I hate being lied to

by Volker Weber

Especially when I would have understood the truth much better. When confronted with the lie, the other person said: "Sorry, I am only telling you what I have been told to share with you".

Ahhh... another cryptic "vowe vent".

Half the fun is trying to guess what it's about ;)

Rock, very simple. The person who lied to me knows. And others who have not yet lied to me might consider in the future that this is not the easier road. :-)

We all assume we are being lied to. It somehow became the modus operandi. But it still does not work with me.

I normally can stand the lies, as corporate business brings along the routine of taking everything said with a grain of salt. I can hardly fight the desire to vomit on hearing that explanation.

I only lied to you when I said I would never lie to you except when I told you there were better bourbons than Pappy Van Winkle... :-)

Newbs, this is not confession time. :-)

I'd rather discuss the possibilities than confess ;-)
As I understand it you're not talking about not saying all there is but about really lieing, correct? I guess we all can agree, that it's ok to tell another person that you can't tell any more than you already told (or anything at all) cause you're not allowed to. Consciously telling something wrong however is a different story and IMHO bad per definition. Santa Clause is an exception. And the Easter bunny. And the aliens obducting bad children when they don't listen to their parents. And ...

And your surprised/upset because?

"I am a liar" - a statement that can never logically work.

Ben Rose, 2008-08-21

It can. A single lie makes you a liar.

Volker Weber, 2008-08-21

"I always lie" is the one you are looking for, Ben.

It's funny too - I know there are vowe readers out there who see this, and feel the same way they do in church.

"Hey, that preacher is talking about me!! How does he know I did that last Saturday night, with the cow, the stripper, and an egg beater?"

People all over vowe land are wondering if you're talking about them. At least the naughty ones are.

Rock, I'll have you know that I've NEVER used a cow................
