Backbenchers- The most amusing elements of a class. The fondness for school and college memories made on the backbenches cannot be compared. These precious memories stay close to the heart forever. You can relate to these points if you have been a backbencher in your school or college life:
1) FOR ANY NUISANCE DURING THE CLASS, THE TEACHERS HAD A PINPOINT ON YOU.
While occupying the last bench for a longer time span. It is one of the most common problems that comes out. No matter who is the one committing the mischief or making humorous sounds in between the class. Teachers would surely have a pinpoint on you. If you have been a backbencher for quite a long period, they start developing a perception that backbenchers are not studious.
2) HAVING LUNCH WHILE THE CLASS IS GOING ON.
This the coolest thing about being a backbencher. Most of us occupy the back benches for the purpose of having fun while the boring lectures are on their way. While the teacher’s voice during the lecture overpowers the classroom. There are the backbenchers who satisfy their hunger. It is cool to have a delicious meal without coming under the teacher’s observation. Backbenchers become habitual of taking up the back seats even in the empty classroom.
3) BACKBENCHERS ARE NOT BOTHERED ABOUT THE NOTES MUCH.
We may not be much concerned about the examination. But, we can’t deny the fact that we sit in the boring lectures just for the sake of some marks and the marks matter. When we chose to be on the last seat, we hardly plan out to make any notes. Maybe, the tuitions or the self-study is sufficient to help us score well. The harsh words of the teacher and the pending notes are not a matter of concern for the backbenchers. As they are busy in creating memories for a lifetime.
4) A BETTER EXPOSURE TO USE THE PHONES AND SLEEP IN BETWEEN THE CLASS.
It is quite prominent to use the mobiles phones, texting while the teacher is busy with her lecture, with a little chance of being caught. When the lectures turn intolerable and that’s the end of our patience, we can have a relaxing time and a good sleep at the last bench. Backbenchers enjoy the autonomy of using cell phones and have a relaxing sleep in between the boring lectures.
5) BACKBENCHERS ARE ALWAYS COMPILED WITH SOME OTHER WORK.
Being a backbencher we can easily spare out time for reading out our favourite novel or completing the pending work of other subjects. We are always too busy doing the task which is not related to the lecture which is going on. We don’t even understand the reason for sitting in the class and paying zero percent attention. But, attendance matters and that’s why sitting in the class also matters.
6) MAYBE, YOU ARE A PART OF A COOL SQUAD.
This might not be true always. As having one friend can also make your school/college journey remarkable. But, most of the back benches are occupied with their cool gangs, who let the whole classroom enjoy their humorous incidents. The topmost person in a teacher’s hit list is one of the backbenchers, always being punished for disturbing the whole class with their silly gossips or just randomly disturbing the teacher. The punishment of sitting on the first seat is very common and turnouts to be scary for the backbenchers as being in the first seat won’t let them enjoy the way they do.
7) INDEED YOU ARE THE MOST TALKATIVE AND THE MISCHIEVOUS ELEMENT OF THE CLASS.
Making quality time out and enjoyment out of the boring lectures and have some humorous time in between the class is an ultimate fun and common source of enjoyment for the backbenchers. Now, for quite a long period the teachers keep on screaming at us and the words of the teachers don’t affect us in any way, all of them get used to the mischievous behaviour of the backbenchers. Gossiping and whispering about various things is a speciality of the backbenchers. Committing mischiefs like making funny and weird noises is cool until you are not under the teacher’s observation.
