    This morning I went into school, to discover that my economics teacher yet AGAIN hadn't turned up for lesson. I've got used to this as he's missed about 34 lessons since September! Shocking...I know....
    Anyways we have an exam on Monday...god knows how we're going to pass. So today one of the senior staff rounded all the ecn students into the 6th form common room.

    I'll try not go on too much...but the head of year organised for a retired teacher who used to teach at the school to come in and teach us. (Things are really bad at school)

    Now, My revision guide was out and my friend was looking at it...soon enough it got passed around class and everybody wanted a damn photocopy of it!!!!! GRRR....The teacher even suggested this to all the other students without even asking mee!!!!!!!! :mad:

    Now a few of my friends have made a few copies of some chapters which I not tooo stressed about, but they want me to scan a few more pages in tonight over the internet via my scanner.

    Now I brought this book for £7!! (loads of money) and I don't really want them leaching off me....what shall I tell them? I don't know what to dooo :confused: HELP!

    It's illegal - but then so are most things. :bebored:

    I'd just let them do it. 7 quid is bugger-all in the grand scheme of things. :aetsch:

    But, it's not like they're asking me, more as "Copy them tonight yeh, cheers!"
    They reminded me like 3 times before I left school this morning!

    Just tell them that they should have bought their own books and then they wouldn't be screwed, and that it is not your problem they arent organised.

    Im not often stingy, but I don't want them take advantage of me, and as if they haven't photocopied enough from the book this morning!

    One of them, before I said I was going home, starting making sure everyone in class wanted/didn't want a copy!

    WTF...How rude and inconsiderate was that...that's kinda why im reluctant not to give them the scanned notes 2nite.

    Dont forget that the time you spend copying/scanning/printing an whatever is going to eat into possible revision time for you. Its no good being the smart one who actually bought a revision guide if you are too busy copying it to actually use it!!!
    If you dont wanna seem mean by not doing anything maybe see if the book has like chapter summaries? you could just give them instead of wasting the weekend copying the whole book!

    If you're that bothered about costs, say you'll do it but you can't afford to copy for everyone.

    If the teacher will use the staff photocopier, fair enough. If not, say you'll do it, but only if they pay the costs of copyinmg. Like my library charges 5p per copy, so I'd charge 5p per sheet.


    As for the 7 quid you paid, ah, who cares?

    Scan ONE copy, bring it in, give it to ONE person, and tell the others they can photocopy that scanned copy if they are desperate for a copy.
    They can use the school's photocopier to get a copy

    (used the word copy too many times there)
