“Why aren’t you in school? I see you every day wandering around.”

“Oh, they don’t miss me,” she said. “I’m antisocial, they say. I don’t mix. It’s so strange. I’m very social indeed. It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn’t it? Social to me means talking to you about things like this.” She rattled some chestnuts that had fallen off the tree in the front yard. “Or talking about how strange the world is. Being with people is nice. But I don’t think it’s social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you? An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports, but do you know, we never ask questions, or at least most don’t; they just run the answers at you, bing, bing, bing, and us sitting there for four more hours of film-teacher. That’s not social to me at all. It’s a lot of funnels and lot of water poured down the spout and out the bottom, and them telling us it’s wine when it’s not. They run us so ragged by the end of the day we can’t do anything but go to bed or head for a Fun Park to bully people around, break windowpanes in the Window Smasher place or wreck cars in the Car Wrecker place with the big steel ball. Or go out in the cars and race on the streets, trying to see how close you can get to lampposts, playing ‘chicken’ and ‘knock hubcaps.’ I guess I’m everything they say I am, all right. I haven’t any friends. That’s supposed to prove I’m abnormal. But everyone I know is either shouting or dancing around like wild or beating up one another. Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?” 

Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Never suffer in silence. Know it can be stopped. It will be over. You’ll get there. Wherever there is. He or she will always be rotten. As will their nurturers and nurtured to come. You will be free.

    1. Thank you. I have been thinking about school bullying a lot these past few weeks & wanted to play a bit with the local dialect of my childhood. Decided to share & pleased the intended tone came across. Thanks for reading X


  1. I did suffer some bullying in secondary school as it was called then
    Bought back memories good and bad
    Love the Scottish accent of first article
    Would make great book


    1. Hi Ken! Welcome! Very sorry to hear that, although pleased to have roused some good memories at least! Thanks for the lovely compliment. I wanted to explore the use of my local Scottish dialect to set a dark scene. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts!
