(I sit next to an extremely irritating girl in my first period computer class. She always looks at my work and constantly taps my elbow for help. My teacher wants to help, but has to deal with these really stupid kids who are at least trying by themselves. Today happens to be a day when I have a slight cough, not a cold or anything.)

Me: coughs to the side

Her:Cough in your elbow, please.

Me: Why? I’m not coughing toward you or anyone, It’s not gonna hurt you.

Her: Um, yeah, but still, it’s rude.

Me: Well, excuse me *coughs to the side again*

(By now the girl is getting really pissed.)

Her: OMG why can’t you just cough into your elbow? Did your parents not teach you about manners?

(Now I am extremely irritated)

Me; Look, my mom DIED WHEN I WAS 2, I DON’T THINK SHE COULD HAVE TAUGHT ME MANNERS, NOW COULD SHE?!

Her: Oh-Oh my god! I am so sorry!

(She repeats this apology for a minute or so. After a silent pause, she says:)

Her: But, not to be mean or anything, can you please cough into your elbow? I’m going to Disney world this weekend, and I don’t want to get sick.

(I am still in the same class as this little prick, and am trying very hard not to blow up at her)
