if i see a 'he only bullies you bc he's misunderstood' episode I'm gonna puke.
I remember a sort of 'bully' i had in elementary. And no, He was more like a tiny annoyance that no one really liked. Imagine a skinny midget version of eric cartman. Except he wasn't funny. He never hurt my feelings or tried to hurt me or anything gay like that he was just an arrogant little dick. I didn't end up throwing hands but something kinda happened. One day, we were out playing soccer, and my shoe fell off. Everytime I bent down to pick it up, the little twatter pushed me. Normally, I ignored shit like this because i generally didn't care. But by the third or fourth push, I got pissed off, turned around, and yelled as loud as my hairy ass could at the bitch to beat it. Well, apparently it did something. He stopped, I picked up my shoe and walked away. As I was lacing it, I saw him pulling some crocodile tears up to his mom (she was a substitute teacher at the time). , and I could hear him relay what just happened sans the pushing. She didn't give a shit.
He ended up doing drugs later on in life so I hope he's ok. Point is, this shit doesn't really change unless there's some sort of 'shock' to the status quo.
