The 15 Most Common Lies . . . How Many Do You Admit to Using?

Lies are all around us.

There are a lot of reasons people LIE . . . anything from not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings, to not wanting to implicate themselves in a liquor store robbery.

Most of them are “little white lies” that are mundane or even unnecessary . . . because the other person may not care, or may realize it’s a lie anyway.

In a new survey, 42% of people say they think their little lies are CONVINCING.  Another 42% admit that a lie has come back to haunt them.  And 51% of people say they feel guilty when they don’t tell the truth, even for something small.
