So how do you ignore someone....

So how do you ignore someone that think your trying to copy or cheat off of them? I sit next to this girl in my 8:00 a.m. 101 History class. I know I do pretty well in the class I have a B+ average right now in the class I know I can can do better I'm not really into Antiquity like Ancient Rome and Greece. I'm only taking this class to boost my GPA after getting a C+ in Geology. What your best way to ignore jerks like that?

Re: So how do you ignore someone....

I'm confused -- do you think she is trying to cheat off you or does she think you are trying to cheat off her? I guess the answer to both would be the same: don't sit next to her.

Re: So how do you ignore someone....

Yeah, elaborate a bit more, has she said something to you? ... like "stop copying my work"


Is she hot? Haha you're probably checking her out and she thinks you're trying to look at her answers

No she isn't hot at all and she hasn't said one word to me. I don't go for chicks that think I am some kind of a cheater looking to get a head in the class. This would make for a perfect Seinfeld episode.

This is a 101 history class there aren't going to be other seats available in the classroom. I'm not making this complicated, I don't know where you get that from? I was only asking a question.

I don't understand what this means. Do you have assigned seats or something? Just get to class a couple minutes earlier and sit in a different spot before the room fills up.

Where are you from if you don't know what 101 classes are? 101 classes are introductory classes. There are no assigned seats, but most students wouldn't like it if they see someone sitting in their spot since the first day of class.

Re: So how do you ignore someone....

Introductory or not, college classes are for adults, and if an adult can't deal with someone sitting in "their" seat, maybe they need to grow up a little bit. If the other student doesn't like that you're in their seat, too bad for them. You're paying for your education, and if a different seat will make the learning experience better for you, take advantage of it.

There were times in my college career when I would arrive to class and find someone sitting in my normal seat? You know what I did? I sat somewhere else.

If she hasn't said one word to you, why do you think *she thinks* you're cheating off her? (If that is the issue at hand)

That's just silly. I doubt that things have changed all that much in the 5 years since I graduated university, and back then nobody cared where they sat. Just sit somewhere else and your non-problem is solved.

It a community college, students there get mad over the silliest things including the older adults who are of a lower social class. Everyone sit where they like, nobody ever sits anywhere else. If you sit in their spot they turn into Archie Bunker from All In The Family. I'm not going to get into a verbal argument with spoiled teenager or some trashy person. I'm just going to try my best to ignore her if she thinks I'm trying to copy her notes or answers.

^OK, then the problem is solved. I guess we can close the thread, then? You just ignore her. Simple.

During my time in college, people only "cared" where they sat if they needed a power outlet for a laptop. And politely asking for a seat close to an outlet was a quick, easy process that I never saw someone say "no" to.

This thread is just odd. If the girl in question hasn't even said one word to the OP, why does he think she suspects him of attempting to cheat off her in the first place?
