For college algebra I've been using my sister's TI-83 Plus (graphing) calculator to help out with my homework and what-not. Well, she's also letting her friend, we'll call her T, use the calculator for her college algebra class. This presents a slight problem of sharing the calculator, especially for getting homework done. Well, after my Monday night class Esther asked if I was going to do the homework that night or if she should give it to T to use. I told her I have English homework I needed to read and some other things I'd like to get done and asked when she would have it back by, and she said Tuesday afternoon, so I went ahead and gave it to her to give to T.
Well, Tuesday I was too busy with my English homework, sleeping, and other things to pay attention that the calculator wasn't here. After class Tuesday I asked my sister where the calculator is and she said T still had it and would need it for class in the morning but she could get it to me around noon. Fine, fine, that would still give me three or four hours to do my math homework. Well, noon rolled around and I called my sister who said she would remind T to drop it off, as my sister was in Jackson at the time. Well, I was getting really tired and could barely concentrate so I figured I'd take a nap until T got here. I laid on the futon and went to sleep, waking up long enough to answer whichever blasted phone was ringing and fall back asleep. Well, the last time I woke up I noticed it was 3pm, already far too late for me to get much, if anything, done now so I went to take a shower.
I got out of the shower at 3:40 and called my sister who called T who "said she was sorry and would bring it right over". Look lady, sorry doesn't get me three hours to do my homework in and I still need to eat and finish getting ready. I might get a third of the assigned problems done now, if that. I just hope we don't have a pop quiz on any of this stuff in class tonight or I'm screwed. As it is, I'll be relying on the calculator as a crutch now.
