So I'm in a Naval lecture, and have been for the last 40 minutes or so. And the guy two seets away from me has the sniffles.
I'm not talking occasional innocuous sniffs, which a good proportion of the class are engaging in on occasion. I'm talking big, loud, long sniffling. The sort with the lower harmonic of the pharynx getting involved.
The problem is, what can I do except cringe each time it happens?
I don't have any tissues on me, and despite other members of the class also periodically cringing, it seems that none of them is in posession of tissues.
'Stop being a whiny little shit.' I hear you say. 'When you're in a lecture of a few hundred, there is bound to be someone who is slightly diseased.'
But that's the thing. There are 12 kids in this lecture. We ALL know who the culprit is. The LECTURER knows who the culprit is. And this is a THREE HOUR LECTURE. THERE ARE ANOTHER TWO HOURS OF THIS YET TO GO.
