People Explain How The 'Shy Kid' In Their School Suddenly Snapped One Day

Almost every school has that one kid, the "shy kid," who never says anything during class time or prefers to eat by themselves off in the corner. While keeping to yourself isn't a crime, and it's perhaps something they prefer for their mental health, there are kids who won't leave well enough alone. They think it's somehow their job to pester the "shy kid" until finally, one day, they break.


Reddit user, u/CLSE_Proximity, wanted to hear about what happened when the shy kid broke when they asked:

What did the "shy kid" all of a sudden do at your school?

A Performance To Remember

I was friends with the kid in school who was relentlessly bullied. He was seriously strong and shredded more than Chris Hemsworth's in Thor Ragnarok. He was very awkward and shy, but one day he decided to jump out the second floor window of my afrikaans lesson. We had a single floor classroom right next to our second floor class.

He jumped onto the roof adjacent to our class, then proceeded to dance on the roof for almost 2 minutes. Jumping down after he was finished. Came back to the classroom like nothing happened. No one noticed him doing this, so he did it a second time. No one noticed the second time either. Sorry Stephen. Your attempts to be cool were in vain.

A Rough Ending And A Happy Beginning

There were 2 kids.

The first kid was bullied by everyone, even the f-cking teachers. One day the kid just snapped and threw a desk, one of those metal three-sided individuals desks with the attached chair, through the second floor window.

The second kid was a young man who never really spoke but he got on stage at the talent show and sang the most beautiful opera I've heard. Kid got A scholarship to the Yale School of Drama where he's currently getting his doctorate.

Chekhov's Water Balloon

I have no idea why but one day he came to school with a huge bag full of water balloons and kept it in the middle of the classroom. He didn't say anything or do anything afterwards to cause some water balloon fight but that's exactly what happened tho

The Coffee Cup Is The Final Straw

This really snobby girl would always yell at the quiet kid for putting stuff on her desk (like his folder or something touching the sides) - pretty rude in my opinion. Well one day she placed a Starbucks cup on his side while not paying attention, he picked it up and chucked it across the room.

Broke And Finally Asked

"Kid" was 19 and mentally handicapped. He had very few friends, shy, but he was a damned sweetheart.

One day, a week from prom, in front of the whole cafeteria, he asked his crush to prom. It was adorable, he had a sign, people were recording it, and everyone cheered when she said yes.

I mean there was also this kid who interrupted a (American) football game at our school, stole the ball, then outran all the players around the track. After like 2 laps he scaled the fence and he was never seen again.

Good Lord.

Threw sh-t at the bully in the gym locker room. Like...produced the sh-t, reached in there and got it, and zinged it. I can't remember if he hit the guy or not.

Holy Forking Shirtballs...

Showed up at school with a Dasani bottle full of Everclear, drank it at lunch, and got sent to the office. They put him in a separate room with just like a desk and an office chair, he puked several times in a circle around himself cause he was spinning in a circle, then anyone outside the door heard him repeatedly falling off the chair and then complaining about the puke.

Same guy always wore a fishing vest full of random sh-t in all the pockets and once in geography class this kid was pissing me off and Fishing Vest was like "You want me to stab him?" and I assumed he was joking so I was like "lol yeah" and he asked what I'd give him for it, and I laughed and pulled out this CD (it was Guster, I remember). Motherf-cker walked up to the annoying kid, pulled a sharpened fork out of his vest and stabbed the kid in the hand. He got nerve damage. Then he demanded I actually give him the CD.

One Insult Too Far

The guy was in band and I went to the band room to pick some things up. Another "popular kid" was bothering him. The shy kid got a clarinet case and cracked his skull into the corner of the room. Me and 5 other kids had to pull him back and he got arrested. I think he's still in Juvie/county jail. The popular kid lived but he had to have surgery and he lost his band scholarship

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

People Describe The Darkest Thing They've Ever Done That They Don't Regret

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
