A woman got revenge on a childhood bully by standing him up on a date and having the waiter give him a powerful letter.

According to Buzzfeed, when Louisa Manning was 12 years old, she was bullied about her weight and for being “hairy.”

Manning recently bumped into one of her former bullies and he asked her out on a date.

The 22-year-old accepted the date, but with a hidden agenda in mind.

Manning never showed up and had the waiter deliver a handwritten note to the former bully.

The note read:

Hey [name obscured],

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 f******* 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.


Manning said the former bully has since apologized.

He reportedly sent her a message on Facebook that read:

Hey… For what it’s worth, I was actually here to meet up looking for a chance to meet up looking to make friends, not because you are very good looking. I guess I had it coming though, and certainly don’t blame you for standing me up.

I can’t change who I was 8 years ago, and I won’t insult your intelligence by pretending that it didn’t happen, but I hope you believe me when I say I’m a completely different person now. I can only apologise and wish you the very best. I guess I won’t hear from you again but I mean it when I say that I hope you have every success you deserve.”
