The way it works is as follows: Each generation pride themselves to be the best that has ever existed. The millennials of today think they have what it takes to take over the world in big part because of the technology that we have in our hands. A few decades ago everything was more complicated and now they handle everything in a silver platter. We may know more about technology than past generations but that doesn’t mean we are better than them. Kids nowadays have lost some manners. There are things that each member of a society should now, it’s just the way it is and yet there are some kids who refuse to go by the rules. Good thing that one person decided to teach this kid a lesson.

Someone Should Teach Him A Lesson

Going to the subway means fighting for your sit time. Especially if you have a long ride ahead of you. however, as normal people, we only take one sit so there is as much as space as possible for the others. Well, a teenager somehow thought he had the right to take three sits just for himself but one person that was in the same wagon would not tolerate it.

Rudeness 101

Many times we have been witnesses of things that happen when we are on a bus or a train that makes us feel uncomfortable. But again we are in a public space so it makes sense that not everybody will behave the same way as you would.

Disrespectful

Some passengers are extremely disrespectful towards others and decide to use other free spots to put their bags, even if that means that other passengers won’t be able to sit. Some people even put their music so loud that all the wagon can hear it.

Selfish Passengers

There are things way worse than just putting your bags on an empty seat such as putting your legs! So when someone kindly asks you to move your legs so that they can sit and you say no, that is simply unacceptable, disrespectful, and should not be tolerated.

Looking For Trouble

Regardless of your approach, one can never know how the other person is going to react to your comment. They can get up defensively and violently. Would it be worth it to get in a fight just because of a sit?

He’s Just A Kid

For the past decades, the rates of bullying among kids have increased greatly. Some might say it in big part because of the influence of social media and the easy access kids have to the internet. Bullying is something that can not be tolerated. The first thing kids should be taught at home is to respect others always. Well this kid’s father was for sure not gonna let anything happen to this son so he decided to do something about it and teach the bullies something they would never forget,

He’s Just A Kid

He Was Bullied

Our victim is Joey Mason, a regular kid who enjoys going to the park, playing football… However, he was bullied every single day no matter what he did. Usually, he was bullied at school and so he would go to the park to forget about it and find joy. However one day, the bullies pursed them and continued offending the kid who was peacefully playing in the park.

He Was Bullied

A Happy Day Turned Into a Nightmare

When the bullying started, Joey was just in fourth grade, which is the reason why he decided to get away from the kids and play with his pets {a dog and a cat). he lived ina beautiful town in Toronto by a park where he would always go to play. It 3was actually his daily spot after school. That is until one day he spotted his bullies stepping into the park, and he knew trouble was coming.

A Happy Day Turned Into a Nightmare

I Am A Victim of Bullying

Joey could not take it anymore and decided to take action. The way he did this was by telling his story on social media with the following post” “My name is Joey and I’m 10 years old. I am a victim of bullying. It hurts me very much. Please, stop bullying.” Immediately many people who saw the post got intrigued but ost of them didn’t do anything. His father had no clue that his son was being bullied

I Am A Victim of Bullying

He Felt Uneasy And Alarmed

Parents only want what’s best for us, and the worst thing for them is to see their kids suffering about something that it’s out of their control. Well, Joey’s father eventually realized that his son was going through something since he was unhappy. He worried so much that he decided to find out what was going on given that his son wouldn’t tell him.

He Felt Uneasy And Alarmed

Emotionally Despair

Deep down his father knew that from the time his son had started the new school, something was off and little by little the light of happiness was leaving him. He didn’t know exactly what was going on or what was the reason for his son’s unhappiness but it all started when he transferred schools.

Emotionally Despair

Something’s Not Right

Every single day Joey would go back home crying and his father would see it. Clearly there was something going on and Joey was screaming for help. But his father didn’t have any type of prove that bullying was the cause of his son’s unhappiness. But this wouldn’t stop him, he decided to take matters into his own hands and investigate thoroughly what was going on. And when he learned the truth he realized it was time to do something about it.

Something’s Not Right

He Came Up With The Best Plan

Each day that passed, Joey’s father was more worried about his wellbeing. It was breaking him to see his son suffering in that way. Soon enough, he would do something about it but he wasn’t totally sure of what. He designed a plan and wouldn’t stop until the plan came to life.

He Came Up With The Best Plan

What Was The Cause Of Bullying?

He spent minutes, hours, and days trying to come out with the perfect plan, and eventually, he discovered who were the miserable bullies that were making his son that unhappy. He started wondering if his teacher was cooperating with his classmates or if he was aware that Joey was being bullied. To clear all his doubts, one day he followed his son to the park after school was over, and then is when he knew the truth.

What Was The Cause Of Bullying?

His World Turned Upside Down

He just couldn’t believe that the safe place where his son was always happy, was starting to become his worst nightmare. Like every day, Joey was playing alone with his ball when the bullies approached him. Only this time there was someone else in that park.

He’s The Target

No one knew exactly what Joey had been the target of these bullies but what’s clear is that wherever he went, they followed. However, Joey was such a strong kid that he did his best not to pay attention to the insults. But the bullies would not give up and decided to go onto the next level

He’s The Target

Joey Was In Trouble

Poor Joey was a sweet kid who was never getting in trouble or annoying anyone, which made him an even easier target for the bullies. For the rest, all was fine but soon enough they would learn the truth and Joey was in big trouble.

Joey Was In Trouble

Someone’s Watching

At school, Joey would not defend himself as he was one against a whole group, and the rest of his classmates were just bystanders afraid of being bullied themselves. the teaches didn’t think that it was serious, but Joey’s bullying went beyond the school doors. Little they knew that there was someone else at that park watching everything.

Someone’s Watching

It Escalated Quickly

The bullies decided to take the ball aways from Joey and had no intention whatsoever of giving it back to him. The situation escalated pretty quickly and there was no one there to come to the rescue. Whoever was looking thought it was just kids playing around and didn’t think anything serious was happening. But the thing is that this was real and it was bad,

It Escalated Quickly

It’s Not Getting Any Good

One of the bullies screamed at Joey “Hey kid, a nice ball you got there. Can I see it?” and before Joey knew, the ball was taken away from him. Joey tried hard to fight back and told them “its mine!” but the bully wouldn’t stop and said  “Come on, just give it to me, man. It’s just a ball.”  They still ignored the fact that they were being watched.

It’s Not Getting Any Good

It’s Time To Step Up

The person that was looking at everything was still hiding waiting for the right moment to step in. The oldest of the bullies kicked the ball to the other side far away from Joey and the man decided it was time to end this. Joey’s father came into action.

It’s Time To Step Up
