What Johnny did is nothing compared to what they do these days.
19 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Yes, Johnny did not have time to study for his test so he had to use poor Mary who is so smart. It worked once, will it continue to do so? Ha, these days most kids use their smart phones to look up answers, use the internet to copy essays and have no need for copying. Sorry for being so cynical, but I earned my 3.90 GPA in college, earned my degree actually putting forth some effort and it just irks me how many people simply do shortcuts so yes, Johnny should be burned for his transgression! Seriously I do not like cheaters, do not like liars and can not stand their parents who will take up for them and provide them the means to cheat. Of course, poor Johnny does not seem to have any parents to be seen, at least not in this short. Meanwhile, the moronic student council full of a bunch of most likely hypocrites, decides Johnny's fate. One has to wonder why Johnny needed to study for an algebra test as it is math, really no studying involved. Perhaps go over a few problems to make sure you know who to calculate your answer, but studying really should not be a factor. And what of the teacher? How could she miss it the first time? When your student makes an A on his math test and simply has answers rather than a page full of problems being worked out, it would make me suspicious, sure a person can work it out in their mind, but I am betting poor Johnny never has.
