Dear Dish-It: My Friend Wants Me to Help Him Cheat
My friend always wants me to help him cheat on tests. Last time we had a math quiz, I think he copied answers from my page – I feel like telling the teacher because it still bothers me. What should I do?
My Friend Wants Me to Help Him Cheat
First, let’s deal with the problem of your friend copying your last test. I don’t think that the answer to this is to tell your teacher. It doesn’t sound like you have solid proof that your friend cheated off of your quiz – and besides, the incident already happened so it’s best to let it go and take steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again!
Protect Your Page
The next time you have to take a quiz or a test, make sure to protect your answers from people around you who might want to cheat by rounding your back over your desk and moving your arms over your page as you fill in each answer. If your friend asks you ahead of team whether you’ll help him cheat, all you have to say is no. If he doesn’t respect that – are you sure he is your friend?
