    You are blocking my way.

    While I am watching TV, Jack stand in front of me and didn't know that he was blocking my way.

    "You are blocking my way."
    How to tell Jack he was blocking my way?

    I am not a teacher.

    You're in the way.
    You're blocking my view (of the television).

    In many households, I imagine you would hear "Oy! Jack! Move!"

    'You'd make a better door than a window.'

    EDIT: I didn't notice Dave's post when I wrote that.
