Collegiate football player Manti Te’o is in the news and claiming to have been “catfished” by his cyber girlfriend who has allegedly died of leukemia; however, is this all a hoax? Lance Armstrong is finally confessing to using performance enhancing drugs after years of denying these accusations in an interview with Oprah. If it looks like a “like”, walks like a “lie”, and talks like a “like” it’s probably a lie, but where’s the truth?
Slacker doesn’t think he needs to tell his son that he’s been married before, but he doesn’t want to end up being “caught in a lie” in the future.
What lies have you been caught in?
I’ve had my fair share of white lies and fibs, but I’ve never been dishonest to the point that it would break news or ruin the lives of many people. Basically, I’ve never had to tell a lie in order to gain status, achievement, etc. I’m also a really bad liar so I do my best to avoid it because getting caught in a lie is worse than facing any consequences, which can be bad but can also be a lot worse if you’re not truthful in the first place.
