Some of you may remember I made a thread about what 5 Billion dollars should be used for for a developing country. The project was to pick a country (I picked Bhutan) and wrote 5-7 pages about how 5 Billion dollars could be used for sustainable development. When all was said and done I got 7 pages and a final grade of 96%.
So my "friend" waited till 10:00pm on the night before it was due, half asses it, and tries to finish it up a few periods before the class. He ended up getting a 40% and that he must re-do it.
Well see we're assigned to pick a day in December or Jan. and present to the class why we should win. We're required to give the students an outline of our project.
He needed help re-write and he asked if I could see mine. I said eh at first, but then I lent it to him for a night (it ended up being a few days). I specifically said to NOT copy it or ANYTHING!!.. his reply: "haha why the f would I copy anything!"
Today he went to present and when he handed out his outline, it was like 90+% of what my paper was on!!!!! even though his country was different and much more affluent.
WTF was he thinking. I had brilliant ideas such as creating a department under their current Ministry of Economics that was called something like Grant Assesment and Allocation Center..he copied that and reworded it, distributued the money just like I did but with further rewording, and damnit to hell everything.
I didn't confront him today, because I wasn't sure how or when I was going to do it. I just avioded him as much as I could, even though he asks me some questions about other classes. Now that I think of it, ever since I was a freshman, I had to tolerate him. I don't even know why I call him a friend. (he only has a few) He always tries to belittle me and make me jealous. Like he got a fancy new phone with TV and internet capabilites, which he ALWAYS has out infront of me, sound blaring.. then a new SUV, which he purposely parks next to me in the parking lot, and jsut a bunch of other crap.
How should I go about confronting this? I worked my ass off the night it was due and he steals my ideas. Pisses me off.
