Have you ever had to lie?
A lot of people when asked if they lie sometimes, I am sure so many would say no they had never lied. isn't a lie?
I confess, sometimes I have lied in past jobs to save people from embarassment. For example, a client calls in saying they want something done, but they have forgetten they have already completed that task a few days ago. So I "pretend" (lie), basically going through the motions, of completing a task that's already finished.
I often find this is the path of least resistance and is the best way to deliver customer service. I came up with this "technique" through experience. In my youth I told the truth and while it rarely happened, I ran at times ran into the attitude of the following, "what do you mean it's already done?!"
Of course. But when I lie it is usually because I don't want to be blunt with someone and hurt their feelings...and this is usually with my "elders." It can be hard to be totally honest when there is a pretty obvious generation gap.
No,I don't prefer that either.Better to face problem by telling the truth rather than feel ashamed of by following wrong path.There is solution I follow Mahatma Gandhiji's ideology.I have read his auto-biography and was much impressed by his ideas about telling truth.Truth prevails.In fact,it's very easy to tell lie but you need strong will power to tell the truth.
Yes. i have to admit that. I lied so many times. But i dont consider myself as a liar. I guess there is a thin line between a chronic liar and liar with good purpose.
every person i've ever met has lied. not one person can honestly say they have never lied, if they do, ironically ,they are lying.
lying is not a good thing to be known by but sometimes people do it anyway, sometimes to keep themselves or loved ones out of trouble, or to prevent one from over reacting if told the truth.
I tell lies sometimes to save the people i love.
for example, doctors lie to their patient just to give them hope and sometimes it makes them feel better...
Yes i have lied and it is to save an unfavorable situations or to ameliorate predicted unpleasant situations.
Of course everyone has to lie. There are many situations when telling the truth would land you in trouble and the only way out would be to lie. I have to lie many times and that's probably in my office. Being a part of the management I have had to lie many times to keep the production running.

How many times do you lie?We all lie everyday, whether it is to ourselves, our kids, our family, our friends, or complete strangers. Most people don't realize they lie as much as they do. How many times do you think you tell a lie on any given day?

Is it better to lie than to hurt someone's feelings for being honest?
