Does it happen to you?
You say one thing, everyone around you jumps to the conclusion that you've said another and then starts attacking you over it.
I've asked an instructor, "is there a button for that?"
and a classmate interrupted, "you can just do Y+Z then multiply by 2."
WTF? I wasn't asking how to do it. I was asking if THERE WAS A BUTTON.
I felt talked down to.
I've had issues where my Ti says, "that's just not right..." about a certain statement or situation, and then people around me will say things like, "you don't like it, therefore you are racist/biased/republican." I don't have everything all figured out by Ti, and then their accusations make me more confused and scattered. Do I have to finish this, and defend myself at the same time?
I've never been able to ask a question in class. The teacher ALWAYS misunderstands me.
They start talking about something irrelevant.
I thought of a different way of doing a math problem, and I showed it to my teacher, asking, "could you do this?" He then went on to say, "no, you did it differently here! Step 4 is DIVIDE." Basically, I wanted confirmation that my alternative method was right. He thought I was asking if I had followed the official steps correctly.
