What Would You Do When A Professor Tells You to Draft Your Own Recommendation?

This hasn't happened to me yet, but I've heard/read that it happened to certain people. Some people got into their dream schools after drafting them and having the profs edited the letters. Some others say don't even bother if a prof ever asks so, let alone the ethical issue.
I'd like to get a "show of hands" whether go for it or avoid at all cost, just in case one of the profs does this when I ask for recommendations in the future.
And are there any other general to-do's or no-no's regarding asking for recommendation letters?
Thanks a lot in advance.
