When she was just 12 years old, Louisa Manning horribly bullied by an older boy at school. He called her horrible names, like “hairy” and “manbeast.” He made fun of her for being overweight. The bullying got so bad that Louisa developed an eating disorder…
But come college, Louisa turned her life around. She got healthy, she looked great, and her confidence returned. And then one day, during a college sporting event, Louisa happened to bump into that very same boy who used to bully her — only now they were both 10 years older than when they’d first met.
This is what Louisa looks like now:
Since Louisa looked so different, the guy had no idea who he was talking to — but she did.
He asked her out, and she said yes.
He waited at the restaurant, but Louisa never showed. Then the waiter handed him the old photo of Louisa, and a handwritten letter (scroll below it for the text version)…
The letter read:
“So sorry I can’t join you tonight. Remember year 8, when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do — I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I’ve decided to skip dinner.
Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast? No perhaps you don’t — or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me **** enough to treat me like a human being.
I thought I’d send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.
After posting her story to Facebook, Louisa quickly became an internet sensation.
Seems like we all enjoy a story of sweet revenge every now and then.
In an update to Facebook, Louisa said that her former bully finally apologized.
