Almost as bad as seat kickers. I ventured to the cinema (an even worse place for bad behaviour!!) last week and got my seat kicked all the way through Star Trek...still helped to feel I was on the Enterprise I suppose...

Tonight at Relatively Speaking, talkie talkie talkie, two women who were charring away, an old dear crinkly crinkly her sweeties and then another behind me and then the guy behind me opened an explosive ice cream which caught the back of my neck. I dunno. Some people.

Usually get pretty good behaviour in the fringe venues, but last week at the Union there was somebody was sat behind me who sniveled snot back up their nose every 30 seconds (obviously using a tissue was beyond them). Plus saw somebody on the opposite side filming a section on their phone.

Also not bad behaviour as such, but there was somebody in the queue who was rather loudly going on about how they had just passed their PhD and everybody would have to call them doctor from now on ........

As a final year PhD student I do appreciate the sentiment of that last one....though I'm not arrogant enough to shout it out in a public place (plus when I finally finish I plan to a) sleep and B) be quietly drunk for a week so won't bother anyone)

You don't shout it out in public, just put it on public message boards? (Sorry couldn't resist) :P

Given the rigours of the PhD process in this country - in the US much more time is granted to PhD students - one can't blame anyone for being publicly elated at its successful completion.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Or maybe he was just pleased to see you?

Or publicly elated at the successful completion of his PhD?

I don't mind people being happy at getting a PhD, it's the 'oh everybody call me doctor routine'. Outside of an academic setting, nobody cares.

Just to say that the first aid instructor who ran the course I did ( please don't collapse near me, I would be hopeless) said that she had people say, 'I'm a doctor ' when they meant academic, not medical, when she had asked for assistance. Like they thought they could help! Some people, eh?
