Top 10 Lies We Tell

By: Zach Fulwood

You are a liar! All you do is lie. You wake up in the morning and start your day off with a lie. But it’s okay because we all do it. Here’s a list of the most common everyday lies you tell:

 

10. “No really, I’m fine.”

This is literally everybody’s go-to response when someone asks if they’re okay. It’s also literally a lie every time someone says it. You could be skydiving and have your parachute fail and 20 feet before you hit the ground be asked if you’re okay and your response will most likely be “I’m fine.”

9. “I know what you mean.”

This is another very common lie we tell whenever we’re engaged in a long conversation where someone is sharing their feelings. You don’t want to come off as insensitive by being honest with the fact that you absolutely cannot relate to your friends’ experience. So you lie instead and nod your head in agreement while saying “I know what you mean.”

8. “I’m not that hungry.”

You’re hanging out with your significant other’s family and their mother asks if you’re hungry and offers to make you a plate. You respond by saying “absolutely” and she makes you a meal that could feed five small villages. Sound familiar? It shouldn’t because this is the exact opposite of what we do.

7. “I love you too.”

Oh really? If you did, you would have said it first.

6. “Lol”

If every text starts or ends with this, just know that your conversation is hardly as funny as it may seem.

5. “I’m on my way.”

No you’re not. You’re about 15 minutes from being on your way.

4. “I have no regrets.”

Yes you do. More specifically, you regret the entire 11th grade. Don’t lie and say that you don’t regret anything because all of those mistakes are what made you who you are. You’re not a fortune cookie and you don’t work for Hallmark.

3. “Sorry, I’ve been so busy.”

I understand. You’ve been so busy posting yourself binge watching Netflix movies on Snapchat with a “so bored” caption and doing everything but working that it took you seven whole hours to reply to my text.

2. “It was nice to meet you.”

You could’ve met the devil himself and this is still what you would say after meeting him.

1. “I have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.”

You didn’t even read the first sentence. I didn’t either and there’s not a person alive who ever will.
