(Dec. 8, 2014) – She says she was bullied mercilessly as a child—and years later, one of her tormentors asked her out on a date.

She got revenge by standing him up and leaving behind a scathing letter, according to Buzzfeed.

Louisa Manning said she was bulled about her weight and for being “hairy.” One of the people who bullied her asked her out.

Manning accepted, but she had something else on her mind other than dinner and drinks. She never showed up for the date and left a handwritten note to the man.

Hey [name obscured],

So sorry I can’t join you tonight.

Remember year 8, when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do – I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I’ve decided to skip dinner.

Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast? No perhaps you don’t – or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me f******* enough to treat me like a human being.

I thought I’d send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.

Louisa.

Manning said, to her surprise, the man sent her an apology on Facebook. She said it was “amazing” even though it came 10 years too late.

Hey… For what it’s worth, I was actually here to meet up looking for a chance to meet up looking to make friends, not because you are very good looking. I guess I had it coming though, and certainly don’t blame you for standing me up.

I can’t change who I was 8 years ago, and I won’t insult your intelligence by pretending that it didn’t happen, but I hope you believe me when I say I’m a completely different person now. I can only apologise and wish you the very best. I guess I won’t hear from you again but I mean it when I say that I hope you have every success you deserve.”
