...and ask me if i like your hairdo, of course to spare your feelings i may lie and say "yeah, its ok" But what really bothers me are people who feel the need to tell huge lies for absolutely no reason at all.
During my teen years i had this friend that used to lie about EVERYTHING. It was so crazy. Everyone always knew she was lying too (but of course very rarely did anyone call her on it). She lied about what her middle name was. She lied about where she was born. She lied about her ethnicity. It was just crazy because they were all unprovoked lies. I couldn't care less whether your middle name was 'helen' or 'honey-baked ham'. It makes no difference to me whether you were born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, or Southside Jamaica, Queens. Honestly, of what importance is that in my life or our friendship?
Then i had a friend who told the most overtold lie in the world- my daddy is rich. To his credit, we were pre-teens at the time so maybe his concept of "rich" was skewed. But despite that, he still managed to bring out some crazy concocted story about his father's wealth. Basically what happened was, he and his family had just moved in to a very nice house a town or two away. Since me and him had been so close since we were toddlers its natural that i had been invited over numerous times. Prior to the purchase of this huge house, he and his family lived in his grandmama's basement. Hmmm. So of course knowing this info i was skeptical about the "wealth" he proclaimed to have. When I asked if he had so much money why did he live with his granny before, he answered well we are so rich that we didn't know what to do with the money!
Oh man, before i go... the other kind of lies I hate, are the ones that people tell you when they know that you already know the truth. Seriously, what the hell?!? How are you going to lie to me about something that I already know the truth about? And then, they have the nerve to give you an attitude when you call them out on their bs. Seriously...
If you're gonna lie, at least make it worthwhile.
