    Anyone had this problem?

    For me it's not that I don't want to share my answers, if a friend messages me saying that they're struggling and need my help then I'm more than happy to help. But when you see people running into class asking for the answers to the homework they haven't done I just can't help but not truly want to help. I do, because I'd like to think they'd do the same for me, but I feel annoyed because they should have done it before 5 mins before the class.

    Might be just me, thought I'd ask.

    What annoys me is when people ask for help and then they copy your work.

    For example, they need help so you give them examples. When you read their work to check it, they have used your examples and nothing else, just puffed them out a bit.

    And also if you send someone your work so they can see how to do it. They then copy it and just change a few words.

    That's why I don't send people my work any more. I'm fed up of nagging them to change it.

    I don't mind helping them, but i'm not going to do it for them. I prefer to ask questions, to which they have to answer which will help them.
