    You have a "friend" who has just crossed the line by starting to date someone you are interested in.  Another friend suggests that it would be a great idea to post something on Facebook about your previous "friend."  What do you do?

    • A.

      Both of you come up with some really creative stories that you decide to share on Facebook.

    • B.

      You decide to confront your friend about their action, and if you don't like their answers you can always post those pictures from 2nd grade.

    • C.

      You laugh, but tell your other friend that it wouldn't be a good idea to cause deliberate hurt.

    Correct Answer
    C. You laugh, but tell your other friend that it wouldn't be a good idea to cause deliberate hurt.
    Explanation
    The best course of action in this situation is to choose not to cause deliberate hurt. Laughing off the suggestion shows that you don't take it seriously, but advising against it demonstrates your maturity and empathy. It is important to prioritize kindness and avoid intentionally causing harm to others, even if you may be feeling hurt or upset. Confronting your friend and resorting to posting embarrassing pictures from the past would only escalate the situation and potentially damage your relationships further.

    Your friend just bought a new CD that you really like.  He/she said they don't care if you copy it onto your computer. 

    • A.

      Since they paid for the CD this is legal to do.

    • B.

      You should go and buy your own copy of the CD.

    Correct Answer
    B. You should go and buy your own copy of the CD.
    Explanation
    Even though your friend has given you permission to copy the CD onto your computer, it is still recommended to buy your own copy of the CD. This is because making copies of copyrighted material without the explicit permission of the copyright holder is generally considered illegal. By purchasing your own copy, you are supporting the artist and respecting their rights.
