A woman got revenge on a childhood bully by standing him up on a date and having the waiter give him a powerful letter.
Multiple news outlets reported that Louisa Manning was bullied in the past by her peers.
She said they would make fun of her weight and for being “hairy,” and said she was even called “manbeast.”
Manning recently bumped into one of her former bullies years later and he asked her out on a date, according to reports.
She accepted the date, but she never showed up and had the waiter deliver a hand-written note to him and a photo of her from school.
The note read:
Hey (NAME OBSCURED),
So sorry I can’t join you tonight.
Remember year 8, when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do – I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I’ve decided to skip dinner.
Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast? No perhaps you don’t – or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me (EXPLICIT) enough to treat me like a human being.
I thought I’d send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.
Manning said the former bully has since apologized.
He reportedly sent her a message on Facebook that read:
Hey… For what it’s worth, I was actually here to meet up looking for a chance to meet up looking to make friends, not because you are very good looking. I guess I had it coming though, and certainly don’t blame you for standing me up.
I can’t change who I was 8 years ago, and I won’t insult your intelligence by pretending that it didn’t happen, but I hope you believe me when I say I’m a completely different person now. I can only apologise and wish you the very best. I guess I won’t hear from you again but I mean it when I say that I hope you have every success you deserve.
