Am I stupid or what?
The other day I had a conversation with a colleague who happens to be my junior (way way junior) back in the university. The conversation started with discussion over how students today have to cope with so many tasks. Every day there is at least one task to submit because lecturers of each subject give homework to their students.
"The tasks are too many. I used to trade my assignments with my friends from other classes, and on the other hand they will provide me with the assignment for another subject," prompted my colleague. "The lecturer wouldn't find out because we had different lecturer anyway," he gloated.
"But that was not the right thing to do," I protested but did not want sound too offending.
"How come? The lecturers were happy because the students submitted their assignments, and we're happy because we could prevent ourselves from not turning in the tasks. Everybody's happy, right?"
I did not know what to say. To me, that's against my heart. But then again, listening to all my colleague's defense, I'm thinking again: Am I just a plain stupid or what?
