Got an Answer?
If someone wants to visit or do something and I don’t want to see them I make up start and finish times of a made up event. I usually say I’m busy between 10 and 3 so I don’t have time to do anything before or after.
I once bought a horse without my husband knowing .... I’m not joking.
I had one as a child so REALLY wanted one again. I bought a beautiful Appaloosa gelding and just had it agisted on another property,
I had him for 2 years and hubby never found out or had any idea 😂
Telling my kids "maybe" when I know full well it will never happen.
I used to always down play how much I earnt when I had a high paying job, because I didn't want to seem braggy or boastful or offend anyone
"Sorry I can't attend/have to leave early/will arrive late, I have a personal appointment" - it's not TECHNICALLY a lie. Provided I don't specify what the appointment is for or who it's with, it's true. Right now I have an appointment with my couch. Plus, most people are decent enough to not push for specifics.
"No it's okay I don't take sugar or milk with my tea anyway" - when someone can't afford those things (has happened twice so far).
"I'm good thanks" - no, I'm a train wreck but please don't enquire further.
Where we are going
My in laws use to say dad would like to go
I lie at work all the time to people in their face. They come over to ask me questions because they can not do their own work and can’t be bothered trying to figure it out for themselves so I pretend I don’t know or lead them around and around trying to help them. They think I’m so fantastic for trying so hard. I also tell people how wonderful they are (they are not) and smile and listen to their boring stories.
