xor90 Posted March 3, 2017 Share Posted March 3, 2017 I'm a freshman in college and needed a good place to study coursework, so I decided to check out the math tutoring room. One thing to know about me is that I'm introverted practically to the point of being asocial -- I used to study in the library, but people were constantly interrupting me and having to repeat the "I have a boyfriend, please leave me alone" line everyday is really tiring, so I avoid the library now. The math room is small and quiet, a great atmosphere for study since there only a dozen or so people in it at a time. The tutors are great, they're extremely professional. They won't bother you unless you bother them with a question first. Except one senior tutor/professor in his mid 50's. He sat next to me and said "Oh wow, semantic security, huh?" but I had my headphones in while listening to my video lectures, so I had an excuse to ignore him. Today I went back, and this same professor is there again. He interrupts me constantly within the span of only one hour, constantly making me to remove my earbuds so I could listen to him, while I'm clearly trying to complete an assignment, make incessant and trivial comments. Comments not even based on the graduate level material I was studying. About my appearance. Did I know I looked like Lucy Liu? Look, here's a picture of her on Google. Did I know that she's in the Charlie's Angel's films? Look, here's more pictures of her on Google. I must drive a nice car. Do I enjoy drinking wine? At this point a student approaches the guy with an algebra question while I'm slowing packing my backpack to leave. The first thing he says to the kid before he sits down is that he's getting off of work soon, and obviously this is aimed at me. I feel really uncomfortable and creeped out about the whole thing. How do I make people just stop and leave me alone? Link to comment
