What Is The Worst Lie You've Ever Told?
March 8, 2018 8:49am CST
When I was in 8th grade I forgot to do my homework so I went to the teacher and told her that my grandpa suddenly died of a heart attack. That's not the worst part, though, it's that both my grandpas were dead before I was even born. My parents got condolences.

Ooh that was a bit naughty! I've told a few lies in my time but one that stands out is when I was attending a job interview I needed a certain qualification that I didn't have. I told the interviewer that I had it and he didn't ask for proof so I got the job and did well there so no harm done.
I was grounded for a week. My parents are the most honest people on earth. You see the first time I ever lied to my mom was on November 23rd, 2017. She told me to go to grocery shop to buy some food and gave 10 dollars. I only spent 8 dollars but told her that I used all the money she gave me. She never knew about it but I couldn't look her in the eyes for two days.
@houda28 And you remember the date ? You should have better given back these 2 dollars if you have so much remorse. I do not remember to have lied to my mother. I did a few friendly lies to my father in his last years. I usually never lie, or a lie of omission times to times, lying is not in my nature.

Oh dear, that was a big lie you told. I told my first grade teacher that I had pet squirrels in a cage in my garage, and every day I would tell the class about all the cute things the squirrels were doing. My teacher called my mother and asked if I could bring the squirrels to school. I did not have any squirrels in a cage in my garage.
It happened weeks ago. It's not actually worst lie, yet still a lie for good reason. My former co-workers from my previous company invited me over the phone for a Friday night's drink. I didn't want to go but I could not tell them directly. I invented an excuse, saying I was in another town. They insisted that they fetch me there. I objected No, it is 27 km away. I lied just to avoid night's out.
