"I believe the hypo above assumed that nobody in that particular class knew your name or who you were ..."
I don't care about the finer points of the hypo. I'm talking about real life, as in sitting in class with people that you usually get to know over the semester and even speak with occasionally.
But I'm glad you agreed with my point overall.
Today I had an encounter with:
Mr. Blurt-Out-The-Answer Guy --
While it's true that the rest of us exhibit a common respect and camaraderie by raising our hands and waiting patiently to put in our two-cents, sometimes never being called on, you just f*cking BLURT the answer out with no regard for anyone else. The teacher called on the guy sitting next to me. Dude had been waiting for like 5 minutes to say the correct answer, but you just shouted it out, completely oblivious of the pecking order. You are an idiot. Nobody likes you because you are quite possibly the most annoying person in class. Who cares if you have a Master's in English and are used to reading 5000 words a day (about which we've been forced to hear you brag over and f*cking over again)? You obviously don't comprehend a f*cking word. When the teacher calls on you to produce the FACTS, that doesn't mean skip straight to the HOLDING.
Oh yeah, and while I got you on the line...your stupid, condascending blue-blood Boston "Kennedy-esque" dialect is boorish and it's also FAKE. You're from f*cking ARKANSAS, I looked it up. So get over yourself, *ssclown.
...and please don't forget to....
F*ck off, Mr. Burp-Under-Your-Breath Guy:
Every other day, I sit next to you in analysis and have to endure your constant closed-mouthed burping. What the f*ck are you eating for lunch that makes you burp consistently for an entire hour? And, do you know that, even when you burp under your breath, you still blow out the residue and I am forced to inhale your stankin' interior gut-odor? Last week, during our practice exam, you did your semi-silent burping throughout the entire class period. I seriously thought about slamming your fat head into the table repeatedly, but I do not want to be charged with battery. I will make it a point to NEVER EVER sit next to you again, and I have warned all my friends about your disgusting habit. You should lay off the crabcakes, beans and broccoli, idiot.
Gawd, I f*cking hate you.

In a nutshell:
Don't worry, you'll get over it.

Aye, being called on sucks, but I don't think participating in class discussion is a waste of time whatsoever. And it seems pretty ridiculous that one would go through what we all undoubtedly had to go through to get into law school and then put forth such an enormous effort to not get called on.
Just do the reading...spend a little time preparing for class...if you get called on, it's more of a learning experience for you as a student than it is anything else. Nobody's ever going to be 100% right all of the time. The Socratic method is all about making you realize that you don't understand. The fun is in the challenge.
To sit in silence while you're being called on is much more idiotic than getting a wrong answer in front of the class. People won't remember that "Ms. X got the answer to International Shoe wrong in Civ Pro," but they will remember that "Ms. X was too big of a p*ssy to answer when she was being called on."
From my contracts professor:
"Before I take a case, I perform 'The Grandmother Test.' I tell my Grandmother about the case, and judging from her reaction, I can tell whether or not I'm on the right side of the situation." ((brief pause))
"But who knows. Grandma might be a Commie."
