Liar, Liar...Pants on fire! We all lie from time to time. A new survey found that 80% of respondents admitted to lying. Of those, 42% think they’re pretty good at it, while 43% say they are terrible liars. 52% say they feel guilty after lying, and 42% admit a lie has come back to haunt them. But while lots of people lie, it seems they are more small fibs than whoppers.
According to the survey, these are the Top 10 most common lies:
- “I forgot”
- “I’ll do it tomorrow”
- “I’m listening”
- “I’m busy then”
- “Nice to see you”
- “I don’t have any cash/change”
- “I got stuck in traffic”
- "I don’t know what happened there”
- Not telling the real price of something you bought.
- “I’m not feeling well.”
