We had a lovely incident in a class I teach a while back - and these are 'kids' in the 18+ range. One girl in the class' mother was terminally ill, fairly close to dying. She's sharing this with a group of the other girls in class. Their response: "ew, that's gross." Cue them actually picking on a girl for having a parent on death's door.

Couple of years ago I was going to a voluntary substance abuse support thing twice a week for my boozing, and this one lady their tried to make fun of me because, unlike many people there, I can read out loud without tripping all over my words.
Gave her the ol' "Hey, maybe if you'd have paid attention in school you wouldn't be in a half-way house right now."

I ignored bullies all through middle school, until the point where it actually stopped bothering me
then one day on the bus a guy moved up and at across from me, and when I got up to get off he grabbed hold of a strap that was on my backpack and held onto it, which was a totally new experience because nothing physical had ever happened before
anyway, I looked at him and said "let go", and he smiled this smug smile and said "no"
so I backhanded him in the face and he let go, and I got off the bus and never really saw or heard from him again
I guess either way works, but damn if I don't wish younger me had thought to try that three years earlier
