I am bored in class again. We have a Grad student teaching us today and I know that "Psychological Test Reliability" isn't the most enthralling subject, but this guy is just making it unbearable. Not to mention that, after 4 PM, I can't pay attention to anything that is not my wife, on the TV, or in a book. Okay that isn't true. But today I have a question about one of the greatest anomalies in the universe... Why is it that every single classroom on earth has to have someone that cannot resist raising their hand and making the most off-topic, nonsensical comments? Not only do they do this, but they do it every five minutes. There is definitely one in my class right now. We call her "the mouth". She may just be the worst offender that I have ever seen. I can't tell if it's a compulsive need to hear her own voice or a soft sub-category of Turrets. I know that I am attacking one person and it isn't fair, but let's be honest with ourselves... we all know what I'm talking about. So what is the solution? A "raise your hand" tax? Deportation? I know! What if we got to ask stupid questions and make random comments as they try to teach a lecture about how Warcraft has improved their social skills! That might teach 'em. I'm not really that passionate about all of this but it makes for an entertaining monologue. If anything, "the mouth" just makes me more excited and anxious to graduate... but she mostly just annoys me.
