Scholastic News Sticky Situation • January 4, 2010

Sn4-stickysits-010410 Jordy and Arjun were playing a video game at Jordy's house. Arjun accidentally knocked over a glass of juice onto Jordy's computer. Jordy needs to get his computer repaired and thinks Arjun should pay for that. Arjun disagrees. He thinks it's Jordy's fault for keeping his drink too close to his computer. What should Arjun do?

Write a paragraph explaining what you think Arjun should do in the "Post a comment" section below.

Other Scholastic News readers will be posting their thoughts about this week's ethical dilemma, too. So come back to the Sticky Situation blog to discuss their solutions!

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Scholastic News Sticky Situation • January 4, 2010:

i think arjiu should pay and so should jordy because after all there should not be drinks or food next to a computer

NOne of them should pay for it it was the parent's fault for allowing drinks by the computer.

They should tell there parents and they can work it out from there!!

I think Arjun is mean and should pay for it and he'll be paying for it if it were my computer.

maybe arjun should just say no you had the drink to close thats how it happened lets just get over it

They should pay half of the cost because they both did something

Just say he did it and he will try to get the money to get it fixed

They should not fight.Or they both should pay half.

They should clean it up then tell an adult.And should not be mad at eachother

they should both pay half on the computer becuase it was both of there faults

I think the person how spilled the soda should pay for the computer but, if that was my computer I would say "its ok it was a accident,I will pay for it.z

I think he shoud pay to repair the computer. He shoudn't even be drinking near the computer. He probably should never get near it agin.

I think that they both should pay for it ,but Arjun
should appologize.

i think they both should just pay half half.

Arjue should pay for what he does if no.... Jordan can sue Arjue.

Arjun and Jordy should clean it up. Then they should both ask their parents to split the money and pay for it.

WHY DONT THEY JUST BOTH PAY FOR IT HE HAD THE GLASS THERE AND HE SHOULD'NT BE DRINK BY IT AND THE OTHER ONE SHOULD HAVE WATCH WERE HE IS GOIN NEXT TIME.

i think it really was a acident he didn't try to do it and i think you both should pay for it so you can be friends again. i saw that you got real angre and like i said he didn't try to do it

I feel they should not fight and not put drinks on the computer because thats a real danger on a computer

just clean it up and just say sorry

If a friend does do something to hurt your property even if by accident they should pay for the damage. If they are really good friends they'll have to understand that accidents happen and that you have to forgive instead of always blame.

I think that they should stop fighting and clean up the mess that they made. then when there done cleanning up they should be friends again. after they make up they should tell his mom it was a axedent and he didnt mean to spill the juice but one more thing they should try to see if the computer still works before telling what happened and if the computer has a problem tell the mom and say that you cleaned up the mess with my friend

i think that the should both pay for it

i think they should both use their money to by a new computer duhhhhhhh!!!!!!

i think he should say sorry and clean up the mess

i think they should both pay for it.

The drink should've not been too close to the computer

Arjen should clean up his mess. the right thing to do is to pay for the computer if he dropped his drink on it

I think they should both pay half

well i think they should not get that mad at each other. when he spilled he should of said sorry right away. i would of helped paid for a new computer because i would of felt so bad but you need to be careful around computers with drinks so be careful!

I think that each of them should pay half of the price to fix the computer and that they should still be friends.

I think Arjun should pay for the computer becouse hes the one who spilled the juice in the first place.

i think Jordy and Arjun should both pay for it. Arjun pay half and Jordy pay half.

I think they should equally share the cost.

i think they should stop blaming each other and just tell the owners parents no matter what the punishment is.

Arjun should just say that he is sorry and jordy pays for his own computer andthey can still be friends.

I think that Arjun and Jordy should both pay for the damage because it was Jordy's drink and and he kept it too close to the computer. Arjun knocked it down accidentally. I think they should both pay for it but Arjun should apologize to Jordy's family because he's the one who knocked it down. THATS WHAT I THINK!! Peace out, Scholastic!

I think that they should both pay for the damage, but Ajun should also apalojize, since it was him h=who knocked down the juice. THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF IT!!

I think Arjun and Jordy should both pay for the computer. After all, it was an acident and the drink shouldn't have been that close to the computer. First they have to tell Jordy's parents though. Then Arjun can say sorry and they both can help pay.

I think that Arjun should not because Jody was on the computer and plus he wasn't suppose to put a drink near a computer because you know if someone come close it will knock over.

If they were realy friends they wouldnt fight about that. I think they should tell there parents and work it out.

i think arjun shouldnt never put a cup of juice close to the computer because he knows that enymoment that the juice could speel in the computer. and he should say that he sorry because in first place he shouldnt put the computer in the computer.and that he would do it again.

I think that they both pay half of the money because they both where playing video game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i think that both of them are responsible for the accident because jordan shouldnt leave likwid close to a computer and arjun should be morecarefull

he sould tell her mom why did he put the drink in the first place

forgive and froget

Arjun should say sorry to Jordy and Ajun can pay.

Jordy forgives Arjun and they both pay for the computer.

i think arjun should pay for the computer because he was the one who spilled the juice on his friends computer

I think they should split the cost
