Apart from the obvious factor that you even included your friends name and no doubt the copy was word for word, the purpose of assignments is to learn the material being taught. Simply copying someone else’s work does not provide you the learning experience that doing your own work does. Believe it or not, the purpose of these classes and assignments is to teach you the subject and how to think about the material in a logical way to come to your own conclusions. The purpose is not just to check off the boxes in your teacher’s grade book. You are cheating yourself out of an education when you cheat on your assignments. Furthermore teachers have seen it all before - word for word answers means at least collaboration and probably cheating. I’ll bet you though that the teacher never saw anyone so dumb as to include the name of the person they copied off of. No doubt the teacher showed that one to the other teachers and they had a good laugh.
Well it wasn't the lesson you were supposed to learn, but at least you've hopefully learned something. Same goes for your friend, who was also complicit in this. After all, he agreed to let you copy his work, so he should apologize for letting you be a part of his stupidity, and you should apologize for being equally as stupid, and also for being a cheating little turd.
