So I´m a university student, and today during our lesson we were encourage by our teacher to work in pairs ( I personally like to work by myself -> less "drama"). Anyway, one of my classmate asked to work with me, and of course it would be rude to say no, since this is a very new class with a lot "strangers". So he took the opportunity to sit next to me and together we went through our homework (which was to translate different phrases to the language we are currently learning). When that was done we are supposed to write it on the whiteboard and then correct together with the whole class. While going through the homework he was lliterally on a different page... Everything was wrong and different, which of course made me question my own work. Furthermore, while correcting our homework with our teacher this guy would sometimes raise his hand, read from my notes (without permission) to ask if it was okay with my sentence that was a bit different (another alternative) while pointing a tme....
What? Why? Just why?
Why are you A) reading my notes out loud without permission? B) asking our teacher if that alternative is okay while pointing at me, to make sure that if something is wrong it would be my fault and, C) I never asked you to ask the teacher about my work. Fine if you read my sentences out loud, but you don´t have to point at me!! It just felt like as if he wanted people to know that I might be wrong. Luckily I passed them all, with minor faults. But still it's not okay to take others credits. At the sametime this of course might happen... in junior high school!! We are for goodness sake studding at the UNIVERSITY and you are 26 YEARS OLD!!!! I would be okay if you were maybe 12. But 26?!
What was the point with your actions? To embarrass me? To look down at me? To make sure that I might be wrong? Seriously, very mature of you! Anyway, life is to short to replay this situation. I won´t spend my energy on anger, on him. It was a childish action.
WellI hope you all at home aren´t in the same situation as I am, and that your classmates are treating you better!
Have a good time!
