Idiom Scenario 2:


John spent most of his years in junior high school being bullied.  All the other kids would tease John and call him names.  The other kids would play pranks on John and torment him relentlessly.  John was a small child and never fought back.  John was always the last child chosen when teams were being picked for sports and games. Before John entered high school, he told himself that he was going to start fighting back.  John told himself,
"I'm not going to let them kick me around anymore."
