WE ALL KNOW

There is a girl in my chemistry class that I CANNOT HANDLE. She always is sitting behind, no matter where I sit.

Basically what she does is answer obvious questions really loud. Questions that are 100% common knowledge.

Examples include but are definitely not limited to:

Teacher: "....and then came the General Theory of Relativity from..."
Obnoxious Girl "Albert Einstein!"

Teacher: "And does anyone know where the English system of measurement came from? What is a foot anyway?" (There was a picture of a 12 inch ruler with a foot next to it on the screen)
Obnoxious Girl: "It is the size of an ancient foot. Oh and England!"

Teacher: "Well, how much is a foot?"
Obnoxious Girl: "12 inches"

Teacher: "How much is a yard anyway?"
Obnoxious Girl: "Three feet, or 36 inches."

WE ALL KNOW. I was extremely close to whipping my head around and letting her know that everyone knows. And if she continues this behavior I will be forced to tell her that unfortunately she is not a genius, and the teacher will never be impressed with her wealth of common knowledge.

this is terrible. but i hope it's teaching your professor a lesson in how to word things in statement form.

the next time she speaks raise your hand and tell the teacher "this is all your fault."

I just imagine every one of these girl's answers is shouted in a panicked voice.

I have never understood the idea that people will think it is okay to make an entire room HATE them. Do people like this have no social skills?

She really does shout in a panicked voice.
