I accidentally killed my brother’s pet goldfish because I forgot to stop by his apartment to feed it. I know it’s just a pet, but god knows how much my bro cherished that little thing. Now I’m all caught up. Should I just tell him? Or cover it up by getting an identical one from the pet store? He’s out of town on a real singles tour for a few days and I don't want him to think he can’t rely on me for something as simple as feeding his precious goldfish. What do you guys think?

Come clean. The betrayal of trying to hide it will be worse.

Yes always better to come clean otherwise it will bite you in the butt. Offer to buy him another goldfish and be sincere in your apology. Good luck
