Zzz-ing in Class
Throughout my years in the college classroom setting, I have seen it all. To be honest, not much bothers me in the classroom. Although, one thing really “grinds my gears.” That is students who sleep in class.
I am sure most students have fantastic excuses as to why they fall asleep in class. I’ve heard “I was working on a paper all night” to “I was up late studying for a midterm.” No matter what the excuse is students should not fall asleep in class.
To those that sleep in class, what in the world are you doing? Seriously, what are you thinking? If you are tired as all hell, stay home. Do you realize how foolish you look, your head bobbing, trying to stay up? Not to mention, how disrespectful and distracting it is to the professor and fellow classmates. Why show up to class if you’re just going to fall asleep. Stay home, in your warm comfy plush bed. Don’t make an ass out of yourself.
I have heard many students who fall asleep say, “At least I am in class.” Really, are you in class? If you’re sleeping in class, your pretty much not there. Go to class if you are fully awake, willing to listen and learn. You could even go to class just to meet up with your friends. What’s up fellas?
So please, please don’t show up to class and fall asleep.
