I've heard many stories about creepy gym teachers, cruel students, etc. in gym class, and figured it would be fun to moan about gym class together. have a pity party of sorts. I'll go first. when I was in 7th or 8th grade, we had to do a hundred meter dash or something like that. I can't run fast at all. and I was never very popular or had many friends. when it was my turn to run, the other students started laughing at me and jeering, then started throwing rocks at me. apparently I was seen as being stuck up, which is why I was so unpopular. but the truth is that I skipped a grade and entered school early, and was significantly smaller than the other kids through middle school. and I was afraid of people who were taller than me (weird phobia, I know). I was afraid of everyone, so I didn't talk to them.
