Don't worry, you did the right thing. The rest of your class is obviously full of immature jerks though. Boy do I know how that feels.

Not wishing to come across as entirely too serious for my own good, but why on earth would you ever strike someone as a "joke"? It is shows a lack of respect for a person. Regardless of whether it was you or your friend who started it, it escalated to the point where your friend seems to have thought " Enough is enough" and then punched you.

You, by "...slapping each other on the back and stuff." cultivated and an atmosphere where your friend felt both able and compelled to punch you. You allowed it to reach that point. And in a very public setting at that.

Your reaction afterwards was the correct thing to do though. It was striking your friend (and allowing him to do the same to you) that led you to this situation in the first place, judging by your post.

I understand having a laugh with a friend, but just through some Simpson quotes at him or something!

Am sorry if this all sounds very harsh, but life is too short to hit someone, even in a supposed "...joke..." way (unless you absolutely have to).

As regards to your classmates, I agree with Leo, they sound immature. And just ask yourself, what is more important, what they think or your friendship?

On a final note, just double check with your friend that there was no underlying reason for the punch. As I have said, from your post it seems the slapping on the back stuff allowed the situation to escalate. But you know your buddy better than the people on this forum will, so just make sure it was nothing else.

Good luck mate, am sure things will be ok because you did the right thing in the end. Hitting someone playfully might seem like harmless fun because it doesn’t hurt him or her physically, but you don't know how it'll affect him or her emotionally or mentally. So think about it before you let it happen again. Turst me, I know what I am talking about here.

P.S. When you are in class you should be studying hard anyway with no time for such folly, ha ha !!!

males in groups (especially in teens when their bodies are constantly in flux) fight to keep the pecking order of the group in line. one of those niggily little annoyances we have inherited from our animal insticts.

obviously out and out fightig isn't permitted, pretty much no one is gonna gain dominance in western society by being the biggest brain box and argueing is going to make you look foolish, so all you are left with is slaps and punches on the arm. this kind of behavoir will always continue until it is bred out of the genepool.

callign the hits jokes is a way of covering what is actually happening for people who can't see or won't admit what is happening.

If you ask me what I would do? I'de sure hit him, on the spot though, cause I can't seem to hit anyone when im not mad enough.

What should you do? Well it's realy in how your being loughed at.

I always say that if you are in a situation where the only way to avoid it is fighting - fight and do it as well as you can.

If you can live with the situation without any real difficulties , or handle it without fighting - thats for the better.

How can having someone punch you in the face not be the appropriate time to use violence?

What you taught your buddy is that he can basically bully you and hit you at will and you will do nothing to stop him. No doubt, others in your school will soone get the same message.

At a funeral when someone has just buried a loved one and is drunk and lashing out at the injustice of it all.

When the punch was aimed at someone with better reflexes than you.

Oh heck, my fingers will get tired if I list all the times smacking someone in the chops as retaliation is not a good idea.

Situation like that should be meet with aggresion. Its asult what he did. In my eyes due to my Ju Jitsu training i am taught to deal with situations like that and meet it with SAS ( Speed, Aggression and Surprise). If the situation ever get worse, defend yourself. Is it worth getting punched? No is the simple answer.
