people who leave the lecture
I am always perturbed by people who leave the lecture while I'm lecturing. Now I'm not saying it happens a lot. But when I think of the boring rubbish I've endured so as not to hurt someone's feelings who I never expect to even have to make eye contact with ever again... and who has probably already demonstrated they have no particular interest one way or another in whether there's an audience or not... and when I am firmly of the opinion that anyone who has their feelings hurt by someone leaving their lecture (I mean if it was their heartfelt testimonial of something, that'd be different, or their opera recital, but a lecture...) yet still I am perturbed by people who leave the lecture when I'm lecturing. Two done it today.
