LAS VEGAS. NV–A mother is heartbroken after she claims bullying drove her 14-year-old daughter to take her own life.
“All of our lives are going to be missing one key factor, and that’s Carla,” said Carla’s mother, Natika Bird.
Natika Bird can’t bare to think what her life will be like without her teenage daughter, Carla. She says she was the type of girl who was reserved at times, but mostly happy and bubbly.
By Ashlyn Sully of the Ashlyn Sully Blog. I work as a waitress. Last night I had a table of about 6 extremely drunk guys come in. Although they were not my table, every time I would walk by them to fill someone’s drink (They were sitting in a table right next to our pop machine) they would cat call me. I started out by ignoring it, why fuel the fire, right? However, when one of them blurted out that I am a “fine piece of ass” my patience was wearing thin. I turned around, smiled, and stated “Yeah, my boyfriend thinks so too.”
In all honesty, looking back I should have just remained silent like I had been doing. But hindsight is always 20/20. The guys then all started laughing and saying that they were just trying to “compliment me” and that I didn’t have to be “such a bitch about things” *This is when I started getting angry and probably should have walked away, but sometimes I have a smart mouth.*
