I catch a student cheating on an essay. He vehemently denies it. I wait some time before the mid term grading period and really do my research. I have every single word of his essay documented on a textbook website online. His mother calls to complain and defend her son. Why? Another teacher helped him fix his grammar mistakes when he retyped it from the website so he "clearly didn't cheat!"
