“Can I have some gum?”

What an annoying question.

Schools have a lot of students, sometimes too many students. And we know that other students are often the source of frustration, and the reasons are many and varied.

For example, the halls of CHS are packed with students between every period for five minutes.  When people walk at slower paces (and/or) stop in the middle of the hall to talk to friends, students often get annoyed.  It can lead to lateness for the student behind them.

“Slow walkers make me late, and then teachers yell at me,” added sophomore Declan Carney.

PDA, otherwise known as public displays of affection, is another dilemma people have in the hallways.

“You don’t need to hug and kiss in the hallways every hour,” complained sophomore Katherine Anderson.

These problems don’t really have a solution, other than hoping that students will be considerate of others’ presence in the halls.

Students can also be inconsiderate when holding up classes because they don’t pay attention.

“People ask the teacher questions that were already answered, and they hold up the class,” sophomore Mackenzie Andrews explained.

Sometimes teachers are the reasons for student complaints as well. For example, when teachers don’t put in grades on Engrade hastily, students get frustrated that they aren’t updated on their grades. With the new grading policy, it slows down the process of making up or redoing assignments.

“When my grades aren’t in on time, I can’t tell if I should redo before the grading period ends,” sophomore Jourdan Sohn said.

Everyone has a different coping mechanism for things that bother them.

“I rant to my mom and friends,” explained sophomore Cally McClure.

Solutions that students have come up with include a suggestion box for the school, and some wish there could be a conversation for the people of the school to fix these annoying problems.

The most annoying problems, say CHS students, are other students and teachers who are unhelpful or don’t respect us.

“When teachers don’t respect us because they think we’re stereotypical teens, they become less helpful at really teaching us.”
