F@%@#!!! I hate my programming partner. Unfortunately, we HAVE to have one for my OOP class. He hasn't contributed shit the whole week, I've written all the code and come up with all the algorithms so far. The guy didn't even attend the class lecture on the project FFS. I did virtually all of the research... no scratch that... I did ALL of the research! 16+ hrs of it! Looking up different C++ libraries and going through billions of lines of code (me have to mimic the funtionality of one of the predefined libraries). I've basically had to explain everything I've we (aka I) have done so far... I'd be better off not having one at all. I would have spent half the amount time on it if I were actually on my own . What a fucking leach, and that's when I even told him that last Sunday that I have tests for two other classes to prepare for and have some catch up reading to do... Well, thank god we have partner evaluations, because I'm gonna grill him big time... ****** wasted literally hours and hours of my time. Never have a stupid engineering student that doesn't know jack about logic, coding, or programming theory be a part of the equation! This happened to me twice already, what rotten fucking luck! My last partner, a computer scientist like myself, we got an A (100%), the highest ranked project in the class, and the most through test cases out of the enitre class. Plus he was a musician, and not a total socially inept nerd with a propensity to only annoy the fuck out of you with redundant repetitive statements about shit you've alreaedy clearly explain a million times over... not to mention always late... fuck, I'm going to loose my mind. I need to get some sleep.
EDIT: Enough of this bullshit, I just emailed my Prof telling him exactly what the case was and how it's absolutely taken away from time I needed to study for two other test, which puts me in a very fucked up situation. I've issued a statement requesting a termination of this partnership as the ****** could cost me more than just a letter grade for one of my other classes.
EDIT2: Busted! My Prof responded within like a minute and approved my request for termination . Now I can spend half the amount of time and study for my other two test as I won't have to explain what the hell I'm doing to some incompitent lazy asshole what I'm doing half the time I've spend working on this project.

"First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me— and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Martin Niemöller
