Oxford third year gets revenge on her school bully who called her a ‘manbeast’
This One Naive Bully Just Picked On The Wrong Kid
Getting even on bullies who spent school breaks giving you wedgies is rarely seen outside of American high school flicks.
But brave Louisa Manning got her own back 10 years after her tormenters called her “fat”, “disgusting” and a “manbeast”.
The Oxford third year was asked out for a date by her old school bully — but she had the last laugh when she stood him up and left him a triumphant note.
Louisa, 22, was bullied for years at school by a group of her classmates who made fun of her monobrow and hairy legs.
By sheer coincidence, one of her tormenters ended up at Oxford with her — and asked her out after seeing her at a ball.
She got her revenge by arriving early at the restaurant and leaving a note for her pre-teen bully and a picture of what she looked like aged 12.
She wrote: “Hey 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.”
She added: “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 after and deemed me fuckable 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 that’s the one who stood you up. Louisa.”
Since standing the boy up, he has apologised to her on Facebook.
He said: “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.”
