Liar Liar Pants on Fire!
Everyone hates to be lied to but everyone lies. Why is that? It's fascinating to me. I have actually become a pretty good judge of character and many times I can tell when someone is lying, not all the time but more than not. I have read a few books and watched shows on body language and lies. I am by no means an expert or even great at it but it's very interesting. It's like we are trying to put one over on someone but our bodies are ratting us out.
Most of my close friends and family are aware of my aversion to liars and lies. Take my husband for example, he is actually a pretty honest person NOW. As for when we were dating, not so much. I like to think I had a small hand in him now being honest and forthcoming. Still today I know if I say " how much money did you take out from the ATM?" and he says $20, it's most likely $40. That is a running joke now and I'm pretty sure he tells me the wrong amount on purpose to drive me insane. Also, I have a few friends that when invited out somewhere, they can not or will not tell you they are not going when they know damn well they aren't going. It's always like I might have to work or I can't get a sitter or I think I have my period that weekend. Look, I don't care that you don't want to go just tell me so I can get an accurate head count for the reservation. Jesus People! Is telling the truth really that hard?
