Timed Scenario 7

Scenario: It is your first day at a new job, and you want to make a good impression. You seem to be getting along with your coworkers. During your lunch break, only you and one other person who you have been chatting with all day are in the room. The coworker bumps into the lunch break room's TV, and it falls and shatters. The manager comes into the room following the noise, asking what happened. The manager is upset because there are insufficient funds to replace the TV. Your coworker lies and says that the TV fell on its own.

What would you do in your position?

The manager asks you directly if you had any part in the TV breaking or if you have any idea what could have occurred. How would you respond if you were being accused?

Do you believe lying is acceptable if it causes nobody harm?
