Would you rat on a friend? If you knew that your best friend had cheated on her tax return, would you turn her in? What if she cheated on a test and could get expelled? Would you keep your mouth shut and let her get away with it? Do you think that you would be a good friend if you let her get away with a crime?

I would defnitely not rat on my friend if she cheated on on her man, or a test, or even her tax return..etc..etc. If she is my best friend why would I betray her trust like that? I would however let her know what she was doing was wrong and she could get in trouble BUT I would never rat on her if she did cheat. I would let know if her butt was to go to jail for any of her crimes that her kid would have a roof over his head no matter what!

If you care enough for her and you feel it would be best to turn her in then do so, but you will be risking the loss of a friend if you do. However She did the wrong thing, she commited a crime and got away with it, of course if you rat on her then she may wind up in jail. It basically depends on how much you care for your friend.

I would never rat on a friend. When I was growing up we had an unwritten law that you don't rat out friends for any reason. Deal with it between yourselves but never rat. Nowadays I work with a younger generation and I can't believe the way they rat each other out at any opportunity. Hopefully the next generation will abide by the unwritten laws of friendship.

Hello beautyqueen26 Maybe I will tell tell her personally, and make her understand that she do something wrong and not safe. If she is my real best friend, she will understand and will changes a little or maybe think about that. I don't like cheating and I always follow the rules. And I want my friend to be a cheater too. God bless you *angel www.beautycosmetictips.com
