ANYWAYS!!!!!!!!!!! This is what he did to me today!

I was speaking to Gary Folchi (Owner of Precision Drum Co.) about ordering a blue acrylic 4 piece. As soon as I said that the kid runs over and says: "Why would you pay money for a piece of plastic drum? Blue is a homosexual color, Precision looks like a crappy company!" Can you believe this?!?
I then had to speak to Gary and explain to him that it was an idiot in my school, and that I was sorry that he had to hear that.

Seriously guys! What should I do??
What should you do about what? Being fifteen years old and having fifteen-year-old friends who act like fifteen-year-olds?

I guess the only thing you can do is grow up. Don't worry, it's not as bad as it sounds. The drag about it is that you have to make a living, you know, earn money and all that. When you get to that point this annoying jerk kid, because that's what he is, a kid, will have long been forgotten.

Joey, Joey, Joey,
First rule of life,
1) You will encounter many whacky people in your life.

Second rule,
2) Ignore them!
Never argue with an idiot!
Just walk away.
Your time is too valuable.

The story sounds ridiculous, but if true, that kid insulted one of the best custom drum companies on the planet.

I know what you mean. This story is ridiculous because thats what this kid is (Zack).
I was very insulted by this when he said that because of how good of friends me and Precisions owner have become (Gary). Me and Gary have been working on getting me a custom set which I WILL HAVE.
I could tell that Gary was hurt when Zack said that, so that was when my anger reached a new level.

With 'short drumstick' he is of course referring to his Wee-Wee. (Come on, you surely must know "some" sex jokes?)

;)

In other words, the guy has a confidence problem. Just ingore the twat.

Haha! This sounds like a job for.......Bully Beat down!!

Send him to "South Fla" and ask for KBadd.....first I will laff at him.......uncontrollably.......he is insecure about everything....then I will kick his a$$....then I will drum battle him and he will be embara$$ed.

Guys like this need to be "beaten down" so THEN they can be humbled. I am sorry you are going thru this!

Yes I am in the Admiral Farragut Academy Marching Band. He marches with a snare as well. But I am going to quit band to got to SAT preparation class. (Standardized Assessment Test).

Wow. This guy just manipulated you into 2 months of detention. He effectively kicked your arse. Beware he just may manipulate you out of band and out of competition.

You asked a question of those here, received good advice and ignored it.

You lost.

Hopefully this abject failure will wise you up.

Dear Wy Yung, if you read any further:

So, he WON! Hurray! :)

Now, the thing with bullies and nutcases like these, is that they are impossible to eradicate. Just like in virtual life, in real life one should just not feed the trolls. You will always keep on encountering idiots in life, the best thing to do is to let them be happy in all their idiocy. They're not worthy of your attention.

I disagree. Fighting is never a "win". I would expel any martial arts student who got into a street fight. That this boy was so manipulated as to be drawn into a fight is the failure.

Fighting is never the answer, you may think it is, but that annoying guy at the pub you take a swing at later in life might have a defective vertebrae and a single hit could kill him.

That is a long prison sentence for a dispute.

At 15 detention may be the worst you have to deal with, but assault charges are very real once you get older, better not to fall into bad habits.

The principal shouldn't have let you off, I'm not saying that you were wrong about the guy being a jerk, but by letting you get away with something like that he essentially encouraged you to use it as an answer to your future problems.

Yes, I have done martial arts and yes, Wy is completely correct.

Effectively all that has happened here is that some wanker kid says his "dog is bigger than the OP's" is all. If that's a case of "bullying", I'll eat what's left of my hair!

This pettiness happens every day of the year, all year round where children are concerned......although this level of pettiness is more common amongst 5 year olds. At 15, I'd really have thought one would be better equipped to handle it......evidently not. If anyone seriously thinks that this is a serious issue, then they need to toughen the hell up......and fast. Or you're just not gonna make it through the next 60 years of your life.....pure and simple.

This thread is not worthy of our attention. Sound advice was given long ago, it should have been noted and the OP get on with the rest of his life. I can't believe this (non) issue has carried on for 2 whole pages.

Joey, you really need to move on mate. You're 15 now dude....time to start acting like a big boy. You'll meet far bigger tossers than this guy along the way.

As a pacifist I can't disagree. However, if this has stopped the kid's behaviour, I'd say Joey, well, uhm, 'won'.

You can always exaggerate your interpretations.

Anyway, within no-time everyone has forgotten about the incident and this topic. Proof that annoying people are not worthy of one's attention. Now people, let's move on.

He hasn't talked to me once except for one time in the hallway, he said "Hey, whats up?"
We had a civilized 30 second conversation, and I went off to class.
The incident is over.

Well, that's too bad, and a bit anti-climactic. I'm going to miss reading about the adventures of fifteen-year-old Joey182, adventures worthy of the pen of such a one as, say, Mark Twain.

Aw, well. Something tells me that there are more annoying jerks out there, and that means more adventures in store for Joey182.

Keep 'em coming, kid, we just might get a series out of this, at least eight episodes. I'm already thinking Fox.
