I cheated today on a test, and was caught. I wouldn't have admitted to it, unless the person (a peer) caught me and they did, and they said either I would admit and turn myself in or they would, so I did. I cheated my cramming a paper with answers in my pocket and going to the bathroom to look at it. However when I admitted it to the teacher all I said was that I saw a paper with some answers laying on the floor. How much did I lie and how dishonorable is this that I didn't say anything (granted that the act of cheatign was dishonorable to begin with)?
The worse thign is I didn't care that I cheated, I only cared when threatened with osmeoen ratting me out.




Work smarter, not harder.

Cheat your way through high school, I doubt we are really learning things that will help us in life that much.

Umm, you didn't learn it when it counted, on the test.

How do you know? You're in high school!!! You don't know what you'll need to know for your career. You're just making up excuses for not studying hard and slacking off.

You cheated. You got caught. Then you lied about it to not get in trouble.

Grow some balls and do your homework.

PPS-No, I'm not perfect. Never said I was. But my job is to enforce rules and I'm sick and tired of people cheating and taking the cheap and easy way out.

ignore joel, hes an adult. If you cheated. Dont admit it, the kid had no proof. I wouldnt care if I cheated on a test, theres nothing morally wrong with that. And seriously id be [censored] off too if some kid ratted me out on it. its none of his business.

NO! A dictionary is your friend. Spellchecks generally say the word is spelt correctly but not if it is the correct word.

For example: Can ewe say witch flours grow in all wethers?
is spelt correctly.

Learning NOT to cheat in high school is the one lesson you learn in high school that will help you much in life. Ask those people rotting away serving time.

Yes, I'm sorry Joel but I do know where I'm going. After high school I'm goign to college for a couple years, where I'll study exercise physiology, sports medicine, sports psychology and business.
Then I will join the U.S. Marine Corps and serve in the infantry for 4 to 6 years while training in MCMAP to attain at least a 2nd degree black belt in their program if not higher. After that I plan to be a personal trainer and teach martial arts and self protection on the side. I will have a family and I'd like to then have a nice house and whatnot.

About oyur issue with my spelling, that has no relevance to this discussion and was a waste of my time. You wasted the 5 seconds or so it took me to read that. In any case I'm an honors english student; I'm currently reading Moby D ick for recreation and recently read 1984.
I simply type fast.
I take the cheap and easy way out when I dont care, when I do care I'll take the right way out.
Dont come to me with this condescending attitude like you're so much better than me becuase you know what you're not. Sorry to break that to you. You dont really know me so dont judge me. I have areas where I'll freely admit I'm plenty dishonorable but in other areas I honorable and show integrity. LAtely I've fallen quite a bit, but that happens it's life. We cant be great all the time nor can we be great at everything. You specialise i na few areas and everything else you do only whats necessary, unless oyu want to live ot work or live ot study and I'd rather study and work to live.

Storm

You ought to go back and read my post.

Like I said, you have little room to BMW about someone else breaking the "rules" since you broke the "rules" yourself.

Why should the person that caught you cheating be held to higher ethical standard than you apply to yourself?

(BTW--the Corp takes a very dim view of people that try and "shortcut" things--;) )

As I mentioned--its not always about "you."

"You" may not care--perhaps the other guy did?

Perhaps the teachers cares?

And they acted on THIER feelings just as you did.

Nobody is perfect--certainly not me.

But you make your own choices--so you have only yourself to blame or reward.

That's hard, but that's life.

Really the only intent that is legitimate would be to have a clean consciensce. If it is not for that reason then it is likely just for revenge or to cause pain.
