What was that look for?

So yesterday,i arrived at exam center an hour before.so I was just sitting at park with friends. Then a girl(my classmate) came & then we all were talking. Then I asked her "do you know what latice is?"
She just looked me in the eyes & stared for like 10 seconds & nodded her head in negative manner & said NO. But that pause & specially that look was just so infuriating.it bothered me a lot while solving the questions. Uggggh! That fuckin look it still just frustrates me so much. I don't even know what I am writing. I am afraid that look will hunt me in the next exam too... So guys could you tell me what was that look for?
Ps. We don't talk much,i think I barely talked to her in the whole semester.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I don’t know what her problem was. But I pulled this off the internet for lattice
    “a structure consisting of strips of wood or metal crossed and fastened together with square or diamond-shaped spaces left between, used typically as a screen or fence or as a support for climbing plants.”

    • oww! come on man it was exam time so ofcourse i wouldn't ask her some silly question so no i wasn't talking about that "lattice" you described it was the other one actually question doesn't matter now that look does.
      i don't wanna see her again,idk how will i act in front of her.

        • all i am saying is don't focus on lattice... if you know anything about that look then it would be of great help.

  • well i am not so sure about that look may be it was just look of vagueness but if you are still interested in latice then it is a partially ordered set which has a l.u.b(least upper bound) & g.u.b(greatest lower bound.

  • Maybe she was anxious. Maybe she was thrown off by a question like that coming out of nowhere, maybe she didn't know why you were asking her of all people. Maybe she thought you were trying to make a joke or thought she was missing something.
    What I'm saying is, get comfy with the idea that you'll probably never know. What other people think really isn't your business (usually), ya know? She probably didn't think about it much at all after it happened and honestly I don't think you need to either. She didn't do anything wrong and neither did you, it seems, so it's really a non-issue in the end

    • oh no... actually it was faq. almost repeated every year in exams so she probably didn't think that its a strange question.

  • Seems pretty obvious to me. You asked her a question she thought about it for about 10 seconds, she maintained eye contact while she was thinking, that’s good manners since it was you that asked the question, but she didn’t know the answer and couldn’t think what it was, so she shook her head and said no. I assume the question was relevant to the exam, so maybe the realisation she didn’t know that important piece of information, worried her a bit which would also explain any weirdness in her look.

    • Yeah that sounds like the most reasonable answer to me

    • actually come to think of it,its the most reasonable answer but still she wasn't looking me with vagueness, thats for sure it was something diff. & its still bothering me little bit

  • Here is the nearest thing I could find for the definition of lattice in physics:

    "a regular repeated three-dimensional arrangement of atoms, ions, or molecules in a metal or other crystalline solid."

    • yeah! exactly but i wasn't talking about chemistry so...

  • I don't think it was evil was it ?

    Probably just zoned out or had an anxious moment..could be anything really

  • Yes. We can tell you exactly what someone else was thinking from your barely coherent rant. We are psychics.

    You're putting a lot of energy into worrying about something that really doesn't fucking matter.

    • Sweet jesus! You're still around here. :P

      Agree with your post. Could've been a billion different reasons for the look. Maybe she was rummaging her memory for anything resembling "latice". Or maybe she just realized she could no longer hold in a fart, and that look was her trying to figure out if you heard it.
      To be honest, I had to google "latice" myself.

      • You're back! Yay :D

        I am terminally bored and always have my phone on me, so...yeah. Still here, more jaded. What brings you back?

        IIN I knew what latice is? I feel weird about it, seeing as apparently it's not as common knowledge as I thought :/

        • What brings me back? Also boredom, I guess. :D
          Decided to show up and see if anything's new on IIN. Nope, still weird fetishes and adolescent insecurity, mostly.

          It's fine that you knew about latice. I'm oblivious to many things that others consider common knowledge.

    • sure it doesn't matter to you coz she wasn't looking at you.
      i am just asking coz may be you have encountered that kinda look (or anybody else).
      or you gave someone that kinda look.

      • ...you now expect us to be able to visualise "that kinda look" from your poor description?

        It doesn't matter to me...and it wouldn't even if it had been directed at me, because it's a fucking retarded thing to obsess over.

        • well then why did you even bother??
          & also people are obsessed with some really strange & silly things i am sure you are too.(but ofcourse you are gonna say no that yiu aren't obsessed with anything,just to proove your point)
          but it doesn't make you or me retarded.

            • criticising🙄...may be you haven't read my reply properly or you don't know the meaning of the word criticising.
              here let me tell you CRITICISING MEANS INDICATING SOMEONE'S FAULT.
              now you know what it means,so read my comment again.

  • Nodded her head in a negative manner.
    A nod is up down = yes
    A shake is side to side = no.
    Maybe she stared because she likes you.
    Or.
    She was trying to figure out why you're asking a stupid question.

    • Oh! dude it was not a stupid question it was exam related & I don't think she likes me or anything.

  • probably a condescending look? anyway try to let it go and don't be so affected by what people think or the way they look at you.. I know how you feel I was once like you but I trained my brain not to give a fuck by having a scientific and big picture point of view plus meditation..took a while though before progress c:

  • I am wondering...why do you call her a bitch? How is this insult justified? This frustrated reaction of yours is very abnormal and offensive towards a woman who did nothing to you. And this frustration might also explain why you act like you have a carrot in your ass and you can't focus on your exams.

    • I know i shouldn't call her a bitch but i've got some anger issues but really man that look was just ughhh! infuriating & insulting.

  • I don't know, I wasn't there. Why don't you enlighten the rest of us as to what a lattice is?

    • oh! I asked her today about that look, she said it was just to annoy & irritate me.
      I asked why did she do it,she said "it was just a prank".

      • That's weird. A prank is generally more like a practical joke, not just a look.

        • Yeah it does seem odd to me but i just don't understand why is she hiding the actual reason?
          well i have forgotten that look but i still wonder why.

      • Maybe, but honestly I thought it was a type of fence working wherein the strips of wood criss cross each other.

            • wtf are you guys talking about??
              1st lattice isn't an offensive word,that it upset her.
              actually i was talking about POSET & lattice,its just maths topic that's all(sorry should've been more clear).
