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?
There are a few things you could do, and some have been mentioned. You could:

1. Try talking to her about it.
2. Move to a different seat.
3. Politely let her know that she can move if she's uncomfortable.
4. Just pay attention to the professor while you're in class and ignore her. That would mean no talking or making eye contact. And when you have a test, just turn away from her to focus on and write on your paper or what have you.

I hope this helps.

(And if you're really worried that she might accuse you of cheating and feel like you can't move, talk to the teacher and have them sit you somewhere else. That way you don't have to be the "bad guy" that took someone's seat. )

Wow, you are just the most awesome person ever. Except for that whole not being able to handle basic human interactions like an adult thing.

Ah, so not even your situational awareness is as good as you've let on.

Are you going to answer Kreacher's question about how you know that she thinks you're trying to cheat without saying a word? Did she give you an angry glare? Hide her paper?

Because your current pattern of being vague and incoherent and unresponsive and then lashing out at people responding to you or asking questions makes it look like the whole point of this thread is simply to provoke a reaction.

Um, because you haven't done anything to deserve being banned?

You say this woman is being paranoid, but I have to admit, you're sounding a bit paranoid yourself. How 'bout some details, so we understand why you believe she thinks you're cheating (or trying to).

Shit, kids didn't get annoyed with me when I "took their seat" in high school. I wouldn't think a college class would be that much different. Sit somewhere else.

Try sitting down and turning 20 degrees away from her. If she is sitting to your left and you are right handed, you can use your left arm to block your vision of her. Kind of like this.



Sometimes there is nothing you can do about. There are self centered jerks out there that think they are "all that" and everyone else is scum.

Give me some more details about the situation and maybe I can come up with better ideas.

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

Why would anyone care if you're looking at their notes? My suggestion is that you're possibly imagining that. If she's concerned about you copying off her during quizzes and exams, you can always move during days that they're scheduled, but it's probably easier just to make sure you're only looking down so it's obvious you aren't cheating.

My history 101 classes were always in giant lecture halls so there were plenty of other seats, but I'll take your word that there are no other seats.

When I was a kid we built our walls out of cereal boxes. This would have the added benefit of providing a convenient snack during class.

i suggest you follow her home on a dark night, sneak up behind her and whisper into her ear ''your handwriting is illegible''. this will totally solve your problem.
