The biggest lie in the world is saying "I'm fine." Amiritie? But, imagine the response to people telling the truth. I.E.: A friend you meet on the street...idly you ask: How Are You? Them breaking down, and crying..My Life is in Tatters, thank you for asking! I'd like to go now...Soooo...what would you do, then, upon hearing the actual truth?//

To those people who say they never lie. They lie almost every day. It's a social lie... Social lies are meant for a reason.

Usually, when asked, i say "alright" no lies. If someone i ask has issues i will tey and help, even if its just a hand on the shoulder

Social lying is meant for a reason. It isn't an appropriate arena for bringing your troubles out. Especially not while passing someone by on the street.

Save it for...later. Or say "call me"...

It has become a little 'joke' , among some of my loved ones and I. There are various responses to the question, even WHEN the person asking actually cares. :)

"Pretty good, not too bad, I'm okay, could be worse, fair to middlin'....".

Personally, I do not consider not subjecting someone inquiring to exactly how one is doing, to be an actual lie. Not of the really concerning kind, anyway. I have no doubt that even those of us who really value honesty in ourselves and others, do indeed not always tell someone exactly how they really doing.

I have a laptop. It somehow rejected my router. Its happened before. I need to call for tech help to get it back online.

I dont sit still well. So this suits me.

Still need to fix it though.

Oh I would rather someone tell me what is wrong then say they are fine when I know good & well they are not. That very question has cause me more issues than I care to count. I have three friends that if I actually say I am fine & I am not all hell breaks loose.

This occurred last week. I said "I am fine" which was met with "Bullshit, I don't know how you are fooling because I know I ain't a dumbass & your mama didn't raise a liar. I wasn't fine but I don't like troubling anyone.
