Times change, people change. I'd ask some careful, polite questions of how they are and how their life is going and most likely let them know in my responses that the past is the past. THEY may recall the bullying and either feel remorseful or still antagonistic about it.
Depending on their approach will color the tone of my speech but not the general language - we've both grown up, I've moved onto other things and am better for it.

"Fill it with Diesel"

Back when I had the Diesel Mercedes, I pulled into the local gas station and saw they had a new person on the pumps. It was the leader of the gang I had been tormented by in Elementary School. I had finally been annoyed enough to fight back and he was the only member of the gang I had not managed to beat up. They school staff had pulled us apart and sent us to the Principal's oiffice so the fight with him was a draw.

He didn't recognize me... but oh it was a lovely moment for me.

You're awesome. I still occasionally have revenge fantasies.

Oh, I won't claim I don't....but I really wasn't all that bullied per se. The one time I really was, I caulked the kid's locker shut and we were best friends through most of High School after that.

I was bullied a lot in elementary and middle school, and how I'd react if I saw a bully now sort of depends on the bully.

Creepy. I had a dream about this exact topic last night.

of all the things i can hold a grudge over, something from my childhood like being 'picked on' is most certainly is not on that list.

(of course, this would all vary on the degree of 'bullying' and really, i don't like the term bullying for the really serious extreme stuff anyway.)
