    Since you want to stop them from doing it again, and to show your not someone who can just be walked over.

    Therefore they won't do it to you again for the cheap lulz and you can listen and learn more carefully than you would have with paper being tossed your way.

    The reason people do this kind of thing is to provoke a reaction, so getting angry at them would only make them want to do it more, ignoring them is the best and most adult thing to do because eventually they will just get bored.

    You need to learn how to walk the fine line between standing up to bullying and playing along with banter. Once you can accept it as banter, brush it off or even reciprocate, it'll be a whole lot easier.

    And yes, they sound immature, but they are sixth formers. They're immature by definition.
    throwing pieces of paper is bullying,

    knowing how teens think, they'd consider him a pussy for reacting to something small like that.

    Well i was in physics yesterday and 4 peopel behind me decided it would be hialrious to throw bits of paper at me and especially when it hit the back of my head found it impossible to contain theirselves with laughteer. I didn't react by the way. ANyway, other people in my sixth form on a geography trip thought it would be hilarious to play fight each other. Due to bad amounts of people in a room i ended up not being able to share with my mates and ended up with some other people. They were up most of the night play fighting in their boxers and attackign each others bunk beds by sneaking up tand then hitting each other or wrestyling each other to the floor.

    I don't enjoy this kind of thing..infact i hated it..those nights were some of the longest in my life.

    Am i boring or geeky or whatever for not liking things like this? Or are they actually immature? Everyone seems to be like this apart from about 2 people whom i am friends with.

    I feel so lonely..im going to spend the summer on my own because i don't really seem to connect with people.

    Am i a freak? Wierd etc?

    Please help because it's kinda annoying me.
    most likely you're boring i think no offence

    If I was to put myself in the situation of throwing the paper and they sat there and did nothing they would look weird and i'd probably lol more at the fact we can continue to piss him off with him trying to ignore us.

    Commonly people think the best thing to do is just shut up and do nothing, but I disagree completely. It's how you react that matters. Turning around and throwing a hissy fit ain't gonna do you much good. But turning around and showing your authority / joking with them will do you better in the end.

    WHy should i waste my time even looking at them if tehy decide to do that though? Seemed pointless tbh when i coulda just listened and learned..
    Case in point, I'm afraid. Just turn around and give them a big silly toothy grin, this shows you're not taking them seriously.

    Oh and OP they are immature, and all the people on here saying that you are "just boring" or "jealous coz you're not involved in the fun" are immature too. So don't worry.
    Just ignore them.

    Is it? Really? He should just throw it back at them.

    I do understand how unpleasant it can be though. I got a whole grade at AS lower than I wanted because I wasn't able to work in lessons. Teacher had no control over the class and it made it very difficult.

    yes the majority of sixth form students are immature....

    having just finished sixth form i can honestly say im glad to be moving on.

    but maybe you do need to lighten up a bit. With the play fighting on the geog trip you should have got involved (On my year 12 geog trip i took part in the same thing)

    They are very immature. That never happened at my college. And yup, it would bug me too... you're not a freak or weird for thinking that tbh... and join a club/ new hobby for the summer? Even summer courses is a idea...

    When I find jerks do stuff like that to me I tend to ask them politely if they'd stop. Funnily enough it almost always works.

    I used to have the same problem back in secondary school. I always used to believe (rightfully) that my classmates were terribly immature. Play fights used to break out in class every time the teacher wasn't there, and UFO's were also quite common. I've always been the unpopular and boring kid at school and I guess I got used to it, so I did't make much of an effort to change it.
    Even now at Sixth form, I still find people my age doing stuff that would be common of a ten year old. Some girls are quite *****y to me, and when they found out that I was a Harry Potter fan it got worse . These girls have a tendency to break out into giggles in the middle of our lessons even if nothing remotely funny has been said. I think it was because of me, but I can never be too sure.
    I suppose that nothing much has changed, but I have made new friends and interacted with other people, so I have my own friends, who are also not involved in the whole immature *****y-giggly-squiggly attitude which is common of girls, even at our age.
    Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is: stick to your group and you'll be fine. There must be someone that feels the same way as you do. Just learn to appreciate what you've got and you won't feel so lonely. You'll notice that the really popular kids at school are really not that cool, and that their idea of fun is teasing others and stupid play fights. In other words, they're not worth knowing or mingling with. The nerdy ones are the ones that end up doing all the cool stuff.
    Good luck and hope this helps xx

    Yes they are immature, but thats life. Though the real distinction is between "idiot" and "not idiot": how mature you are doesn't matter... there is nothing wrong with having fun, unless it makes others uncomfortable.

    Things change once you get to uni - you have much more choice over who you socialise with.

    You are not a freak. You just live in an environment where knowledge and behaving sensibly is unfashionable. When you end up rich and successful, we'll see who has the last laugh. I was in the same situation in secondary school. I wish there were more intelligent people in the world. I don't even see the significance of the existence of such imbeciles.
