Would I Lie To You?

The fact is everyone lies. Some are just not as good as others.

Raft3r is a terrible liar.

I cannot lie to save my life. You can actually see in my eyes if I’m not telling the truth. Pinocchio has nothing on me.

So to all I had previous relationships with, rest assured I never lied. I just didn't love you enough.

I recently read an article on how job seekers tend to lie about basic details on their resumes. Almost 20% lie about their previous employments and/or academic backgrounds.

This is a bit alarming since it reflects on how bad our economy is. People are willing to misrepresent themselves to get better paying jobs.

You can’t blame them for trying, though. Times are hard. We do what we can to survive.

Lying has terrible consequences. It's synonymous to stealing.

I completely agree with sonnet's. But sometimes, you can't help it. You gotta say some little white lies. :D

sonnet's, So ibig sabihin all liars are thieves? =P

salve, Ibang concept naman yata yun white lies, e. Hehe. Yung tipong tinanong ka ng babae kung she gained weight. Tapos sasabihin mo hindi, kahit totoo. Hehe

Raft3R said...

pixie27, Ang hirap yatang magsinungaling. Dapat talagang ready ka 4 the consequences.

hahaha! I recently came across an article about Cristine Reyes, the not so pretty sister of Ara Mina. According to the writer, Cristine's a lying expert kasi she looks you straight in the eyes as she fills you with her lies. Kakaiba no?

sonnet's, Nyahaha. Hottie naman sya, ah. Pero she looks dumb talaga at mukha ngang sinungaling.

I just didn't love you enough. --ouch! sakit naman nyan. but yeah i guess it all boils down to that.

on the job application - a good HR person can actually see through you during an interview..so even if you say a lot of BS you won't get the job when you're not strong on paper. plus pag sablay ang english, lagot. ang sama no..

donna, The truth hurts. Sometimes. Hehe. Teka, HR ka ba? Baka pwede mag-apply! Graduate ako ng Harvard. Plus kuha ko masteral units sa Yale! Nyahaha
