GeneralWhy do lazy students assume everyone else is dumber than them? Pin

We are seeing it a lot in QA at the moment:

"I've written this in C++, but I remembered I need it in C and I'm running out of time - convert it for me?"
"I wrote this in Python, but I need it in C++ and I don't know Python - convert it for me?"
Normally with more spelling mistakes and much worse grammar.

What planet do you have to live on to run that through your head and think "Yeah, every one'll believe that"?

The assumption seems to be that anyone who answers question must be dumber than them - because nobody with a room-temperature IQ or higher would fall for it ...

The fun bit is that it probably doesn't do exactly what their homework wants anyway, and there is zero chance they will understand it enough to fix that, even if they do test it beyond getting a clean compile. Big Grin | :-D
