  • Jamie not thinking things through

    9.0
    Jamie gave Vicki a taste of a milkshake. Even a kid should know that robots don't eat or drink food. Plus, he gets Vicki to do his homework for him. Jamie has to learn that Vicki doesn't need to learn math, he does. You can't learn things if someone else does your work for you. Not to mention, what's he going to do when he has a test? He can't have Vicki take his tests for him and his teacher will question why he does his homework so well and does so poorly on tests.moreless
