I'm choosing between homework and expensive pen

I have here a lengthy homework about five pages long and on the other hand a very expensive fine pen. Now somebody stole both and he said he owns one of them. He let me choose which to keep. What should I choose? This is just made up but if this did occur to you. What will you choose the pen or homework?

Redo the homework. You've done your draft the first time, so the second version of the homework will be better than the first, and you will know the subject better for the repetition. On top of this, some pens are practically irreplacable. It's almost a win-win for you.

Yes people may think that I have no sentimentality over my hard work since I gave it to the stealer but just now I cannot lose the expensive pen. I will need it later for more homework. Therefore I can do more homework now that the pen remains with me. If someone says I am a fool for giving away my homework I may tell him that if I do not keep my pen, other future homework will not be done and I cant replace the pen I have with a cheaper one.

That is a bit of a tougher one. I would be upset that I lost that much work. On the other hands, the pen is expensive. Therefore, if I lost that, that could mean that I lost out on a lot of money. So two things that would be very frustrating to me to lose and an interesting choice to make. With that in mind, I would choose the homework in a heartbeat. There is a lot of homework that I do once and never want to do again. Losing all that work would be unacceptable. It would not be nice to lose the pen but I would recover. If all else fails, I can just punch the guy out and take both back. Not that I recommend this, but still, its something that could happen when presented with a choice like this.

If the homework is kept rather than the pen it is quite a change since by tomorrow the pen will not be the same again. It will be something cheaper as the previous pen lost to the stealer is expensive and cannot be bought in a day so you have to resort to a lower priced pen. Now you have to endure being called a cheap but yet it seem a more logical choice indeed. yes I also want to punch the guy but its easier said than done. He might punch back and make me feel like Now that the pen is lost and I'm using a cheap pen, I wonder if I could endure it.

Choose the pen of course. I never did homework and don't like it :) Wrap your thumb with bandages and tell the teacher that you couldn't do your homework because of the injury. I have done it many times and has never failed. And remember, pen is mightier than the sword and homeworks aren't!

LOL it cost you money but you cannot waste the product of your hardwork either! But if you have no money you will get hungry so it helps to have money that buys another expensive pen LOL
