    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

    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?

    Well what else could you have done? Unless you could have move seats then I think it serves them right.

    Incredibly childish, yes.

    You first ask them politely and quietly, to stop talking. If they persist, a loud request for them to "shut up" will usually get a round of applause from others who weren't brave enough to do anything.

    But yes, kicking the chair is passive-aggressive childishness. You're not a bored toddler. Don't behave like one.

    If you told them to stop and they carried on, they deserved it.

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

    You're okay.

    I think it is very childish, actually speaking to them would have been the way to go.

    I'd like to say that I do enough embarrassing things to be almost immune to them; I didn't feel embarrassed at all.... more like victorious like HA I MADE YOU STOP TALKING

    But thank you for your opinion anyhow

    Although, I'm not sure if I should tell you my university to you just yet, in case you stomp up to me and whack me for being immature

    Actually, I did tell them to shut up quite loudly as well. I'm sure it wasn't me being passive aggressive, but aggressive in general LOL. Hey ho if it made them stop talking then it was a successful tactic Maybe I should embrace my inner raging toddler

    ..... 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.
