I’m a very passive guy and don’t anger easily, but……..

Whilst walking with my wife through the park, taking in the sun, enjoying the day, three youths thought it would be hilarious to head our way and kick their football at us. My wife walked away, I did not. 

“I was only trying to nutmeg you,” said the kicker. His two buddies leering as kids do, especially when they are bigger than their target, namely me. (Nutmeg is kick it through your legs.)

Now the problem was that I felt particularly hot and flustered, so I reacted. I’m quite proud that I didn’t do what some men would, instead, I did this. 

Having being a much better footballer than the youths ever will be, I took aim and blasted the ball back exactly where I wished it: let’s say I missed both his legs, if you catch my drift. 

“He was only trying to nutmeg you, ” said another.

“So was I,” I replied. “I just aimed too high.”

They didn’t try to be cocky again. 

The moral: don’t backdown to bullies, they are inherent cowards.

  1. Sounds like they got what they deserved. The problem with bullies is that they disrespect everyone and they’re very narrow minded regardless of who they pick on or why. Good for you I say.

  2. Awesome work protecting your wife. I’ve done my fair share of screaming on behalf of friends so I get that it is necessary. Even if you are peace loving, you can’t let that go. x

  3. Lol! You reminded me of my high school volleyball days. I was too short to ever beat the blockers who loved to jump up and intimidate me with their Amazon growls. I made the team because I had a bullet for a serve. You know, I discovered that sometimes the heads of tall people tend to get in the way of an ace serve. Accidents happen sometimes (she shrugs) … 🙂

      1. Yes, I’m well. Thank you. I suppose I must confess to a streak of redhead savvy in my youth. I told an art professor that I would paint his face on a horse’s a– and sell it for a million dollars one day… but I would never do that to a horse. I grew out of it 🙂
