Awkward Eating

I was sitting in my class (Women Artists) today around lunchtime. I packed myself a mortadella sandwich on a baguette. The bread was a little stale and tough. As people starting walking in, there I was ripping apart my sandwich with my teeth. It was kind of awkward but I was wondering... Should it be awkward? Am I being rude? I wonder what is going through everyone's head while I am obviously struggling with this sandwich. Do they even notice? Has anyone else ever had a similar experience?
