    So basically my friend tell his parents he's staying at my house when he wasn't and without my consent ... Instead he was out with his other mates, probs doing something he shouldn't ... his parents found out and got real pissed of ... Anywayz he calls me at 1:30 distressed and says can I have ur house number, I said kl .. wats up? he said my dad might phone ur house to confirm im staying over ... He said will ur mum cover for me .. I said no she would never do that .. and he said would ur sis lie for me|? iwas like mate it is 1:30 shes asleep and thats just wrong ... he calls me back and then says will u tell my dad im at urs via a 3-way conference call .. I said look mate im not getting involved in ur business I can't do that .. he was begging and I said look im not lying to ur dad .... Convo ended ... In hindsight i felt I shoulda been more pissed of instead of being kl with the situation ... Anyywaazz, this jus makes our friendship a lil awkward now as we're both in a prestigous course at a prestigous uni and i never expected him to get up to such **** ....
    Nah, he just needs to take his punishment like a man.

    If you're so keen on stressing how 'prestigious' your course and uni are, I'd expect proper English spelling and grammar in your post.

    otherwise, wouldn't worry too much about it. he should have asked you in advance or at least he could have shared a bit more detail on why he wanted you to cover for him.

    I'd cover for one of my close friends. Wouldn't try and get any of my family to cover for them at 1.30 in the morning though.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    I think you did the right thing. It's not up to you to cover for him. He needs to deal with the consequences of his decision, and you shouldn't feel bad for not wanting to lie for him. I think he is wrong to put you in that situation, and to ask you to put your family in that situation as well.

    You ought to consider revising your own grammar first: start with a capital letter at the start of a sentence.

    Tbh your friend should never have put you in that situation in the first place, ringing you up at 1.30am to try and get your family to cover for him? Messed up.
