Lies Men and Women Tell….

Thursday Thirteen

This morning the announcers on my favorite local radio station were talking about the top ten lies that men and women tell their spouses, girlfriends and boyfriends. I thought the topic would make an interesting topic for my Thursday Thirteen.

Thirteen Lies Men and Women Tell

1. Both Women and Men: Nothing’s wrong. I’m fine.

2. Men: This will be my last drink.

3. Women: Oh, this isn’t new. I’ve had it for ages.

4. Men: Sorry, I missed your call.

5. Women: It was in the sale.

6. Men: I’m stuck in traffic.

7. Women: I’ve got a headache.

8. Men: I didn’t have that much to drink.

9. Women: It wasn’t that expensive.

10. Men: I’m on my way.

11. Women: I don’t know where it is, I haven’t touched it.

12. Women: No, I didn’t throw it away.

13. Men: No, your bum doesn’t look big in that.

Okay, I confess. Basically I’m a very honest person. I can’t lie to save myself, but I might have used a couple of these white lies in the past.

What about you? Have you used any of these white lies?

    Oh, and have I mentioned how much I love love love your cover for “The Bottom Line”??? Gorrrgeous.

  6. Yup – I’ve used a few of those, too. :lol:

    My hubby is fond of the saying “Lies have short legs” – mainly because he’s absolute rubbish at telling lies. Lucky for me. :)

  7. Oh, heaven help me, I’ve used more of the male lines. What does that say about me?

  8. I totally say number 3 and my hubby totally says number 10! LOL!

  9. Love the list…I’ve used #1,#3, #5 and #9…lol…I’ll admit that I’ve also stretched the truth a bit about my weight on my driver’s license… know…said that I weigh 10 lbs less than what the scale actually said in the am :blush:

  10. I must be weird. None of these lies comes up much between my dh and I.

  11. What? I’ve never used any of these lies. :mrgreen:

  13. Would *I* tell a lie? Never. *dodges lightning*

  14. Me? Noooo *crosses fingers behind back and walks away whistling*

  15. Anthony – you’re probably right, but sometimes an honest opinion is okay. ;)

    Adelle – LOL that’s true. they’re sort of half lies, depending on the circumstances.

  16. Jennifer – thanks! I love the cover too. I think it’s very striking.

  17. When I say I have a headache, I really have a headache. My doctor said I have super sensitive sinuses.

    Er, after reading this list maybe I should have gotten that in writing? :eek:

    Happy TT.

  18. Nope, can’t say I’ve ever used ANY of these… :wink:
