Sure you were, pal. Common sense says to talk to the teacher, the T.A. or consult those stapled sheets of paper handed out at the begining of class.
It also says to put people in their place with tact and grace.

Common sense says that you find out what the context of the conversation was before you make half-assed suggestions about who/what she should consult.
Maybe they were working on a group project. Or maybe he was just hitting her up. But you come along like some kind of teacher's aide wannabe and try to intimidate her with your pompous attitude.
Say WHAT??? Who are you to put anybody in 'their place'?
Kinda presumptuous of you, isn't it pal? To think that you somehow have the right or the capacity to put anyone here 'in their place'?
And language like this - "Yes you are entitled to your opinion, however warped and misinformed it may be, but you should do yourself a favor and follow the advice given" shows a distinct lack of tact and grace.
In regards to a teacher’s aide wannabe, how do you know I’m not speaking from experience as a TA? Moreover, and this is the great part, how do you know I’m not a teacher?
You are entitled to hold whatever opinions you desire. Does that mean your opinions have merit? No, because I've shown they don't, and I've shown they are rooted in racism and your hatred for black people (refer to previous post.)
