I'm in a physics class this semester. I have had a hard time enjoying it because there are a lot of kids in this class who talk while the teacher is talking. As a former teacher, this drives me completely nuts. The worst part is that the teacher does nothing about it, and seems to remain blissfully unaware of the distraction for the other students. This has been a constant all semester but it reached all new heights of ridiculousness this week. A guy in my class brought a guitar with him and actually started playing it during lecture. He played for at least 15 minutes and nobody said a word to him. I don't even know what to say about this, but I know I'm glad it will be over next week!


  1. that is horribly disrespectful! maybe your teacher wants them to learn this lesson on their own..

  2. Weird. I had the EXACT same experience at NCTC when I took physics a while back. So frustrating. The class was split about half and half between kids who couldn't care less and talked and/or texted thru class, and those of us who were actually there to learn. I was almost moved to violence on several occasions.
