Getting a Better Mark than My Friend

Sometimes we do things in high school not really realizing the impact that we have on our own future or the impact we have on our friends.

High school stories

In high school that first year was hard and I found that I had a lot more homework than I did in elementary school. Sometimes I just didn't do it. I was a good girl though. When I didn’t do it it was because I did not understand how to do it.

Since I was such a good kid the teachers used to give me a few more days to do it.

The English assignment

One English assignment I put off because I did not quite understand it. I begged my teacher for extra time and he gave it to me but I still didn't know how to tackle it.

I convinced Harold who was good in English to let me see what he wrote. So he did.

The aftermath

I then wrote my paper adding his points and a few of my own and got a better mark than he did. He was so mad, that he never let me see his work again.
I don't really blame him to you?

Sounds like the teachers liked you better so graded you higher perhaps subconsciously.

Some people are just so competitive they can't handle not being
#1 all the time.

Now that is something I never had to worry about, hated school, but my wife was always in the honor roll.
