Please, Stop Asking Me For The Answers

OH, you took AP chem. I forgot, you're a genius.

Please, Stop Asking Me For The Answers
Lead Beyond

In my freshman year of high school, it seemed like everyone asked me for the answers for the homework or the lab or whatever we were doing. I would give them the answers because I felt cool for helping people, but I really wasn't helping them. And when I tried to explain how to do it, they would ignore what I said saying "it's too hard" and "just give me the answer." Well, I would and it was annoying because some people are just too lazy to even put a slight amount of thought into changing the wording, and that's how my 8th grade history class all ended up with the same answers as I did.

Flash forward almost five years and I'm in the same position, only this time as a Freshman in college.

I have peers who repeatedly remind me they took AP chemistry. While my school was not accredited, we had the best chemistry teacher who did a far superior job than any of their AP teachers did because I can understand what's going on - most of the time. So please, stop telling me you took AP chem and some of this is harder than what they taught you because these are the exact same things I did without an AP credit to my name.

After I've heard the AP spiel, they turn and ask me what I got and, like an idiot, I tell them. If you ask me that's fine, but don't turn around and ask another person because you think I'm wrong because guess what? I'm right! How do I know? Well, I asked the TA and I got full-credit for the answers I submitted. So do me a favor and stop wasting my breath.

Also, why argue with me? Are you incapable of understanding what I just told you three times?

If you have no idea what's going on (I know this because you just told me), why are you telling me I'm wrong?

OH you took AP chem. I forgot, you're a genius.

My bad.
