Hello MYLOTTERS, How will you react when your lie get caught??? I will be embarassed and will say sorry to the person who got hurt by my lie.And if it was for good i will try to convince people but if still they don't get convinced i will give up and say sorry at the end.I will never argue for it once i am caught. What about you??

hi sjvg If i did lie and got caught I would of course be most embarassed and will apologize at once. But I seldom lie as to me honesty is always the best policy. To lie is to have to remember allthe things you gave as the truth and most of the time a liar gets tripped because he or she cannot remember all the crap he or she invented.so its a lot less complicated just to be honest and not have to try and remember all the false things you said.

@ Mrs Hatley thats right when people tend to lie more and get caught he/she forgets what he lied so its better to avoid lying as its not difficult to speak truth most of the time. @ jlyn it happens with when my lies are caught i become nervous and forget what i lied and try to escape from the scene.

If I lie, it's always in a good manner but if I get caught for it, I guess I would just have to reveal the truth why I did that in the first place.

I think if someone caught me lying i would've felt like sweating because of the situation that I am. I feel like the fuzzy thing in my body when I get caught of anything, including lies. That's why I try not to do it much but who knows in the future. What will happen? Hmmm.

Hello OOfear, Thats good to see that you avoid lying to people as you have some sort of fear that if it will be caught what will happen in the future unlike most of the people who easily lie for their advantage with anyone.

Hi sj Well if person who caught us is not satisfied from the reason of our lie then better we say sorry either it was good or bad reason. Well I used to do the same thing like you mentioned. Generally I not used to speak lie and if i do for some purpose then surly i say sorry when it got open.

@ AKP Thats the best thing we can do when we are caught though we should try that we don't lie in any situation but then practically it don't happen in life as we have to one or other time lie for some reason. @ Why don't you beleive AKP?.

hi sj, I never had to lie when something goes wrong in my personal life. But in the profile I handled earlier, for almost all the phone calls I had to lie as the conditions are such that boss do not want to speak to the caller but wants to get his message. And in my work place everyone knows how well I handle such issues and most of the calls were diverted to me. Once it happened that someone came to see me for official purpose and i lied to him that i was not in office (though i was not in my dept. but some other department). The funniest part was we were face to face at the dept. which I was at that time, then again i lied to him that I was about to call him. Also I had to take him to cafeteria for a cup of Tea. That day i learned we can't fool everyone every time.

Hello viju, This is what one should understand that every time we cannot get benefits of telling lies sometime we get stuck in it and at that time we get only embarassment nothing else so we should always try not to lie in any situation.

Of course, I will say sorry.. And then I will try to explain why I was lying with some good reasons. I am not going to make another lie when I explain it though. And then I will say sorry again.. If I was telling a black and bad lies, then I can't argue anything when I am being caught. They may hate me and I deserved it. So I will try my best to not making any black lies so I can avoid such a big trouble..

Hello varier, Oh yes black and big lies are more dangerous as you don't have nothing to say when you are caught otherwise you can always try to convince people why you lied.

Thats right when people are caught with their lies they tend to hide it by speaking more lies so its always better to apoplogise once you are caught and its more better if we try to avoid speaking lie.

It is good to convince people about our lies, as long as we are not making another lies.. It just would make another big problem..

I always caught with my husband coz he know me well. I am not a liar but sometimes i need to do this for some personal matter. But he always caught me and i feel embarrassed with that. So when such time come i feel guilty and better to be quite all the while for peaceful living. But i feel sad and really sad doing that.

That is the reason why I do not lie. Telling a lie depends on the situation. If someone is looking for a a friend and looks very angry,I will deny the whereabout of the missing person to avoid trouble or worse scenario. But telling a lie like "I am the manager in a big company" then someone heard and say ..." oh yes,I agree,you are the manager in utility section in a big company" have a good day

Hello Jaiho, Thats true if it depends what do we lie according to that only we face it when we are caught. But to say that you don't lie is itself a lie becuase i think there would be no one in the world who don't lie.

This is an embarrassing moment sjvg1976 once u were caught with your lie. But for sure there is a good reason in doing this, not unless you used to do it often....? This is another issue.

Yes an immediate apology is rendered and explanation as to why the lie occurred. I would feel so bad if I did not come clean as the trust can be broken, then I would have two issues which is not being trusted again and living with my guilty conscious. If the person is not convinced of my sincerity I will have felt that although I was wrong that at least I tried and have no more to fear. Hoping that maybe one day I can once again be trusted.

Hello HWG, Thats right once we are caught and could not be able to convince that person for our lies we always feel guilty for it till that person is convinced. And the only thing in the situation when we are caught there is nothing left just to apologise.

hi sjvg1976 nice question ..it depends on the person to whom i said lie if its my friend or family they will understand if any other outsider and we know that he is going to argue with us for what we say and wont understand then i will ...say no i said it in other way and you thought it in other way..and i will divert the topic..mostly i will record the calls i get and the important discussions when happens ...

Hello Sye, Thats right its easy to convince freinds and family members rather than others you can always convince them easily as they trust you but for others you really need the courage to divert the topic.And in most of the situation i have encountered i failed to convince people and had to run away from the scene.hehehe

I would feel really embarrassed and start blushing is heck if I was caught in lie that's why to avoid awkward situations like this, I hardly lie. My friend was caught lying fair and square by another friend and my friend was so embarrassed and ashamed that she tried avoiding the other friend she lied to. I told her that she can't do that on a long term and after a few days she started talking to the other friend like nothing happened. But it is very awkward getting caught in a lie, especially when you're in big trouble! It's so embarrassing and the best way to solve it is to apologize or you could pretend it never happened.

Hello triple, Thats very true the best way is to apologize as we have to keep on lying to hide one lie so its better to stop at one lie and say sorry to the peson who is effected.Sometimes due to small lies friendship gets broken so we should think before lying as it may cause some serious effects.

It depends though. If lying is necessary to preserve something important. Then the lie will go on. If indeed my lying cause pain and sadness, I would resort to humility then.

Hello John, But its not a good habit as we have to speak many lies to hide one so it is better if we stop at one and apologise for it.

I will tell a lie after being convinced that it is in my interest and in the interest of relationship with the other person. But if I am caught, finished immediate surrender only helps. What is the point in arguing after being caught. But I avoid telling lies because I need not remember what I told X or Y or Z. that is why it is advantageous to speak the truth always.
