Bullying takes many forms; all are designed to put another person down.

I don't see a single act of rudeness, spitefulness, meanness, or physicalness as bullying...One time...to one person? It's just being mean. I was mean pretty regularly. I never picked anyone specific to annoy, tease, or injure on a regular basis. I was usually being mean as payback for some other incident (or maybe perceived slight...there's no telling what was really going on for the other kid) that had happened to me or a friend. I got in a handful of fights...usually b/c I had said something to an adult...the incident was ignored, and I was pushed over the edge and wouldn't let it continue without letting the other person know if they really wanted to mess with me that b/c I easily outweighed them by 50 pounds and was at least 6 inches taller than they were that I could resist pretty hard. (I hit my growth spurt earlier than most of my peers...by the time I was 14ish, people were finally catching up.)

I had exactly 2 interests in school. My violin & reading. And I didn't bug others...until they bugged me. If it was annoying enough I would tell my teacher...if they laughed me off or said, "just ignore it"...I wouldn't wait for them to handle it.

I didn't think it was fair that we went through all those conflict resolution assemblies...and had teachers ignore us.

I agree with it needing to be a pattern of behavior to put the bully label on someone. Whether it's repeated mean-ness or violence towards one person or several incidents spread over several people, that would qualify as bullying IMO.
