I tell white lies all the time. Just this morning, I told someone I didn’t drink last night, when in all reality, I had two beers before dinner, two drinks at dinner, and a beer at a bar after. But telling people at work that you’re grinding with a slight headache isn’t exactly the best look, so sometimes you have to put up a front of smoke and mirrors in order to stay in everyone’s good graces.
A study done by DirecTV polled 2,000 people to see which white lies are worse than others based on a scale of 1 to 5. It revealed that some “white lies” are actually considered to be actual lies, and you’re probably a scum human if you’re telling them.
I mean, if a girl tells you she’s on birth control when she isn’t, that’s a dealbreaker. On the flipside, if you think I’m telling any potential girls my actual number of people I’ve slept with, you’ve got another thing coming. As far as everything else? Meh, doesn’t seem that bad to me, if we’re being honest. I’ve probably told most of those in the last month, if not the last week.
You know what Joe Montana said — “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.” .
