5 People You’ll See in The Computer Lab | College Crunch Time

Here’s a list of the five people who you’ll probably encounter while getting your Dexter on at the Library.

The Gamer:
Nothing says “cool” like playing video games at school. Oh wait, you’rein college? Never mind. Now, I’m not exactly sure what the ladies think of when they see dudes playing computer games in the computer lab. But, it’s safe to rule out adjectives such as; moist, wet, and damp. But who cares? You’re about to type your initials in at the top of the leader board, and that’s something to be proud of. Right?

The Social Network Addict: Pending on how much adderall you may or may not have consumed, at some point, you might need a little break from your studies. Seeing how facebook and/or twitter are right at your fingertips, social networks are one of the easiest ways to take your mind off of schoolwork. On the other hand, if you’re spending your whole “study” session on one of the outlets mentioned above, not only are you wasting your time, but you kind of look like a black sheep as well. *No offense to any black sheep who may be reading this.
The Future Hearing Aid Recipient: Don’t get me wrong, I love listening to music when I’m trying to get my shit done. However, there’s nothing worse than sitting next to someone who has absolutely no computer lab etiquette. I mean, the whole purpose behind headphones is that they enable you to enjoy whatever genre of music you prefer—and in doing so—you’re not subjecting other people to have to endure your particular taste in music. Personally, I have no problem telling the asshole sitting next to me that their headphones are leaking shitty music.


The Bitch Talking On Her Cell Phone: I’ve noticed that it’s never the people who have their phones on silent who contribute to pissing off everyone in the computer lab. Upon being startled by some random ringtone, my biggest pet peeve usually comes into play. Before I sound like a whiny bitch (probably too late for that), I don’t mind if the conversation is only a minute long. Unfortunately, that scenario is never the case. But, no need to worry kiddo because after about three minutes of annoying banter, something miraculous happens… the computer lab hero steps in.


The Computer Lab Hero: The computer lab heroes are a blessing in disguise. Even though they tend to blend in with everyone else, they’re constantly observing their surroundings. They’re not the type to overreact, but there’s only so much bullshit that they can take. As soon as the computer lab hero has had enough and sees that the others around him (or her) are feeling the same way, he springs into action. However, the computer lab hero doesn’t completely loose his shit. Nay, nay. It’s more of a subtle response in which makes the culprit feel like a complete idiot. After being called out by the computer lab hero, the guilty party usually leaves out of sheer embarrassment. Shortly after their departure, the people of the computer lab praise the hero for his act of courage. “Thanks bro, that dude was so fucking annoying”.
