2021.09.19 00:00 CaptTossAside The Tale of RatBeard: Part 2 - Tales of First Semester Shenanigans
I return again with more tales of the hauntingly horrible neckbeard who harassed my friends and I in college as well as the neckbeard who served as my very first introduction to neckbeards, at least that I was aware of.
Player 1 is me, OP. At the time I've just turned 18 years old and starting college (I started school early). I'll describe myself more in a bit. Player 2 is Bro. Bro is 20 at this point and a good guy, I'm still friends with him today and we see each other when we can. Player 3 is Angela. Angela was a 19 year old girl who was a fairly attractive nerd girl and hung around during my first two years of college before bouncing from the usual hangout spots to avoid Ratbeard. Player 4 is Big Guy. Big Guy is... a very big guy. Morbidly obese. However, despite looking like a neckbeard, Big Guy was very friendly, didn't creep on anyone, and legitimately tried to work on himself throughout college. Player 5 is, of course, Ratbeard, our dashing gentleman who will go on to make an ass out of himself as though doing so was an Olympic sport.
We have a few minor players in this tale as well. Player 6 is Ted, another 30 year old college student studying to become a teacher. Player 7 is Elliot, another 30 year old college student who ended up joining the navy during college and who was a really cool old school anime fan (not judgmental at all, more like he loved telling people about older anime series). Player 8 is Isabella, a girl in my freshman English class. She was from Spain, this becomes relevant later.
Having found the nerd lounge already, I made it my usual hangout when I wasn't going to class or using the university gym. Classes were going well and I was making plenty of new friends, even RatBeard at this point because, despite being a bit annoying, Bro and I talked and Bro mentioned that he felt bad for RatBeard since he was in his early 30s and just starting college, isolating him due to the more than a decade age gap between him and the average student. Because of that, I decided to be patient with RatBeard, at least for the time being.
Towards the end of September, I stopped by the lounge and saw that a bunch of people were playing Nintendo DS. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl had just released so everyone was playing so they could get teams together and battle each other. Also having a DS and Pokemon, I happily joined in, soon battling and losing to a bunch of my new friends while having the time of my life. It wasn't long before RatBeard entered the lounge and set up at a table to play Magic: The Gathering. He seemed annoyed that people weren't flocking to play him, but he kept his comments to himself as we had our fun. Eventually, some people broke away to challenge him to Magic. They started playing a multiplayer game and, after I was all battled out in Pokemon, I decided to watch. The people playing all seemed to have at least defensible board positions, but RatBeard really seemed to have a strong board position. He had plenty of creatures out and no one was attacking him. At one point he played a spell that did a bunch of damage to everything before playing Hallow and cancelling out all that damage to give himself a crazy amount of life, something like 680. He won that game and people shuffled to play again. I decided to join in and used my Samurai deck so I'd stand something of a chance since my Goblin deck was still weak.
The game commenced with everyone using their first few turns to set up strong board positions. RatBeard had the most open board and seemed to be keeping quite a few cards in his hand. He was only playing mana, so I figured he might have stuff that would protect him if he got attacked. After a few more turns, my curiosity got the better of me and I swung at him with my Samurai Enforcers. RatBeard took 4 damage and responded to me rather curtly. "Dude, what the fuck?" I was surprised by his outburst. "What do you mean? I attacked you." "Yea, why? What the fuck did I do to you?" The table got quiet. I was really surprised by this, since everyone had been attacking each other during this game, but apparently this was only supposed to happen with other players. RatBeard had considered himself immune from being attacked since he'd throw a tantrum if he was attacked and defeated before he could get a good board position going. I replied the only way I knew how at that moment. "Yea, we're all attacking each other. I attacked you. Deal with it." I was willing to put up with some of his flaws, but I wasn't going to not play the game just because he was ready to throw a tantrum because I wasn't going to let him build up a strong board position. He could never pull off his damage to life combo so in a few short turns he was dead and I was taken out a few turns later when it was me, Bro, and a third player. Both of them realized that I had Konda and Takeno on the field and realized I was a fairly decent threat. It was fun, but that had earned me the ire of RatBeard.
This, however, did not last very long. See, RatBeard sorted people he knew into one of four categories. First, the m'ladies, who were basically any woman who RatBeard found attractive and wanted to fu-... I mean, "date". Second, there were the guys who RatBeard did not respect and did not think had any value to him, such as being a wingman. Big Guy fell into this category, and RatBeard would treat him really poorly. Third, there were guys who RatBeard didn't think he could get anything out of directly but whom he respected, if only so that he didn't solely isolate himself in the lounge. Ted and Elliot fell into this category: people liked them a lot, so RatBeard had nothing to gain by being rude to them, but RatBeard also didn't see two other guys in their 30s as people who had anything to offer him. Finally, there were guys who RatBeard thought could help him somehow. I fell into this category, and it was why he didn't stay upset with me for long.
So an aside is in order. I'm a tall dude. Really tall. Well over six feet tall, and I've been over 6 feet tall since I was 12 years old. I also went to a very fancy high school, where I was out of place for being one of the very few kids who wasn't super wealthy. Don't get me wrong: my parents worked hard and I never wanted for anything, but kids who were considered on the lower end of wealth at this school had a parent who made both my parents' annual salaries in a month. I was able to attend due to a combination of academic and athletic scholarships, playing both Tight End and Fullback for my high school football team. I'd normally be the guy used to make a contested catch or to run in for tough short yardage to get the first down, and because I was a tall guy, I could do that. I needed to bulk up in high school though, so I spent plenty of time hitting the gym and putting on muscle. I also learned how to dress for school events, since the kids at my high school always dressed well, so I had to take a crash course in not looking like I dressed myself in the dark and buy trendy clothing.
You may be asking yourself why any of this is relevant, and the answer is simple: I clean up well. I'm no model, but when I put the effort into my appearance I look rather good. I carried these habits into my college classes, where most guys would just wear t-shirts and jeans, and doing so is what caught the eye of Isabella. She spoke fluent English despite having lived in Spain her entire life, and she was quite attractive. Because I didn't dress like a slob and was in shape, we ended up talking fairly early in the semester after we had been assigned to give each other feedback on our first papers for English class. This, of course, was a massive ego boost, and I'd often meet her for lunch on campus. We started to spend more time together, until one fateful day where RatBeard happened to walk past the table where we were eating lunch. "Hey OP! Who's your friend?" RatBeard said that second part in a slow voice that I'[m sure he thought was seductive. "Oh, hey RatBeard. This is Isabella. We have freshman English together." RatBeard extended a hand to shake, but Isabella merely shook her head and apologized, claiming that she doesn't shake hands while she's eating because it's poor manners or something. I wasn't certain if she was taking shot at RatBeard because if she was, it was subtle. RatBeard didn't flinch, however. He started talking about literature in order to sound smart, something about how HP Lovecraft was such an amazing author due to the lore he created. RatBeard went on about this subject as Isabella and I traded looks at each other, trying to figure out what was happening. Eventually, Isabella finished her food and said "Thanks for lunch, OP, but I'm late for my next class. See you later." She quickly headed out, and I couldn't even blame her for lying about having another class that day.
RatBeard, of course, tried calling out for her number before being ignored and turning to me. "Hey OP, you think you can give me her number?" Thinking quickly, I also came up with a quick lie to save Isabella from RatBeard. "Sorry RatBeard, but we haven't traded phone numbers yet. Besides, that's something you should ask her for, no?" RatBeard's head sunk, but he didn't seem too upset. He said that he'd see me later as he went off on his own. I apologized to Isabella when I saw her and that seemed to smooth over any discomfort she had from that situation. Unfortunately, that wouldn't last. RatBeard had taken to looking for me around campus and soon found out some of the places Isabella and I liked to go for lunch and, on one fateful day, even found what classroom we had for freshman English. He was like a shadow, we couldn't get rid of him, and he'd skip class just to stalk us around so that he could try to woo Isabella. I tried to talk to RatBeard and tell him to leave us alone and that if Isabella wanted to talk to him, she would. This led to him saying "Come on, OP, I'm only trying to be nice! Why are you getting so touchy over this girl?" We argued a bit, trying to explain to him that I liked her and that he was being very creepy, but he refused to listen and just accused me of trying to make him look bad to Isabella. His stalking continued, and this creeped her out and began to sour any chance of us having a relationship, leading to about halfway through the semester when she told me that she was going to drop the class before the withdraw period ended. I was surprised since she and I were doing well in the class and she told me she'd have to take another class because she couldn't stand RatBeard following her around. I mentioned that class would suck without her, and she gave me a strange look. I asked what the look was for and Isabella didn't mince words. "Look OP, you're cute, but not cute enough for me to deal with RatBeard. Sorry, but you aren't worth it." After class she left before I could say anything else to her, so I just left as well. I considered going to the lounge, but when I was passing by I noticed RatBeard in there. I was pissed at him but didn't want to cause a scene, so I just went to my dorm, got changed, and hit the gym.
For context, at this point, I thought I had been singled out by RatBeard for his odd behavior and wasn't aware of a lot of the other nonsense he was pulling behind the scenes. He was being incredibly rude to Big Guy, constantly insulting him when they were in the lounge and no one else was around. He would constantly try to hit on Samantha and Angela, even though he was more than a decade older than them both. He had two faces, both of them sporting a horrible goatee, and he'd use his more public face to try to seem like he wasn't that bad of a guy while doing things to people one on one where if they tried to say anything, he could lie about it and gaslight them. The first blows against people in our group had been struck, and soon we'd begin hitting back, but that is a story for another time.
For now, I've been your narrator, and I hope you've enjoyed another thrilling entry in the saga of RatBeard.
