No, I don’t mean the spying thing or a pervert stalker 😛 rather the old fashioned being watched by others when you are doing something. For some reason when I feel someone is watching me do something, my brain goes to over drive and my temper flares. I just can’t stand it. It is like they are judging me, criticizing me, looking for a mistake…just drives me nuts. When I’m doing anything I prefer to be alone just for that reason. I remember in school or university when the teacher comes to look over my head when doing class work or a test I would just stop writing until he/she moves away.
This reminded me of a prank I pulled on one of the students in my practice teaching class. Wonderful bright kid, he was mature for his 5th grade class, constantly sarcastic. Most the other students didn’t get what he said but knew he was making fun of them. I told him to stop belittling others but he didn’t heed. So once while he was doing a quiz, I went over to his desk and looked over his shoulder so he looked at me to see a quizzical eyebrow over what he was writing as if it was wrong. He got all worried and started asking me what was wrong. I couldn’t let him suffer for long so I told him I was just kidding and he was doing ok and explained why I did it. After that his sarcastic comments were toned down.
I have to admit watching does work sometimes but I still don’t like it :X
