Consider the following example illustrating the ridiculousness of your unwarranted attack:
You know someone from law school that you have been friendly with, but you don't know well. They are in your Constitutional Law course. They never go to class. Instead, they spend that time having fun, doing things they like to do--things you would also like to do, but that you don't do because you are in class working.
Each week after skipping class for fun, they ask you to send them the notes you worked to get. Do you do it? If not, then by your definition, you are a "gunner douche."
The previous example is analogous to my situation.
I hope you don't use that kind of "analogous reasoning" on exams.......
My example and analogy was quite effective, as evidenced by your lack of a substantive response.
And seriously dude, how in world can you possibly think I am a douche for caring about someone effectively stealing my class notes???
Analogies need to be similar, not extreme. There's a huge difference between never going to class and asking people to give you their notes and actually going to class and peeking at your neighbors screen. One involves effort, the other doesn't.
And to be honest, I doubt this person is paying as little attention as you think. She's at least aware enough to know when to copy off your screen. I know when I zone out in class, Jessica Alba could strip in front of me and I wouldn't notice.
Anyway, my advice would be to politely say something. The screen shield is a decent idea in theory, but you're going to become that guy pretty quick. You know, the douche with the screen shield that thinks his notes are so wonderful that people are dying to copy them. It isn't YOUR notes the girl wants. She just wants notes. Yours are convenient. Actually, thats another thing that distinguishes your analogy from reality. In one, the girl copies off of you because you happen to be right next to her, in the other, the freeloader actively seeks out someone whom he knows takes copious notes and asks to borrow them.
On a side note, type in Wingdings. If anyone asks, they keep you entertained. You can change the font later. Hard to be a douche with wingdings.
