    Spend lecture times complaining about being there, and wishing they were still in bed.
    Complaining when lectures are cancelled, as "they've paid for them".

    ..Both comments being heard from the SAME people.

    You buy two Dominos pizzas cause its Tuesday and you're not a scrub.

    Eat one and place the second in the fridge to eat the next day.

    Wake up starving looking forward to munching pizza.

    Enter the kitchen and find an empty box lying on the table.

    Sacrilege.

    Grab an axe and murder everyone in their sleep.

    people who don't contribute in seminars. If you don't want to be here then leave. Don't sit with a face like a slapped a**e in every seminar.

    Edit: 9 people are going to have fun when they realise they lack the necessary interpersonal skills to get a decent job

    This is annoying me so much. I must look like a right nerd because I'm the only one that contributes in seminars. I just get bored otherwise.

    So annoying.

    Waking you up at 1.30 then 2.30 then 3am then 4.30 when you have to get up and leave for an exam at 8am.

    Stealing food.

    Turn up late to a lecture and ask you to move up to let them sit in your seat.

    Not doing the reading and then saying 'we were never taught this'.

    Turn up to classes saying they're still drunk, especially in 2pm classes.

    Leave crumbs everywhere. And glitter, so when you walk from the kitchen to your room, it sticks to your socks and goes in your room as well.

    Writing an essay 12 hours before the deadline and getting a 1st.

    I'm one of those people who doesn't say a huge amount - I tend to naturally condense what I say into short contributions and everyone else in my group waffles and rephrases a lot, but my tutor always says "is that all you have?" to me...does my head in...

    It really bugs me when people turn up half way through a lecture.
    Ok 5 minutes late is excusable, but when there is less than half the lecture left?!
    There is one girl on my course who is always late.
    Today I was a KFC with a friend for lunch and she was there with her bf. We got served about the same time.
    We finished and got back to uni with at least 15 mins to spare.
    She walked in halfway through the lecture. Just plain rude!

    Same!
    I don't understand why people do courses that they obviously have no interest in.
