Dear Dish-It: My Friend Wants Me to Help Him Cheat

Jun 22, 2012

Dear Dish-It,

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?


Dear DWC,

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?

Have Your Say

  • Nope. Never! It's just wrong.
  • Maybe, if my BF/GF wasn't treating me right.
  • I have, but I felt really bad and wouldn't do it again.
  • Yeah, why not? If no one finds out, it's okay.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
