Default Just tryin to stay out of trouble

so this kid approached me today and i guess i gave him a reason to want to fight me or something,dont know exactly what i did tho.and he approached me today and told me that and i was more shocked than scared.and he is one of those kids that i think would stab me before he threw a punch.And right now is track season and its my last chance to letter and school rules are it doesnt matter which position you are in in a fight, if your in one you are kicked out of all sports for the rest of the year. Now normally i wouldnt think twice about the kid and just be ready anytime.but i dont want to get kicked out of track.i have lunch with him and theres a good friend of mine who weighs 290 so im thinkin if i stick around him he wont bother me but the kid is crazy.

im not a big girl or anything im just tryin to stay out of trouble. any suggestions on how to avoid this kid?

Do you have anything you could take to a teacher/principle/guidance councelor? I mean, if he's threatened you, it's their responsibliy to make sure that you stay safe. My advice would be to take any witnesses you may have, go to an authority figure & put it in their hands. Make it damn clear that your worried for you safety & eligibility & make sure your parents get involved & make sure that the school follows up.

I agree, telling the authority figures about the situation may be the right thing to do in your position. However, that also has the potential to make a bad situation worse with a punk who is just looking for a fight. Sticking with your friends is always a good idea too, there truly is strength in numbers both physically and mentally. No matter what you do, just keep your guard up and do your best to not put yourself in situations where the guy has a chance to get close to you.

No matter what you choose to do I hope it works out positively for you.

Thsi is absolutely the best advice! It may seem like wussign out now, but it's smart and when you're 32 years old you'll look back and go "man, I was wise beyond my years. that could have turned out a lot worse".
If you get into a situation that you don't think you can back out of. You've got a bunch witnesses on here that you informed of the situation.

Denise, I don't think that "Go knife him first" is the best advice...

Do unto others BEFORE they do unto you.

Can't you just whoop his butt off school grounds?

Hmmm...

You could just tell him you'll press charges,
and explain that you know he doesn't want to do time in jail.

Or tell somebody at school, teacher, etc... Then they have it on record that he wants to fight and you do not. That would help your case later if he does attack you.
