it wasn't just to please the teacher....and they didn't do it joyfully. just goes to show that the stereotype "lazy mexican" doesn't apply to all of them. many are very hardworking and will go to great lengths in order to succeed in life, even if it means entering this country illegally so as to GET A JOB and support their family (you know, the jobs that our citizens won't take because they think they're too good to mow lawns and pick weeds?). all your statement does is reinforce the sense of entitlement that most americans have these days..."i deserve this"..."you owe me that" etc.
no offense, i know where you're coming from...just my two cents.
