  1. I wonder if there is an asshole : bro ratio eg for every decent person like this classmate there are 5 dickheads ready to tease them.

  2. I’ve never ever had a friend like this. Also, I’m not even sure if my own wife would do this for me 🤷‍♂️

  3. I also love that she didn’t answer the question herself. That could have given her friend the impression that the questions were too easy. It showed her friend that her doubts and questions are valid enough to be clarified by the instructor.

  4. as a teacher, this really got to me. i hope i’m never that teacher that “often taunts” a student for asking questions, no matter how easy i think the answer might be. a question is 3 things: 1. a manifestation of desire to learn and improve, 2. a sign that i’ve created an environment where kids don’t think i or classmates will make them feel “less than” for asking, 3. a sign that i may not have taught a concept as effectively as i thought/intended.

  5. If you actually say something hateful to someone for asking questions that aren’t personally intrusive, you’re just a terrible person.

  6. Sorry to be a downer, but this whole story sounds like something this chick made up while listening to Billie Eilish in the shower.

  7. It seems like there was a reason for her to be anxious. I never felt comfortable asking questions for that exact reason and it’s sad that people were making her feel like her voice didnt matter. Now, I ask everything that comes into my head.

  8. “A person who asks a question is a fool for a minute. A person who never asks is a fool for life.” ~ Confucius

  9. Non native English speaker here, could anyone explain me the use of all the questions marks in sentences that are clearly not questions? Does it has a different meaning? I can’t really convey the meaning of that 🙁

  10. As a kid I was proud of myself for rarely asking questions. Turns out that asking questions is a skill that everyone should be in the habit of using, and I had to work on that as an adult.

  11. My dad always told me to ask questions in school. He said if I thought it was a stupid question I should ask because someone else was probably thinking the same thing but was to afraid to raise their hand.

    It’s solid advice. If anything it shows your teacher you’re engaged and trying to understand and it also helps the teacher realize where their explanations could be more concise.

  12. If she was that smart why didn’t she just explain and clear her friends doubt herself in private, especially if the questions were to simple according to most of the students and the teachers, something doesn’t make sense about this post.

  13. Does anyone have friends like this? That ask questions for you because idk I’m shocked?? Like what a good friend??? Idk I just think its really cool???? Friends???????? Questions???????? Everything is a question????????????????

  14. I did this a lot when I was in school. I would always be paying attention to what the other students were confused on and I would do this thing where I basically just re-stated what the teacher had taught but I rephrased it as a clarifying question. It was 50% wanting to help out other kids adn 50% me hating how long it took when the teacher was having trouble explaining shit and kids were not understanding.

    I was good at seeing where other kids were getting confused.

  15. Bullshit. The A student friend who aced all the exams would just, you know, like a normal human being, answer any question her friend asked her. Rather than this fake as hell asking teachers dumb questions for her friend scenario for feel good social points to post on social media.

    Is anything online real anymore?

  16. I’m the in US military. About a year ago I was walking past two young guys and overhead this exchange.

    Airman1: “Do you have any really dumb friends?”

    Airman2: “I think I am the dumb friend.”

  17. If the girl was so smart why not answer the question for her, pass the note back and save them both the embarrassment?

  18. I once was in a class back in high school where we had this student that always needed help with her work since English wasn’t her first language. And I was always sat next to her and was told to help her out. I’m ashamed to say that I got pretty annoyed at her asking me for help. I never told her but I’m sure she was able to pick up on it. Looking back on it, i wish I could go back in time and change my behavior. If you see someone that needs help or doesn’t understand, please try to help them out. Sometimes even just a word of encouragement can make a big difference. We never know what others are going through.
