Morally Right/Wrong?

    We have a test tomorrow and today in school I had some useful notes regarding the test. It was a small section but one guaranteed to come up on the test and I had spent time revising and writing the notes. It wasn't simple, but my tutor and me managed to work out a particular question and I made notes on it.

    Today in school I showed a close friend what to do from the notes and how the problem works as he is helpful and always helps me when I need it.

    Some guy, ABC who is horrible to me, pinches my skin, jabs me in the sides and often tries to humiliate me to look good with girls. On a side note, I asked him for help on Monday and he refused saying he didn't want to tell me.

    ABC then copied my notes and I felt aggreived but couldn't say no as he'd try to humiliate me again. I still felt it wasn't fair that he was using me because he wanted my notes because he didn't have them but usually he is a **** to me. Naturally I wanted revenge!

    So.. I went into his locker, got his bag and took my sheet out and threw it in the bin. It was on the back of a practice paper but he doesn't really care so I just got it and threw it in the bin.

    But since then my guilt is really overcoming me, I have heard that he has been looking a lot for it and phoning people up to ask if they've seen it.

    Was I wrong or right? It's tearing my consience and what would you guys have done?

    This is a toughie the guy sounds like a 100 percent douchebag and well he deserves it, you did the revision and work and he wants to just swoop in and use it without doing anything? Only thing is you probably shouldnt have gone in his locker that could be morally wrong but other then that i think what you did was perfectly fine ! :P

    Meh sounds pretty even to me. You probably shouldn't have gone into his locker but he shouldn't have behaved like he did. You can argue either way but it's fairly close so i wouldn't worry about it too much.

    What would I have done? Not what you did because I'm not the type of person to into someone's private belongings and throw something away.

    What you did, however, was completely understandable. You're pretty even, I'd think you should probably rise above him by just revising better and doing better than him. Him just copying the notes won't make him understand them anyway, if it took you a while with your tutor then it'll take him a while too. So I'd have let go, but definitely don't sweat about what you did

    That depends. Are you a utilitarian, or a virtue ethicist?

    It can be argued like this:

    He treated you like crap.

    A) Treat him like crap and call it even.
    B) Do nothing, stay silent and lose respect for yourself
    C) Be professional and civilized about it


    You choose A in my opinion. Some can say you stoop to his level. Who is at fault? Not entirely you and not entirely him. Both are equally wrong.

    Don't let bullies win and don't be like them.

    Move forward, let that be a lesson for him and you.

    It probably is wrong, but the moral guilt is negligible when compared to the satisfaction of ****ing over a total ****er
