To completely lose my shit at these teenagers?

I’m a mature postgrad student studying a full time masters whilst also working.
I’ve booked a few days off work so I can complete 2 assignments which are due in next week.
I’m sat in a “quiet zone” pod in the university library and there is a group of inconsiderate teenage students crammed into the pod next to me and using it as a fucking social area.
I’m trying to study but all I can hear is them waffling on about absolute shit really fucking loudly.

The security guard has already been over to ask them to move from the pod (they’re meant to be for one person only) and to keep the noise down.

I’d have no issue if they were doing group work and discussing quietly... but they’re currently discussing the Kardashians at top volume and being rude twats.

I’ve asked them nicely to keep it down. I’m about to go nuclear angry

Andy yes but the security guard didn't deal with it. The librarians at my uni library (never saw any security guards) were quite fearsome and wouldn't tolerate loud breathing let alone loud chat especially in the quiet areas. You could even email them to report distracting behaviour.

Today I found paradise. I did not know such a beautiful place existed...
I found a post-grad only study zone.
It was silent bliss grin and I finished one of my assignments today!

Are you using an iPhone or other Apple device? I had the issue with the strikeouts not working, and then I discovered 'smart punctuation'. If you go to Settings > General > Keyboard and look for 'smart punctuation' turn it off, and that should fix your strikeout issue!

Love the comment about Lucy's Mum. Lets hope that Lucy wises up.

My dd is a first year and she LOATHES noise in the library. Mind you, she’s a massive perfectionist and more mature than I am so that might have something to do with it. grin People pissing about when she’s working makes her have all the rage.

I adore the idea of pretending to be Lucy’s Mum. 😂

I wonder if Lucysmam is reading this in horror.
