    From Redditor u/UncleSaltine:

    I worked as a newscast director for my local TV station a few years back. Part of the job was making show graphics (maps, full screens, OTS [over the shoulders], etc.) for each newscast, including for the local "Crime Stoppers" segment. I prepped the mugshots of no less than three people who gave me sh*t in school for air during my tenure there. That always managed to put a smile on my face.

    No Date

    From Redditor u/PhinnaeousMaximus:

    There was a popular boy in middle school who was a total d**che to awkward, nerdy me. He'd call me names, talk to people within earshot of me about how ugly I was, and would try to physically hurt me during our P.E. class all the time. We went to the same high school, but I had no classes with him, so I pretty much forgot about him.

    Well, a couple years after high school I ran into him at a bar. I'm a lot prettier and less awkward than I once was. He hadn't grown more than a couple inches since middle school, and the face that was cute when he was 12 did not handle the testosterone surge of puberty well.

    He was acting like a nervous teenager and kept saying "Wow, you really look different," while we chatted a little. He would also not shut up about how he was in the Navy and how awesome he was because he was "serving our country" and "protecting [me] from terrorists." He finally asked me for my number and I gave it to him. He texted me the next day asking me on a date and I replied "LOL, nah."

    It wasn't my most shining moment of maturity, but it felt good to look down on that little b*stard, both literally and figuratively.

    Job Offer

    From Redditor u/SkeithxEpitaph:

    A kid that bullied me in high school (he actually gave me a black eye once and got suspended for it) messaged me on Facebook apologizing for everything he did to me back then. I told him it's OK, you were just young and didn't know better.

    I eventually got a drink with him one day to see what he was up to and he broke down on me. Started talking to me about his alcohol problems and how he was self destructive. He was getting kicked out of his mom's place and had no job. Me being the sap, I am offered him a job at the restaurant I was managing at the time. This was about two years ago

    Fast forward to three months ago: he is now a kitchen manager at the same restaurant and he asks me if I'd like to get a drink with him.

    Dude bought me and my girlfriend a ticket to Colorado and told me he will never be able to pay me back for how much I helped him, but he is at least in the position where he can try.

    Colorado was fun. Got really really high.
