The Bubble Gum Bullies

I was in the kitchen preparing our dinner when I accidentally stepped on something goowey. Guess what? Bubble Gum. And so I was yelling my nephews name, “Nicho, get your butt here in the kitchen!” I gave him a quick lecture and had him pick up the gum to dispose it in the garbage.

Funny cause all of suddent, I remembered this incident from my childhood over a piece of Bubble Gum. I think this happened way back when I was twelve in our village in Quezon City. The story started when my sister came home crying with a gum sticked to her hair. I asked what happened? And she said that there were these two boys at the nearby sari-sari store who decided to stick their chewed gum on her head, just for the fun of it. Boy, was I pissed! So right that very moment, I grabbed my sisters hand and tagged her along to confront those two bullies. I then asked her for some gum and started munching as fast as I could.

When we got to the store, the boys were still there sipping their colas. I went up to them and said, “Did you do this to my sister?” as I pointed on my sisters head with that gum.  The older boy answered, “Yes we did! Do you have a problem with that?” Thinking that he can scare me that easy. I then spit the gum I was chewing in my mouth, stick on the boys head and said, “There you have it, Jerk! We’re now even!” The two boys were quiet, and the younger one decided to run away. I then clenched my fist, put it right in front of the boy’s face and said “The next time you pick on my sister, there will be no more gum. This is what’s going to hit your face. Am I clear?” Then he fled quickly before he could say another word.

Ow golly! I’m so bad hah? But then that puts the bullies in the right place. I don’t think my sister ever had a problem with these two after. And everytime I see them both in our village, they’ll be walking on the other side of the street. I guess the gum I sticked on their heads did teach them a lesson!

    Wow, Nell, lumabas ang “cho-mach” (macho) side mo ha! 😀 Talaga naman, mukhang ang role mo talaga sa inyong family ay “ultimate savior” – hahaha!!! May your tribe increase! Have a great day (o gabi na ba dyan sa US??)!

    oo nga, pinky. bigla akong nagpaka-men, hahaha! ayaw ko lang talaga kasi ng may nadedehado sa family ko, at feeling ko kasi pag ganon eh parang tumataas ang blood pressure ko pati na rin kilay! baka nga dahil panganay ako sa amin, kaya ganon nalang ako kaprotective sa mga kapatid ko 😉 have a wonderful day ahead, God bless!

    hi nell! ganyan talaga ang mga panganay, protective sa mga kapatid. ok lang pag tayo ang mang-aapi o mang-aaway sa kanila pero pag ibang tao na, aba, ibang usapan na yun! hahaha!

    i’ve always been a non-confrontational person. pero naikuwento ko na rin sa WifeSpeaks (http://wifespeaks.com) in one of our topics for discussion na isang beses lang ako napaaway. that was when i was in 2nd grade. i was class president and siyempre pag wala ang teacher, ako ang “in charge”. e makulit yung isang kong classmate. lalaki ha! ayun, sinabunutan ko. tapos hinila rin ang buhok ko. inabutan kami ng teacher na nakahwak sa buhok ng isa’t isa. wala kasing gusto bumitaw! hahaha! 😉

    mabuhay ang mga panganay! hee hee! 😀

    i agree with you, weng. ok lang pag awayin natin sila, pero wag lang ibang tao. this spells R-I-O-T for me, kong magkaganon.hahaha!

    aba aba, may natatago ka rin palang kamalditahan hah, heheheh. non confrontational ka nga, pero sabunot queen ka naman! hahahaha, biro lang po hah. takot ako baka sabunutan mo ako!

    have a wonderful day, weng. mwaaah 😀

    i think yan naman ang tamang approach against bullies, yung i-confront sila at ipakita na hindi ka pwedeng kaya-kayanin.

    so kapag pala ngumunguya ka ng bubble gum iiwasan kong nagmaldita sa harap mo at baka maging target ako? haha! *muah*

  8. sardonicnell · October 25, 2007

    hahaha, ikaw talaga meeya! promise di kita didikitan ng gum sa buhok, kahit magmaldita ka pa. di ko yon gagawin kasi friend yata kita 😉

    tama ka dear, paminsan minsan eh kelangan talagang patulan ang mga bullies na yan at ng matuto. dba? have a wonderful week end, mwaah :mrgreen:

  9. Leap of Faith! · October 25, 2007

    Nell, so ikaw pala yung nag-dikit ng chewing gum sa ulo ko… ay, hindi pala sa paranaque nga pala ako lumaki. Anyway, I hope your sister did not give you the gum from her hair when you asked for one to chew and stick on that bully’s hair. Your sister (and your family) is very lucky to have you by her side.

  10. sardonicnell · October 26, 2007

    hello keith! i’m sure that bully wasn’t you, ang bait mo kaya hah. speaking of the gum, definitely not the one from my sisters hair. it was actually a gum i picked up from the street, yucky! kadiri ko talaga, hahaha 😀

    thanks for the kind words, keith. i think my family and myself are both lucky to have each other. sino pa bang matutulungan, dba? kong hindi kami kami rin. God bless and have a wonderful week end :mrgreen:
