We All Know This Guy…And Someday He’s Going To Drive A Very Big Truck

Standard

Xavier: “There’s this kid, Luke, in our class, and he’s such a jerk.  He’s constantly starting fights with people, but he’s the smallest kid, so people can’t beat him up because they’d get into trouble.”

Me: “Well, maybe the reason why he’s always starting fights is because he’s so much smaller, and he’s feeling insecure.  It can’t be fun being the smallest boy in the seventh grade.”

Xavier: “But then he shouldn’t TRY to make people mad all the time!”

Me: “Think about how it would feel being him, when everyone’s getting bigger, and you’re still small.  Put yourself in his shoes.”

Liam: (whispering) “Yeah, Xavier…put yourself in his teeny tiny shoes.”

  1. I entered school when my mother faked my birth certificate because she wanted to get me out of the house. I was the smallest kid in the class. It’s tough. The first grade teacher figured it out after a few weeks and sent me home. Next year I was oldest and the biggest. Much better. 🙂 –Curt

  2. My last boyfriend was the shortster of his class… They usually picked on him because he was living in Seattle and carried with him a thick Mobile, Alabama accent he had. So he learned how to hide that by adopting a “California Dude” accent; but didn’t go out of his way to picking fights. Just the opposite really… He sort of became the class clown (of sorts).
