I have a few pet peeves that I try to control, atleast in front of strangers :P.
One of which is someone touching and or moving my chair. In my math class we have rows of desks/chairs that touch each other front to back. I usually arrive early so I can move my chair up from the one behind it and move the one in front of it up so nothing is touching my chair (not real noticeable, just a few inches). Anyway, last night the girl behind me kept tapping on my chair with her foot. She must've had a song stuck in her head 'cause it had a beat to it.
I was going completely insane. So distracted I couldn't concentrate! I got very close to getting up and moving, lol.
Teacher "2x + 4y = 17 and 3x - 4y = 6 works.....
tap tap tap tap (me "stop doing that, should I move? will it be too rude to ask her to stop? Can I stomp her foot and get away with it?"
Teacher "addition method"......
tap tap, thump thump, tap "knock it off!! I can't stand it! Crap, what did he just say?"
Teacher "equals 6"
tap tap, "dangit!!"
Teacher "or multiply the whole thing by 2 to make it"......
tap thump tap thump thump thump, tap tap...."NOOOO!!!! ahhh...I can't stand it!"
sweet relief, she leaves early!!
Teacher "4x + 6y = 4 and -4x + 2y = 11 which method would work for this system of equations?"
Me "don't ask me, don't ask me, don't ask me" hehe
