We all know how the most....well, "quirktastic" individuals like to sit next to me (or rather, I sit next to them) in classes. Today, the kid I sat next to in psychology took the cake.
I came in late, straggled to a free seat, trying to climb over legs, backpacks, and whatever else people put* at their feet, and sat next to this kid. He seemed friendly enough...maybe. Well, that inkling of friendliness left after a little while.
Now, I like my psychology professor. He's pretty funny, even if all he does is teach off Powerpoint Slideshows. Apparently this kid didn't! After everything my professor said, this kid came up with some sort of retort muttered under his breath. At first I was like, "Meh, whatever." But after an entire class of this, I was ready to just turn to him and say, "Will you just SHUT UP!" That's mean, I know...which is why I didn't do it. To top it off, he was totally looking over at my screen all obnoxiously, so I kept trying to think of some random thing to pop up on my computer that would disturb him. The only thing that I could think of was pictures of my friend on Facebook without his shirt on. Not terribly disturbing. He was all buddy-buddy with the girl next to him, too, who was the girl looking over my shoulder a few weeks ago.
Well, misery loves company. Except substitute the word 'misery' for any other word. Swears are allowed. Be creative.
Oh, and coming soon....a non-negative, non-rant post!
*Can I just say, in trying to spell "put" right here, I honestly typed out the word "poot." I think I've gone Irish without realizing it.
