I read in the newspaper yesterday, a short entry about bullies.
The argument went, that a one-off episode of bullying doesn’t make someone a bully – the suggestion being, that anyone can lose their temper and strike-out at another, cause misery, torment.
I don’t know what I think about this.
What I know is, that all bullies are arses, whether they bully once or habitually;
I guess the corollary is –
Not all arses are bullies, but all bullies are arses.
