I wonder, what is the real reason we cheat? How are we helping ourselves? I will never forget the ONE time in High School that I cheated on an exam. I had it all worked out with a cheat sheet and all. I completely cheated. That class was first period, and when I was in high school, we had seven periods a day. Sixth period was that teacher's free period from whose class I cheated on the exam. I could not live with myself. I had always been top of the class and felt terrible about what I did. I went to her in sixth period and informed her that I cheated and I was sorry and did not deserve the grade that I was to receive.I had no idea of the punishment that would await me, but she ended up allowing me to retake the test the next week so that I would have time to study. This was very generous of her. I was in the 10th grade at the time.
