Here’s hoping I don’t sleep in tomorrow morning & end up late for work like I did today. Only the 3rd time I’ve ever been late in almost 3 times there & it was no big deal, but I hate being that person.
“This a photograph taken from the teenager (shirtless guy) named Austin Schafer’s Twitter account, of a kid being tied up and beaten by upper classmen at Columbia High School in Nampa, Idaho.
This is a recent photograph and one where the school’s authorities have not taken action yet. Remember this kid’s name and repost this picture.
The Neanderthal trash who are bullying him deserve to have this picture plastered all over the Internet for prospective college admission offices to see so their career pinnacle can be asking me which kind of soup I want at Olive Garden.
If you’ve been a victim of bullying or know someone who has, please repost.”
Dang I live 5 minutes away from there
Those guys are sons of bitches.
I am sure many of my followers have seen this photo on their own dashboard. I reblogged the photo with my own comment, but for this, I didn’t want the original tumblr post to receive any more notes (Over 85,000).
Let me just be blunt. If you think this photo is an act of bullying, you areWRONG. That boy in the photo is the younger BROTHER of another guy on the team.
With the help of media coverage, acts of bullying are seen more and more in the public eye to the point of where it’s obviously a problem. This is good because it makes bullying into a serious issue. More and more people are taking a stand to bullying. The problem, however, is when photos like this get released and then a whole shitstorm happens.
I get so irritated when tumblr users will just read one story online and reblog it, not looking at any other sources, adding phrases such as “disgusting,” and “Let’s make this fucker famous”. Really what you all are doing is ruining a bunch of kids’ lives who didn’t do anything wrong.
I have two news sources explaining the photo. The school district is well aware of the photo and have no reason to take any disciplinary action.
If you don’t believe me yet, fyeridan, who originally posted the picture on tumblr which went viral, made this statement:
Okay. I really need to get this out quick. So um last night I posted a picture and text that I found of alleged bullying. It got blown way out of proportion and as it turns out, it seems that this incident was in fact, not an act of bullying. In this article here , it explains they were just goofing around. I cannot express how sorry I am about all of this, and did not intend people to necessarily get this riled up about it. Especially now that I have learned the truth. And I hope that none of this gets any of the kids in the photo a bad reputation and I hope it does not affect them negatively. That’s why I really ask for everyone to reblog this that reblogged or saw the other post to get this out there. I regret posting that picture, and I am sorry.
What irks me is that you all get so overwhelmed in this idea to fight bullying that you don’t look at any of the facts and will send this guys and his friends horrible messages.
Wyatt, one of the wrestlers has been receiving death threats not only to him, but his family. HOW IS THIS FUCKING FIGHTING BULLYING? Do you guys even get that this IS bullying? Wyatt recently made this tweet:If youre gonna send me death threats on something not true direct them at me. Dont bring my family into this. They had nothing to do with it
He also said:
“This is probably one of the scariest times of my life. I really appreciate everyone that is supporting me and [Twitter name] though”
I am so sick of this online vigilantly thing everyone is doing. You are not helping by sending these kids messages. And the death threats? In what fucking world do you get to make the judgement calls like that? And based off of only ONE photo too! Many of the comments that I have seen directed towards these guys has to do with them being athletes and how athletes are treated as first call citizens and never get in trouble. Now I am going to call out your fucking bias. Athletes are people too with real emotions (just like you guys). Yes athletes have committed crimes and have bullied, but so have people who aren’t athletes.
Here are just a bunch of other statements that have been said to these guys:
“How the fuck could you even do what you did, you sick twisted fuck. I hope you burn in hell for what you did.”
“It’s disgusting how atheletes words and actions are valued more then anyone else’s.”
“Sick of disgusting pig jocks like [twitter name] who think the humiliation they put other people through for the sake of “fun” is acceptable.”
Now, I’m asking that everyone who reads this stops reblogging that photo. Sending death threats or angry messages does not help stop bullying. It reinforces it.
The above is so true. People on tumblr often think they’re little justice crusaders and make things go viral when in reality they don’t even know the full story behind what they’re reblogging. I remember seeing this and thinking it was stupid people were assuming this was bullying when this could easily just be a bunch of kids messing around. And turns out that’s all it was. But of course internet vigilante’s have hypocritically decided that a stupid tumblr post with no factual evidence behind it was good enough reason to harass people on the internet (and make prejudice statements against people who they know 0 about).
Basically: if you reblog this shit without checking your facts, you’re the problem.
Tomorrow I get to spend the first hour of my shift handing out flyers and stuff at a little race at the elementary school near my work. It’s just going to me be me, the meat manager & a coworker who will be dressed in a dinosaur suit the entire time. Should be interesting. At the very least I’ll probably get lots of photos of me with Zach dressed as a giant dinosaur.

I see so many “stay at home moms” at my work who have nannies or frequently use babysitters during the day its ridiculous.
If there is one parent that doesn’t work and is physically capable of taking care of the children, there’s no reason you should need a babysitter to watch your kid on a regular basis. I’m not talking about a babysitter so you can go out to dinner or something, these women are stay at home parents who have nannies who watch the kids while they’re still in the house or when they’re out running errands because god forbid you take your 2 year old to the grocery store with you.
I think it’s a Mount Pleasant/Charleston thing. Some people here are privileged/entitled/lazy as fuck.
Thats horrible :( I dont even know her, but tell her I said shes worth so much more than that! Any girl who waits.. hell ANY decent girl is worth more than him!
I know, that’s basically what I told her. I’m surprised she hasn’t already broken it off with him since she usually won’t take shit from anyone especially not guys. But I guess she’s giving him another day or so to change or explain himself or whatever. I don’t even know what could possibly be a good excuse or explanation for acting like that. It’s not like he’s having a hard time readjusting to being stateside, he’s reserving this behavior solely for her.
Some of my favorite memories are nights spent at Waffle House at 2 am, days spent wandering the mall, and weekends in cheap motels in boring suburbs. All because we were together.
A friend from work started dating a Marine a few months ago, while he was deployed. They’d been friends for years & she was like head over heels for this guy, which is saying something considering prior to him she thought relationships were a waste of time & preferred hookups/fwb situations.
Last week he came home from Afghanistan & obviously she was excited about this, made him a sign, drove up to the homecoming with his parents, etc. Today she tells me that he’s basically ignored her and been a complete douche since he got back. They went to a party together and he was the life of the party with everyone else but didn’t talk to her. She showed me some texts from him, where she asked why he was ignoring her and he replied “What, did you expect me to be all over you?”. She said no, and he just replied “ok then”.
I just can’t imagine being a total dick like that to someone you’re dating and supposedly care so much about. She waited for him, she showed up for him & he’s treating her like that. Basically the vibe I’m getting is she was fine to keep him from getting bored and lonely over there, but now that he’s home & with his friends & family he couldn’t give a shit about her.
I feel so bad for her.
I contemplated showing this to Jimmy, but it would just make him want a motorcycle
“Did u see her nudes, it only got 3 notes, even after reblogging it twice”
