Good for you for acting on something you felt was necessary but I don't think there's anything particularly cool about losing your temper like that in the long run.
The stereotype is a little cruel in some applications, but ultimately true - if you want to waste your time largely undisturbed, sit in the back, if you're there to actually do some work, sit in the front.

It happened to me but I was in the position of the teacher. I have a student who has a very low tolerance for noise, probably because of concentration problems.

Now, I'm not particularly strict about noise, I'd rather have a class where people chat a little, but also contribute to the class, instead of a class where no one speaks at all (usually in France, it's either the one or the other, which is a problem). So whenever I feel that the noise is getting too high and bothering the most serious students, I ask the loud students to shut up, but I don't do it systematically if there's only a little noise.

Once this student got angry, and she simply stood up and said: "Listen everyone, it's really too loud here, I'm tired of all that noise, so now could you please shut up and let students like me listen to the class? Thank you." Everyone was awestruck, it was actually pretty embarrassing.

To be honest, sometimes, I enjoy seeing students do that, because you feel a little vindicated. It makes you realize that there are a number of students who are interested in listening to you, interested enough to risk being labelled a teacher's pet and so on.
But that time, I did feel embarrassed, because I got the impression that she was doing my job, and thus, I felt a little ridiculous, as if she was doing it because I was not able to do it. Now I'm more careful about the noise, though, and I keep an eye on that student to check if she's showing signs of annoyance I do find it quite brave of her to do that, because unlike you, she obviously did not have any sympathy from the class.

I guess it's my fault for not being harsh enough with the most talkative students. But it's the first time I have had such noisy students, I still haven't thrown anyone out, but I have come very close to doing it for the first time, and I might have to do it soon. The problem is that in France, we have huge groups of about 40 students for so-called "tutorials", so it makes it difficult to deal with noise, given that it doesn't need a group of very loud students, but rather, several groups of students who are just a little loud, it adds up, and they don't realize they're disturbing people. It also makes it more difficult to identify the culprits.
Since tutorials are supposed to be classes where they actually talk, instead of just listening, it's difficult to find a balance between shutting everyone up and having an entirely silent class (which is awful), and encouraging them to talk without also encouraging a little noise in the back of the classroom.
(Also as you said, sometimes when you're at the front, you don't hear the noise that much)

I'll have new groups after January, and once I know what they're like this year, I'll probably need to lecture them about the noise from the start and make it clear that they're supposed to contribute to the class but that in those conditions they need to behave themselves, otherwise I'll have to throw them out.
Thanks for the perspective of the other side. I've had enormous respect for teachers ever since I gave up on my own teaching career. I find that I do care genuinely about educating young minds, but not enough to put myself through situations like these on a daily basis. So for those who can tough it out - all the respect.

It was very hard to concentrate since we were doing a very hard topic. Thought fuk it, they're not shutting up so I got annoyed and told them to 'SHUT UP' like Federer here:


with pretty much the same facial expression.


Thought I was going to be absolutely lambasted by everyone (didn't give a fuk though) but was surprisingly met with approval by everyone bar the loud group of people. They finally shut their mouths for the rest of the lecture. Felt like a boss.

What would you guys have done in that situation? And yes this really DID happen, wish someone had recorded it lol.


Who the fuck cares about lectures? Lecture halls are boring and the professor always talks in a monotone. Just go learn the information yourself from your textbook or the internet (unless you aren't smart enough to)

Still...good for you

I love the gif.

I'm too non-confrontational to tell people to shut up in real life (obviously not on the Internet ), so I'd probably just give them death glares and hope that they get the hint and shut the hell up.

When I went to university, such problems did not arise. Talking in a lecture was just not done.

The prof. should have told them they would get an "F". But I think that these days "F"s are considered to be a violation of the student's rights.

Unlikely, since people tend to think I'm pissed off when my face is set in its default expression.

People who go to classes to fool around are just wasting their own time and money and other people's time.

I think post-grad students are more mature in general and so they don't talk as much during lectures. It's a good thing. No one talks in this really really really boring lecture that I have too (I'm doing a post-grad course).
