I don't like it when people lie to me. I'm just sayin'.......
I'm not talking about something like, "Why, no, there's no surprise birthday party for you tomorrow night." That, I can understand.
No, I'm talking about the big whoppers, the sort where you look me in the eye and flat-out tell me something that isn't true about important matters. I do not take kindly to bald-faced deception under those circumstances.
Maybe you think I can't handle it. Maybe you think you're sparing my feelings somehow by lying to me. You're wrong.
I can handle the truth. I may not be happy with what I hear, but eventually I'll work my way past it and be able to deal with it. The truth is better, pure and simple.
And as for "sparing my feelings" or not wanting to hurt me.........a noble sentiment, but just how hurt do you think I'm going to feel when I find out the truth? And the majority of the time, the truth does make itself known. Somehow or another, I find out.
And when I do.......there will be consequences. I'm just sayin'......
