So, recently I started at a new work, where I met a "friend" who I've known way back from school.

Background: he used to bully me a lot (often racially) and he often had backup. He is a witty guy and can get many to laugh with him when he is making fun of you. Needless to say, I was very weak at that time.

Anyway, some years have gone since, and I know genuinely believe that I should treat people accordingly, but on the next level. Like if someone messes with me, it's okay to mess them up.

So, now, I meet him every day at work, and he does start to irritate me, jokingly busting my balls etc. I had already decided that, if/when he goes too far, I'll set him straight.

So, one day, he was still making fun of me and the other colleague was also laughing. I tried to ignore it, until he jokingly hit me on my back head and then I completely lost it. I hit him with my elbow in his stomach. I turned around, and he was still smiling, though kind of sad and looking down. So I slapped him, just to show him I was serious. He looks up, shocked. I still kept eye contact. Then he just walked away.

Next day, he said sorry and has been behaving very nice ever since.

What would you guys have done? I feel like, there are 3 levels. Someone messes with you, and:

1: You are too weak/"nice" to do something about it.
2: It affects you, and you answer accordingly.
3: It doesn't affect you (indifference), and then you can choose whether you will do something or not.

Bottom line is, I am happy with myself :evil:, but still kind of bummed out that I wasn't on level 3 in this particular situation. For some reason, I wasn't as witty as him and our history definitely could have been a trigger. Anyway, this and other sitautions have shown me that I can have a big ego, sometimes it feels good to let it control me.

He crossed the line when he hit you...so I feel you reacted appropriately and accordingly. Well played in my book. 8-)

Indifference only goes so far.. and is only meant to be used mainly towards people's opinions and verbal bullshit.

Not to be used when someone is physically testing you. Well done. 8-)

Typical bully psychology. If you get a good hit on 'em, they usually back down and find easier prey. I know this from experience.

This guy is an insecure bully, and a weak one at that.

Good job.
