So apparently kicking someone's seat in a lecture to shut them up is childish watch

    Childish... yes. Uncalled for, I don't think so. I am regularly faced with a simlilar situation (at college) i normally start by telling them to keep it down (as you did) if they continue I would follow up with a rather agressive "DUDE". If they still insist on talking, that is when you begin tuting and rolling your eyes :yep:

    ..... I have witnesses if you want them? Oh and I'm sure some people do; including me at certain times.

    Unless you're a trained Psychologist, I'd rather not go in depth about my sudden urges to be impulsive; at least, not so publicly. It's actually a little hurtful to say that my post and replies are made up for the heck of it.

    But eh you've given your opinion and I'm grateful, I guess.
    Good that you've done it. If you've told them multiple times to shut up they deserve it.

    Ohhhhh thanks for your opinion Although, I should probably change my tactic next time if they start speaking loudly again and I'm sitting behind them LOL (although I don't think they will if I'm sitting near them......)

    I wouldn't have the guts to do what you did. Imagine if they created a scene and a ***** fight started in the middle of the lecture hall :rofl: Mortifying

    To be honest, if they did not stop talking when you repeatedly asked them to, but then they did as a result of you kicking their seat, then I think this is effective behaviour, and not childish. What's supremely childish and inconsiderate is for two people to completely disregard an entire lecture audience who is trying to learn and hold them hostage to their own bad manners.

    The problem with your approach generally OP, is that it usually makes things much worse rather than solve the problem, but if you managed to get a good outcome, then well done to you.

    How rude of you. Definitely too childish for university.

    Yes, it is incredibly frustrating to have people yapping away in lectures, but I'm sorry but kicking their chairs is a ridiculous reaction, to the point where it's embarrassing.

    What uni do you go at?

    I would have embaressed them by raising my hand and asking the lecturer to ask the girls in front of me to be quiet.

    It's not childish at all. Children kick seats for no reason. And you had a perfectly valid reason. :badger:

    Speaking of "embarrassing".
    It takes a strange individual to find a small language error "embarrassing", but not the experience of having underwear photos circulating around the only platform where they recieve any social gratification.


    The novelty of you being adept at grammar and nothing else died out in around 2009 Profesh. Try and find another forum where some may find your little quirk interesting or even just tolerable.

    Silly little man. But I suppose it makes you feel good.

    It'd take a strange individual to be embarrassed about something they did eight years ago, yet not cringe at the sight of so laughably slipshod a grammatical construction on the part of someone chiding another user as "too childish for university".

    Also, the word is 'receive'. Do try to keep up.



    "Joined TSR in Dec 2014". I guess this forum found your previous accounts eminently tolerable.

    What do you even do Profesh? Because from what I can see, you have absolutely nothing else to offer, other than proof reading skills.

    You're just a loser.

    We've established that attention-to-detail isn't really your strong suit (unlike inventing new aliases on internet forums, presumably), so that sits perfectly well with me.
