A HATE STORY

A weird little tale.
  1. β€’
    In 6th grade, I was living in Southern CA.
    A sunny place. Not too far from Disneyland. We went there fairly often- it was way cheaper back in the day, and hey, 20 min drive, so, cool.
  2. β€’
    For 6th grade graduation, our school trip was going to be a day at Disneyland!
    It was going to be SO RAD to go with friends, not like, a single friend or maybe two and a parent. The whole class! Shenanigans on a grand scale!!
  3. β€’
    But one day...
    (You knew something had to be up...)
  4. β€’
    This kid. Joe. A real piece of work.
    The one who could not NOT be a rude douchcanoe every chance he got. To anyone, for no reason at all. That guy.
  5. β€’
    Picks a fight at lunch. Right in the middle of the cafeteria, over...nothing?
    With a lunk-ish but generally nice enough kid who had a lot of similar friends. Yes, they went on to form our high school football team, why do you ask?
  6. β€’
    Which erupted into a damn brawl.
    Every girl in the class scattered while nearly every boy in our class got sucked into the tornado of mostly-ineffectual kicking, punching, and (lots of) yelling.
  7. β€’
    The teachers and vice principal broke it up.
    Sent us back to our classrooms to sit with heads on desks to await our fate.
  8. β€’
    They called us out together and revealed our punishment:
    Class dance: cancelled. Field day: cancelled. Some other miscellaneous items: cancelled, but could be redeemed with Good Behavior...
  9. β€’
    DISNEYLAND: CANCELLED 😳
    No option for redemption. And we all knew: it was Joe's fault. Joe became anathema.
  10. β€’
    Souls crushed, we soldiered on. 😜
    Went on to 7th grade. The kid vanished, and even I, a quiet nerd who didn't stand out but had been selected a few times for his harassment, was glad for it.
  11. β€’
    Then one day...
    Much, much later.
  12. β€’
    Readin' the news online.
    Doot de do. (There's internets now!)
  13. β€’
    That icky Girls Gone Wild video thing apparently was the spawn of one guy?
    And he's in like, a buttload of trouble. (Not exactly surprising, tho. πŸ™„ Because, ew.)
  14. β€’
    Wait.
    It couldn't be...? Of COURSE it could though...
  15. β€’
    Google positively confirms...
    JOE FUCKING FRANCIS THAT GOT OUR DISNEYLAND TRIP CANCELLED GREW UP TO BE A SCUZZY GARBAGE HEAP WHO ASSAULTS WOMEN AND SOLICITS UNDERAGE GIRLS UNDER THE FLIMSY GUISE OF "SHE SAID SHE WAS 18."
  16. β€’
    *click* (That's the sound of the universe just ~making so much sense~.)
    Yeah, sounds 100% on target, tbh.
  17. β€’
    I guess he has an extradition warrant out on some federal charges now?
  18. β€’
    Go to hell, Joe. β˜ οΈπŸ–•πŸΌπŸ”₯
    And not *just* for the Disneyland thing. πŸ’©
