Oh, the drama...
Yes, I mean every one of those smilies. Needless to say, too many women in one room day in and day out for HOURS at a time is not the best idea in the world.
So, for those who are interested, let me give you the Cliffs Notes of yesterdays events.
One lady (we'll call her T) blew up on some members in the class because of talking during lectures. This is not the case in the actuality that she is saying, and it really pissed two of the people off. These people approached her, and she left the class and went to the counselors office. During break a little while later, she returned, and those two ladies were called into the office. They were gone for an hour, and returned during our second break.
After the first break, during attendance, my study partner asked me to see my notes. She couldn't read something I had written, so I clarified. T decides to yell "Um, I am so tired of all the damn talking! I just want you to know that I just left the office and I reported all of you for disruptive behavior! I am just tired of it. " Looking right at me. OK.... :angryfire: I don't talk during lectures. I can't. My learning style is listening and taking notes. If, by any chance I was doing ANYTHING else, I would not be holding steady at my 94 average. But I digress.
At this point, I must excuse myself from class before I act like less than a woman. Second break comes, and I go back into class. T is going person to person asking people to sign a petition stating the "Back Right Corner" is disruptive. This type of thing could get a person expelled! So, the five of us, including the two who confronted her, targeted in this bogus petition (that only 7 out of 42 people signed) decided to visit the counselor together. At this point, the instructor can sense she can teach no further and has the counselor come in to speak with the whole class. Like *******' elementary school! Took up our last 1.5 hours, and we have a test first thing Monday. Grrr... I wake up this morning, body stiff, head pounding.
IT'S ONLY JULY! We have ten months to go!
Too damn early for the drama!
Thanks for listening.

aw, gabriel, i'm sorry to hear this, but it's a given when you get that many women in a room...the claws will come out. like someone above suggested...ignore this woman! don't give her any fuel to add to her fire. best advice i can give: don't get involved in their hoopla, and don't talk about t to anyone in your class behind her back. it will come back and bite you in the butt one way or another. just keep walking away, and excusing yourself(like you did) when t starts her mess, just pray...the lord will handle her. that is the best thing you can do. maybe she will chill out further into it. she's probably stressed out like everyone.
keep up that a
gabs! i'm proud of ya girl! (((hugs)))
