Face it- we’ve all done it. I’m not quite sure why, but for one reason or another, we just can’t all be Honest Abe’s 100% of the time. It’s not like it’s a crime, or we are causing any harm by doing it, but WE ALL LIE. And there’s some lies that we are all guilty of telling.
1. I have read and agree to the terms and services
Truth: I could be signing my soul away to the devil right now, but I’m too lazy to read all that fine print.
2. I’ll be ready in five minutes
Truth: I’m running around frantically in my underwear trying on everything in my closet, and I won’t be ready for at least 15 minutes.
3. Ohhh, I get it! That makes sense now.
Truth: You don’t get it but you’re too embarrassed to admit that you still don’t understand what their talking about
4. No officer, I have no idea how fast I was going
Truth #1: I’m not sure what the speed limit is, I think I was going about 80 so I don’t want to chance it.
Truth #2: I was going 80 and I know the speed limit is 55. I just didn’t see you.
5. I’m fine.
Truth: You’re not fine. You’re anything but fine. But you don’t want to talk about it
6. OMG, I never do this!
Truth: You do this. You just don’t want the other person to know. Anyone who goes out of their way to tell someone that they don’t do something is probably a seasoned pro; they just don’t want to admit it.
7. I’m going to start dieting and working out
Truth: No you won’t. Actions speak louder than words, my friend. Don’t talk about it, be about it.
8. I’m not drunk
Truth: You think you can handle your alcohol and seem sober to others. But you don’t.
9. I’ll do it tomorrow
Truth: Tomorrow comes around and you say “I’ll do that tomorrow”
10. I’m only having one drink
Truth: You might even be good enough to have just two, more often than not, you won’t be so lucky. But you can never have just one.
