I hate it when someone is asking me to lie for them.grrrrr!Just this morning my sister in law ask me again to lie for them, someone is looking for my mother in law and she wanted me to tell that someone that I don't know their address or even their cell or landline number? The nerve!

Never, never tell a lie, not even a little white lie! Nobody has a good enough memory to make a good liar.

Correct!How I wish they can also realize what you are saying and don't make me suffer the consequences. I love them but I CAN'T TOLERATE them.

I completely know what you mean about hating to lie, and when it comes to something legal like you should do it beyond moral beliefs. If you lie and say you don't know, you're just going to get in trouble. It's probably hard, though, because you may not (or just might! I'll just assume you don't) want to put her in prison, or fine her, or whatever it is, but I certainly see a predicament for you and it must be hard. Just do what you think is best, and I'm sure it will work out well. And no need to get so hot-headed about it (in reference to your emoticon)just take a breath then stop, think, and be chill about it. Good luck!

Hi sis! I know how you feel! It's hard to be in a situation where you don't want to do a thing but have no choice but to follow it because they are your in-laws and as much as possible you don't want anything for them to say any bad words about you. Do you live with them? If not,I guess the best thing is to stay out from them for a while. Or if the phone rings,stay far from the phone,lol! It's bad to lie,we all know it so do anything to make you not lie.

Hi sis!No, I don't live with them. I'm okay now. I'm just really angry this morning because I'm at home busy with all my chores and here they are disturbing me for doing something I don't want to do. I actually didn't lie for them because I hate it. I always tell the truth even they'll get mad at me or say bad words behind my back. At least I know I'm a better person than them.

Hi sis! Yes,that's my friend! It's true,you are far better than them so don't make them do what you feel is not right. I was thinking you don't want them to get angry that's why I told you some ways to avoid it but since you are a brave girl and true to yourself,you don't need those! I admire you for that sis!

Thanks for responding. I totally agree. It is sad that sometimes, the person whom we must trust is asking that favor from us.

I think that is one lie I would have told though. I hate lies being one leads to another. but,there could be a very good reason behind that.

How I wish there is but as far as I know them, they are fond of lying even to the smallest details. Anyway, I'm okay now. I'm just really pissed off a while ago. Thanks for the response!

Personally they should not expect you to Lie for them. If she wanted you to do this did she give you a Good reason? I truthfully would think that since it is your Mother In Law, unless your husband told you this information as well, and the reason why, why would anyone be calling you and asking you information about her? I know personally there is little I could share about mine as I am not really that close but would never expect to have to worry about someone calling and asking questions about them either... Unless they were to ask my husband instead.

That's not really lying for them by giving the details but i think it's inappropriate. Especially if it is your mother inlaw you should talk with her before you give out any details to this person as you don't know their intentions and why they are looking for your mother inlaw. I would also approach this circumstance with caution.

It is sad when someone we know asks us to do something like this. It puts one on the spot and if we are not use to lying we get a bit tongue twisted. I see you did not do it for them from the comment above. I am glad you got to vent a little and we are always happy to hear and help if we can.

Hi there, I also hated something like that. Well, lying is till lying though. When my brother's girlfriend was knocking on the door and asking is my brother home?. My brother immediately told me to tell her that he's out. Duh! why should I lie for him? I just tell him that, go and tell her that you're out.

Hi abatencila, Relax:) Yes it is bad to lie and for sure the person who's looking for your mother-in-law will blame you and will get angry to you if they found out that you are lying. And as you said "Again to lie" so meaning its not only once you did lying for them. If you are really against for this, better you frankly talk to your mother-in-law and to your sister-in-law that they must think the consequences of what they are doing.
