Many people lie or exaggerate about seemingly little things. For example, I've wondered if many are lying or at the very least stretching the truth about the number of partners they've had.

One of those strange things where half of the people are lying and making the number higher, and the other half are lying and making it lower.

It's funny, isn't it? But you do you! What do we know?

People shared some of their thoughts with us after Redditor SleepingOmibozu asked the online community,

"What's something you're 100% sure most people are lying about?"

"How much..."

"How much their side hustle nets them."

When it comes to side hustles, everyone is much more successful than they actually are.

"Steroid abuse..."

"Steroid abuse in the fitness industry."

This is a big one. So many people who say they're natural are juicing.

"I have read..."

"I have read and understood the terms and conditions..."

[deleted]

Stop attacking me! I did not ask for this!

"That they don't..."

"That they don’t pick their nose."

SarcasticSparky

Yeah, right. The number of people I've seen digging for gold in public is so high.

"Fully understanding..."

"Fully understanding the plot of the Metal Gear Solid series."

N_dixon

I stopped trying to. Do I get a cookie? I'd love one.

"How often they clean..."

"How often they clean their bed sheets."

VeggieSmooth

I'm not even going to ask. I think I will be seriously horrified by the answer.

"If you're not busy..."

"About their productivity levels. If you’re not busy, you’re not a good person."

lushsweet

Yeah, whatever. This is as bad as bragging about not taking breaks at work. It's not a good look.

"So many lies."

"Their income. So many lies."

Zyrock9

Many people feel very self conscious about their salaries. It's sad.

"Why they're late."

"Why they’re late."

[deleted]

I'm not late often but when I am it's usually because of something ridiculous where if I said the truth it would sound like a lie.

"Hating the word..."

"Hating the word 'moist.'"

zerocaffeine

I love the word moist and I won't apologise.

You mean there are still people going on about this? It's just a word, people. Calm down.

Life's a competition, apparently. Take what a lot of people tell you with a grain of salt. That's the best advice.

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.

But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

Sex is great, but there are more ways than one to accomplish that euphoric feeling without sex.

There are so many small, ordinary aspects of life that can just send a person and we come across them daily.

A good steak.

A home repair.

The things that make you say...

"I tingle all over."

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
