Back to school, back to school...

Ok, so far my classes have been going pretty good. I had my first statistics test 2 weeks ago and i got an 89!!! For all of you who know me know that me and math are not friends...so getting a B+ on a test made my day!
The only class that is really urking me is my English class. I am taking this class with my good friend Chris- teachers pet. This kid will always comment on anything he can even if it is not relevant to the discussion. Our teacher, who I feel has ADHD LOVES Chris and all that he has to say-this pisses me off.
Here is a real life situation that happened in this class:
So every Monday Chris and I do our homework "together" (meaning i usually do the work). So one Monday I did the homework in which he copied off of. Now in our class we have to type our homework, its not necessary but our teacher perfers it. So when were in class we both realized that we did not type our homework. I decided to leave a little note on the paper "Sorry this is not typed, will do next time". (direct quote) I left this note on my paper, while Chris did not.
So a week goes by and we get our homework back. I look at Chris's paper and see he has a check mark on the top of his page. So seeing what he got I assumed things would be the same for me-WRONG! I get mine back and next to my lovely note I left him he said "I got it". Then I see other sorts of notes marked all over my page such as: "Make sure you double space- type". To top it all off, if things couldnt have urked me more...at the bottom of my homework assignment was a sad face. A SAD FACE, are you kidding me!!!
For 1. Chris copied ME... he got ALL my answers from ME
2. I left a kind note explaining I will type it up next time
3. I wrote my assingnment neatly( neater than Chris's)
4. And yet I get a sad face compared to his check mark???
The whole situation really bugged me, and when I showed Chris my paper he just laughed.
At the end of all the Chris "had some advice for me, to make the teacher like me, which was to simply talk more" :) I put a smiley face there because this whole situation makes me grin and smile in pure disbelief and annoyance.
(sorry if things are typed wrong, i did not read this over)

Hey, nice with the test girl! I would be ticked off also. I hate teacher's pets! I will call you sometime:)

I have two words of advice: Dump Chris.

Congrats on the statistics test - no small feat!

What a bug! Tell Chris to find someone else to copy from and tell your teach to shove it - jk
