Not only was this embarrassing, it is quite unnerving to see your professor that angry at your class. I was not using my phone but still, it is embarrassing to be grouped into that anger.
Please, please, please college/high school etc. students respect your teacher’s rules. I know class may seem boring or you’re just not interested today or you’re tired but that does not give you the right to be blatantly disrespectful. You can wait to check your phone, I promise. If you’re in college and you’re on your phone during class than what’s the point? You are literally paying to be here, to learn and you’re wasting it on your phone?
Please stop, please be considerate and just think of how you’d feel if you had something really important to say and no one would give you the time of day.
Until next time!
