We are all liars. Liar Liar, 1997

We are all liars. “Liar Liar”, 1997 film

We are all liars.
Are you a liar? ‘No’ you will say angrily. And so will most people. Nobody like liars. But if somebody asks you a question, “Do you always tell the truth?’ your answer will not be so certain. Suppose you meet someone in the street who you used to go to the office with. “How are you?” – you ask. Lie # 1, you really don’t care. “Fine, thanks”, – he answers. Lie #2, he has got terrible headache. “You look well” – you say. Lie #3. You don’t think he looks well at all. When you say good-bye, you add “Have a good time”. Lie #4 – you actually don’t wish this at all, because you have never liked him. He says “Anyway, let’s keep in touch”. Lie #5 – he hopes he will never see you again. Do you realize that in a single minute 5 lies were told?
