The Obnoxious Student

Posted: May 1, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s 8:00 in the morning, you’re barely alive, probably hungover and sitting in class. You would give anything for it to just be quiet for the next 50 minutes. You have a pretty laid back professor so there is hope you won’t have to kill yourself before class ends. Then they walk in. That one student that’s in almost every college class. This is the student who has a quota on how many words he/she has to say each day. This is when you should just get up and go back to bed. 

Everyone has dealt with someone like this. The Student has a comment after everything the professor says. They sit there for an entire class and argue after every point anybody makes. Meanwhile you’re sitting there, barely able to understand the English language this early in the morning, and trying to think of good places to hide the body. 

In all honesty, what is it with these people? What makes them be so incredibly annoying? Arguing with college professors is the most pointless idea ever. They could literally put a slide show of their stamp collection of the screen and keep their job; I don’t think they are concerned with what some kid whose name they’ll never learn really thinks about their interpretation of Shakespeare. 

How do these kids not see every student in the class shaking their heads and rolling their eyes? Shouldn’t you be allowed to just backhand these kids? It’s not very likely that anyone in class is paying two hundred and thirty six thousand dollars a semester to hear what you think. 

So please people, go to class, sit down and shut up. The students do not really care about what you think unless you’re writing the final. Everyone just wants to go to class and daydream in peace; they don’t need to hear you freaking out about your view on evolution.
