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

    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.
    I take it's nothing worth while then.

    Is it? I mean holy **** sHUT UPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

    Basically, I told these two girls in front of me to quieten down because I'm trying to make use of the £9000 that I have to fork out for University and they really wouldn't- So, I did the most logical thing at the time which was to kick the pole that connected their seats together really hard and they jumped and turned around to look at me with really offended faces and-

    Okay. I'd be lying if I said that my face was straight as I apologised n i c e l y BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT it wasn't because their faces were hilarious and it served them right I mean they don't talk very much anymore when I'm sitting near them with my group of friends.

    But idk guys a lot of people have given me mixed opinions about what I did; some have said that they deserved it, others have said that it was too childish for university, seeing as I had just started this September and was supposed to be mature by now.

    Opinions?

    Also, how do you deal with noisy people in your lectures? I'd love to try those methods out sometimes.

    Oh yeah and I'm generally a chill person and I don't really go around kicking people's chairs /for those that may tell me to take a calmer approach in life

    THAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANKS


    EDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: I did tell them to pipe down a couple of times and even told them to shut up so yeah I didn't just randomly kick their chairs HAHAHAHAHAHAH

    I have witnessed a lecturer loudly telling a student to 'GET OUT' before!

    Sadly it seems like the two girls in front haven't realised that you are supposed to gain this academic qualification called a degree at the end of Uni and seem to think that Uni is a 3 year p*ss up/.

    The fact that you apologised made it like...
    If you did it for a valid reason and you told them sternly more than once to stfu then you could have done it and straight faced them or cut your eyes.

    Why would you apologise?

    I'd have cut off their hair if they did not stop talking after I told them to pipe down.

    You're okay.
    Pretty sure that counts as assault...

    Or maybe that's just in the US.
