20 Things That Need To Stop Happening In Lectures

There’s no rule book for how to behave in lectures, but there is a certain etiquette. And so, when people do these things, you are perfectly within your rights to bestow upon them the judgement they deserve.

1. When someone brings offensively smelling snacks with them.

3. Or your neighbours hog both of your arm rests.

5. When someone obviously has a cold but they brought no tissues with them.

thanks for nothing
