I hate sending such emails :(


I think you plagiarized your paper. I'll give you your two options:
1) Admit plagiarism. Earn an FA for this course. Case closed.
2) Deny plagiarism. We sit together and you convince me that you actually wrote it. Bare in mind that once you deny plagiarism but I actually prove you wrong, an FA is no longer the only result. If we discuss the paper and you fail to prove it to be yours, I report you to the dean and you suffer the consequences, which might entail your failure in the whole term.

Let me know what action you want to take.

Suggestion: Give them the title of the essay or the subject it has to discuss and tell them that on a certain day they can sit in class and work on it for three hours IN FRONT OF YOU or a TA. They can bring books and stuff for quoting, and nothing else.

I always had too much on my mind to have the time plagiarize.

I like your way of dealing.

Although I was in a group project one semester which caused me to get an "F" on a paper that was worth 30% of my grade, because one guy, and this was his excuse "No one ever taught me how to use footnotes".

I still see his face, and punch it hard every now and then.

Hmmm....
To be, or not to be, that is the question
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

What? What's wrong? I wrote that.
