22. A bully arrives.

1. A bully got nasty today and shoved an eighty year old man over. That, and the resultant shouting and name calling soured an otherwise pleasant meeting for Mr B.

The bully’s excuse?  ‘He shoved me first.’


Children show more maturity.

We can’t call the bully a heckler. Hecklers allow the speaker to speak, they show a modicum of wit, and they don’t try to hijack a meeting with attention seeking strategies. The man was just a bully. Unfortunately, he’ll be back, because he succeeded in spoiling everyone’s enjoyment.
