    Messing with some kids

    So last night on my run, some jr high/early HS kids started chanting "Fat ***" at me. I thought I was the only one out so I looked up and I hear "He heard us" and I casually turn down the sidewalk they are on. They took off sprinting and went into a house and I kept going.
    Never seen these kids before in my life, and other than wearing a Cyclone stocking cap, I had no other clothes on that would be even somewhat controversial.
    I know I'm fat. My nickname has been Tubby since jr high and I played OL in college. Their comments didn't bug me a bit, but I would love to mess with them a little bit in a legal, non child molestor-type of way. Any suggestions?

    *I live in a pretty nice neighborhood in northern Ankeny so I have no doubt these were some spoiled kids.

    Just kids being kids. Not seeing any upside to continuing the nonsense.

    Is that what "kids being kids" is now? If kids are yelling this stuff at adults no wonder there is such a bullying problem in schools apparently.

    So your saying the OP is getting bullied for being a fat adult. I think the kids are actually encouraging him to run harder. Good job out of those kids.
    Also if the only thing my kid ever does is call someone fat. I would be fine with that. That is so minor of a thing.

    Bullying in schools isn't new, and it isn't going away.

    Kids saying stupid things has been around forever. This time, it happened to be you. It'll be somebody else tomorrow. Life will go on.

    Man, if I said something like this as a kid to my brother, I would have gotten in trouble with the parents. I hate to think what they would have done to me if I said this to an adult...

    In short, I blame parenting nowadays.

    If the comments didn't bug you then why do you want to mess with them? Let it go.

    If I ever find out my kids said something like this to someone there will be hell to pay. I don't care who you are, its not something you do.

    That thought crossed my mind for about a half a second. As someone who works with young people every day I have too much to lose.

    My wife and I are unable to have children, but I can guarantee you that I will be "that guy" in our neighborhood yelling at kids who I catch misbehaving. No place for that. If their parents either don't catch them or don't care (or both), I will do my part and make them accountable - hell, somebody has to!

    Now GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!

    I would ask "How Fat"? Seriously it's funnier when fat people run. I am fat. I run. I don't need to come and ask advice on how to get back at a bunch of 10 year olds. Then tell everyone how you were bullied. Did they make you eat the white poop? Just curious.
