UCD irritations... ie first world problems! (See Mod Note, 1st post)

Shall I begin? The fact that the reading list for my course is located in both the James Joyce and Health Science libraries. Trekking is unfun.

Tempermental self check scanners in the libo. Grim.

The lack of food options is starting to grate a little too.

Please Continue!

Mod Note: This thread is for cathartic ranting about stuff that annoys you. People replying to rants to complain about peoples complaints will earn an infraction

1. People who insist on 'saving seats' for their buddy in the Daedalus computer centre when it's already full to capacity

2. The one obnoxious mature student who intends on telling the lecturer they're wrong... about everything

3. Group project Nazis

The person who keeps asking questions at the end of lectures, despite everyone else gagging to leave.

People beating the sh1t out of the spacebar when typing in a lecture/library/anywhere.

People who throw down their bag on the desk in the library then open it and throw books/laptops/keys/water etc. out of the bag onto the desk.

People who can't put a chair back under a table in the library quietly without the 'DING!'

The fact that science no longer have a restaurant and a sandwich costs 4.50 in conway.

The new f****** printing system! Why the hell are most the printing resources given over to first years? No offence but there's a lot more of us 2nd/3rd/4th/5th years! I think it's a disgrace that they expect us to pay anything towards a new student card. They changed the system they fix the fallout. Simple really.

Nine o clock lectures when you have an hour and a half commute in.

5 hour blocks of labs and lectures without food!

Lab reports (just in general)

Wow. That made me feel better. lol

You mean €3.89, or €5 with a hot drink, right? Because that's how much i pay from sandwiches from Conway.

Ontopic: Freshers who haven't realised that some people are here to do some goddamned work, and insist on milling aimlessly around in my way.

The UCD Centra's Deli is well worth trying. More variety and lower prices than that Kylemore shambles.

  • People who announce statements instead of asking questions in lectures.
  • People who play music. anywhere. Buy headphones.
  • People who leave their rubbish on tables. You're not 6.
  • People who ask me to vote for X in Y election but fail to give me any reasons what so ever for doing so other than "ah gowaaan it's me mate"

If you have an ethernet port in your room you can just use that, and it's way faster/better than the Wi-Fi.
