Taking the blame 2013-02-11 16:16:11 Reply

(intentionally)

For something you didn't do so the actual doer receives no punishment.

I've always been taught it's a really nice thing to do, but I question that.

What do you think about 'taking the blame'?

it depends, if I get caught I do more time then say friend A would do, but at the same time I would take the doses in my pocket rather then have my girlfriend serve a day.

I don't take the blame for anyone. Since I despise most people in real life, they can deal with their own problems.

Taking the blame depends on the situation.

Example:

My best friend and I are at his girlfriend's parent's house. My friend breaks something valuable or sentimental to the parents. In order for him to not be in hot water with his girlfriend's parents, I take the blame.

Then there are extreme circumstances where you should never take the blame.

Example:

My friend kills someone and wants me to take the blame.

Why would I ever take the blame for that? I may keep my mouth shut about it because they're my friend, but I'm not going to take the blame for it.

If you have a good friend who just made a mistake and the punishment is not going to be as harsh on you than him (circumstancial); you should take the blame. It's called being a friend.

People like that are assholes in their own way. I'm an asshole in a more obvious way.

It doesn't matter which way you're an asshole. However you chose to go about it won't get you many friends.

are you saying you are the one single fish in the ocean that isn't selfish?

are you Jesus sir?

It all depends on how much trouble we can both afford to get into.
Also, how good of friends we are.

I usually do it intending for another person to take blame out of respect. If they don't, we have problems.

Idiotic and immoral. You, the innocent, is punished while the wrongdoer is unpunished. How is that 'nice'?

Always deny everything guys. Don't point any fingers. Deny deny. Trust me. I've avoided expulsion about 5 times. Most of them within the same school.

If it's the right thing to do, it's the right thing to do.

I've never been in such a situation where I was faced with such an option, though...

I often find myself taking the blame for something when I know I can deal with the blame better than the actual culprit if I am friends with them and want to do it. Otherwise, when I can't deal with it better or don't want to, or if I see it fit for them to deal with it themselves, I let them take the blame instead.

I must be horrible person because I can't think of single occasion whereas I've taken the blame for something I didn't do. Although in the same way I have never made someone else get blamed for something that I've done. So in some weird way I guess I'm just a really honest guy.

I wouldn't consider you a horrible person just because of that. Even if you never did any sorts of good deeds, you still wouldn't be a horrible person until you did bad things in my opinion.
