Have you ever been to a high school reunion? If you haven't, I have to assume it's because you're too young to have been invited to one, because honestly, there is no experience more validating than walking into your 10 year and seeing how poorly the people who made your life hell are fairing.
I wasn't bullied, but I definitely was surrounded by people who made me miserable. Most of them now are seriously sucking.
There was the guy everyone thought would go pro at football who is now selling secondhand cars. He was also SEVERELY balding for a man of 27 who used to be a total fox.
Then there's the girls. I don't want to tear anyone down too badly, so let's just say they'd aged - horribly. Most were still single and very, very desperately looking not to be.
I still looked pretty much the same as I did back in school. I got a spray tan, curled my hair and walked in their with a big diamond on my finger and a double-degree under my belt.
A little superficial... sure. Did I care? Not one bit.
It just felt great to see where everyone ended up, especially the bullies. If this story appeals to you, then check out these tweets below, because people are not holding back about where their high school bullies ended up!

He shot someone in the back with a shotgun when a drug deal went bad, then his mega rich parents bailed him out and got a good lawyer so he never went to jail. v chill.— Jono Diener (@jonodiener) July 16, 2020

He's an executive vice president of a media company and my only consolation is that he has aged horribly.— Nancy Wang Yuen 🎃👻 (@nancywyuen) July 17, 2020
Not sure about my high school bully but the kid who called me fat and gay every day in elementary school was arrested and his mug shot got shown on the news.— 👻👻J. Collin Priddy-Boonum👻👻 (@CollinEyeJoe) July 16, 2020
It was bliss.
He appears to be happily married. Good for him. I hope all the blood I spilled in the park district parking lot helped get him there. pic.twitter.com/WQ9czBzfK2— Mitch Surprenant (@mitchsurp) July 16, 2020
Got addicted to meth and aged like 40 years. It was horrible, I remember I prayed to God during high school that something bad would happen to him and I felt super guilty when I saw him 15 years later. I was like "Whoa God, I meant like...he didn't get a job he wanted"— Totally def rap, Andrew (@theschwasound) July 17, 2020

Last I heard, she was a bartender. I saw her like two years ago and she was trying to make me feel small all over again, then she asked me what I was doing with my life, and when I told her I was getting my MFA, she kinda sputtered and made an excuse to leave. Felt good.— Raven (@theravenmonroe) July 17, 2020
