    Shaking table syndrome

    Advertisements



    Alright, when studying it would be awsome if people were a bit more self conscious. what I mean is, when you are studying on a large table, in a class or annex or whatever, don't shake your knee or other extemity since it moves the rest of the table. This will eliminate stress from others who don't enjoy vibrations.

    Thank you

    Although guilty; I concur. Thats why I try to find a cubicle (sigh) in the library and try to use gentle lateral vibrations. Works better than coffee!
    If you aint got it in your genes, sweat it out.

    Guys, if someone is doing something they are not supposed to why don't you simply speak up and say, excuse me would you please stop what you're doing! If they start arguing, or don't stop, don't say anything back just go to the person in charge of the area and get them to handle that person. Always remember that you are not there to make friends, or to get people to like you, you are there to study. I have done this several times and people learn to respect you and your private space real quick. Good luck.

    You don't want people to hate you, either. That just makes you more stressed out. You'll find life is a lot more pleasant when you do have friends who are there for you. Don't be rude, and they shouldn't argue with you.

    By the way, I like the name of the thread. Shaken table syndrome should be in the books somewhere.

    I found this most annoying during exams, where I wouldn't hesitate to call a prof over and tell them to inform the offending party that they were creating a 9.2 on the Richter scale.

    This is what I'm talking about, you shouldn't be worried about whether someone likes you or not. You are not here for that. Besides, do you really want to have friends who don't have any manners, who don't respect other people's space, who don't care about anyone but themselves. By putting this type of people in their place right away, I am now surrounded by real friends who are always aware of what's going on around them, and are not selfish.

    Why not just tell the shakers directly?
    Good luck.
