Lies can be harmless....right?!

As Dr. House famously said, everybody lies. Aren't you curious to see what your fellow humans are occupying themselves lying about?

Redditor el___diablo asked:

What was the last lie you told ?

Behold, the recent lie museum.

Unsure

A friend gave me a bunch of squash from his garden. I hate squash. I brought the bag of squash to work so my co-workers could take them home. I don't know why but this became a big deal and all day long everyone asked me how I grew so much squash. Rather than tell them that the squash came from a friend I lied and told them that I grew the squash. I don't know why I did this.

Lollygagging

I just told my coworker I was in the middle of something very important. I'm not doing sh-t, other than reading this thread.

Cricketing

"Sorry I thought I responded to your text but never pushed send :("

Hoarding

I told my 5 year old we are out of candy.

There is plenty of candy.

And it's mine.

A Plan

Told my boss just now that I'm leaving work early today for a doctors appointment. I don't feel well.

Truth is I have an interview at 3pm. They received my resume sumitted last night and want to talk ASAP.

Not feeling well is a lead-in for me to take tomorrow off because I have another interview, with a different company than the one today.

Clear Lies

Last night encountered 2 drunken girls attempting to lift a rock. They asked me to help them lift it. My response?

"Sorry, I don't have any arms."

I very clearly have arms.

No Notes

"I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it surely"

Deception For A Good Cause

I'm helping my mom's boyfriend plan his proposal to her, so we've both been lying to her pretty steadily which has been enjoyable.

Toxic Masculin-IT-y

A guy on an online dating sight was trying to show me pictures of his family jewels, I kept saying the links were broken to see how many different places he'd try to upload it, and how much tech support he'd offer to fix whatever the problem might be on my end.

Turns out the answer is four.

But Why Did He Want Them?

"Sorry sir, we don't have any green bananas." We did have green bananas. We always have green bananas

Poor Pups

I told my dogs before we left for a morning of errands that we would be back in a few minutes.... I am an awful person.

Want To Be Alone

I am totally down to hang out this weekend! Reality - I am laying in bed and doing nothing all weekend. I've had a rough two weeks.

I DO Work Here

"No ma'am, we don't sell [enter product I know for a fact isn't sold at my job]. They only come in [enter alternative product we do sell that she doesn't want]."

"Are you checking??"

"Yes, I'm checking."

Reported

Have you heard of anyone with a laptop for sale for cheap? I just started school and I really need one actually I was trying to find the street kid who stole my best friends laptop. Managed to get some info and pass it along and today her boyfriend called me to tell me he tracked it down and the jerk was in the back of a cop car for theft. Yay! She got it back!

Surprise

Yesterday I left my husband a voicemail saying I was stuck in a meeting at work. I was actually getting ready to board a plane to North Carolina where he had a long layover as a surprise visit for our 5th Anniversary. The timing was right with this AskReddit question I guess.

Nobody Told This Lie

I'm glad I have a free U2 album on my phone now

The Brain Is A Labyrinth

"What are you thinking about" "I'm trying to figure out the most efficient ways to present the sales model to corporate"

Not true. I spent the last ten minutes wondering how long will it take me to selectively breed bears to a smaller size so I can sell pet-house bears.

Dreaming Or Lying

I told the girl I have been hooking up with that I had dreamed I was waking up next to her and I was extremely disappointed when I woke up alone. Granted, I was extremely disappointed when I woke up, but I didnt have any dreams last night.

Who Actually Lols?

I just texted "lol" to a friend. I did not, in fact, laugh out loud. I am a dishonest person.

To Get A Job

Had an interview this morning-- so many lies.

"Talk about a time when you didn't effectively prioritize your workload. What were the consequences?"

"I always effectively prioritize my workload and have great time management skills."

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
