  -> Fair enough. I guess I'm still irritated about a girl who, a couple of days ago, wanted her *entire* homework done for her.

agree  Geri Linda Metterle: Agree with Kathryn. You get your homework to do it yourself and not let it be done by others. A little help or a hint is OK, but not the entire homework.
