature adult.

@MissFlowerPot: She still made an overt gesture by looking the woman up and down before responding and running off. That’s no better than the people who would stare at someone in class and then whisper about them and giggle.
