How do you handle someone rolling their eyes at you for no good reason?
Some background -
We have a paper due next month that is based on a research article that we do not have yet. In class, someone else asked when would we be receiving this article. We're not getting it until the end of this month.
I quietly made the comment to my classmate that it would be nice if they went ahead and gave it to us. (There are several people that want it now. Not only to write the paper, but to take the article to class and work on the section that is being covered in lecture that day.) Well, my classmate commented that it was nice that we were not going to get the article until the end of the month since it would allow for us to concentrate on other subjects. Now.... I thought this was beign ... I commented: Yeh, but if they gave the article to us sooner rather than later, then those who wanted or needed to work on it now could and those who didn't want to work on it could chose to wait. Then she - bigger than day - rolled her eyes at me!!!
Now this isn't the first time she's done this.
But was I totally out of line with what I said??
I'm not a get-everything-done-asap-kiss-the-professor's-arse type of person, but since I am a single mom and I do have to prioritize. (She knows this.) Most of the people who know me totally understand my situation. And, she's not some young person that hasn't lived life.
I also find it rude that she does this to a lot of people....
So, do I just ignore it and not talk to her but be friendly when I'm around her?
Or do I try to tell her so she doesn't lose friends by her actions?
or .... something totally different?

llg you're so nice!
Unfortunately, I've felt like a real PITA lately so I'd probably say something sarcastic re: the eyerolling.
Simply because I'm a TERRIBLE eyeroller...I've just gotten smart enough not to do it to someone's face.
In your case Kitty, I'd let it go this time, could've just been off day for her. If it happened again, I'd say something. :kiss
