Unhappy Does this make me a snitch? - May 7th 2014, 08:56 PM

One day in Gym my teacher was absent and there was a substitute. A guy from another class decided to skip and came to mine. My friend and I were playing bad mitten, ya know minding our own business. The sub realized he was skipping and told us to go tell the security guard. Then, the guy who was skipping started following me and asking me why I'm gonna tell. Blah, blah. Now, for the past couple of months he's been calling me a snitch out loud to everyone. I know you're a snitch if you tell on someone when it has nothing to do with you but what about in my situation? I don't know if telling the sub, "No! I'm not gonna!" Would've been a good idea?...

I apparently have a class with him now as of today and he outright called me snitch while everybody was there. Everybody was all staring and my friend laughed. e.e. Quite embarrassing. I really wanted to just start crying my eyes out cuz I'm a wimp (with low self esteem) but I kept them in until I went home, THEN I bawled my f'n eyes out.

Hey there and welcome I'm sorry that this is happening to you. As far as I'm concerned, you did what a teacher asked you to do and the guy either can't or doesn't want to deal with the consequences of what he did. You don't deserve what he's doing to you, but you did the right thing. It might help to talk to the teacher in this class to let them know that there is a problem with him and that he won't leave you alone and see if that helps.

Welcome to TH!

As mentioned above, you did what an adult asked you to do and this doesn't make you a bad person. The other guy was skipping class. Knowing the consequences, he went ahead and chose to skip class. His actions aren't your fault - you were just kind enough to help your substitute teacher out! If he continues to treat you like this, try talking to someone that you trust about his behavior.

You're not a wimp. If you're having trouble with low self-esteem, try to reward yourself for all of the things that you accomplish through out the day! Remember to take some time out of each day for yourself so you can do something that makes you happy. Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to talk!
