Most Common Lies People Tell

what are the most common lies people say?? for me these are the most frequent lies!!

The Top Ten

1 I’m Fine

Yeah like when someone asks "How are you? " and you say "i'm fine" when you fractured a skull or something or you have a really bad fever. This lie is really common. - cosmo

I say this one all the time, but when others say it I look deeply into their eyes an say "dude, its human to be depressed, especially in this world."

This is the most common answer when some one asks "How are you? " you tell them "i'm fine" even though you are gravely sick - madman38

Lie I tell 24/7 - B0S5J4M3S

2 I Have Read & Agreed to the Above Terms and Conditions

There was this one experiment where someone hid a five thousand dollar prize in the terms and conditions and no one claimed it for months. Though I admit, when I was a kid, I used to read these. Then I gave up. They ought to just say:

1. ) don't sue us if you're unhappy.
2. ) this is copyrighted. - keycha1n

The most common lie, without the shadow of a doubt. - PositronWildhawk

My mom forces me to read these, even if they're over 10 pages long. I hate reading these because not only do I not understand 90% of what it says, but it takes forever just to read the whole thing.

Never read it in my life - B0S5J4M3S

3 I Don’t Lie

The most popular lies in our everyday lives. If you say this, then you are being dishonest to yourself first. All of us have lied at least once in our lives, mostly for good. Sometimes even over taken by our evil side. Yes all of us have lied, admit it. - madman38

If I'm being honest, I've only ever told one lie in my life and this is the one... - Britgirl

You're lying by saying you don't lie! -_- - NintendoROCK3T

I don't think I've ever said this in my entire life. - Mcgillacuddy

4 I Am Sick

I tried that did not work

So true

5 Wow! You Look Great In That Dress.

Even though your inner heart says "hell no! You look like a clown" - madman38

Really? I'm not letting my friend go out looking ugly, go ahead, tell her! Or him, depends on how they roll. - keycha1n

Great? Oh my, I think I need to clean my ears. I must've misheard the phrase "Worse than a clown" as "great"! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

6 Don’t Worry! It Will Be Okay!

You tell this even though you know things are gonna get worse - madman38

I do say this often but I have every faith in my heart that things will be okay. I don't just say if for something to say. - Britgirl

7 I Will Be There In 5 Minutes

One of the most common lie to tell your parents and friends - madman38

Yep I say that all the time

5 hours later!
You said 5 minutes.
AUTO CORRECT! - lovefrombadlands

(Asians are about to go to party)
Relatives on phone: Hurry up, everyone else is already here!
Mom: OK OK I'll be there in da 5 minute, ok? (calls out to others in room) Honey! Get ready in 20 minutes!

8 Sorry!! I Forgot

If I didn't forget I usually tell them other honest reason and not lie that I have forgotten

I assure you though, many times I really do forget! Other times... Lets not talk about those. - keycha1n

I really do forget a lot when I say this. -Not a lie I promise. - kennywilliams21

An everyday lie...

11 It's Not Mine

It's mine, but I have a reason why it's not mine right now.

~anyone under the age of 15!

12 LOL

Admit it, who actually laughs every time they send LOL?

For real who even laughs?

13 I Am Fine

I do this a lot

14 I Care About You

I can't speak for others when they say this to me; I can only hope that they mean it because I certainly mean it when I say it. - Britgirl

Out of all the people who have said this to me, I know only 2 were telling the truth

To me, it isn't a lie. I care about others ( expect bullies and other bad people) - JaysTop10List

If someone told me this, I wouldn't believe them - bobbythebrony

15 No Problem

You know what I am talking about. NO PROBLEM - madman38

16 Do You Understand? Yes Sir

This will be number one lie if you are a student. Every time your teacher says "do you understand? " you have a readymade answer "Yes sir" - madman38

17 I Am Part Native American

Lol. I've heard that one a lot!

18 I Don't Know

A thing u say when your to lazy to explain it

19 I Never Said That

I either forgot about it and realized it later, and don't want to admit it for some stupid reason like pride, or you have no evidence, so I'm innocent.

I never said that I was going to go to bed soon.

20 I Didn't Do It I Didn't Do It

Sometimes you say it before you even know what you're being accused of.

Haha that picture

That should be number 1 - bravenwolfzx

35 I'm Straight

Sometimes people will ask you "Are you gay? " It's really annoying. I'M STRAIGHT FOR THE LAST TIME! I've never ever told this lie. - kennywilliams21

Gay people always get touched when they have to face this question ''Are you gay? '' at some extent in their lives, some of them deny it because they don't feel ready to get out of the closet (spanish proverb)

Because bones aren't solid and get bigger as you eat mcdonalds each day. - Skullkid755

Well, it isn't a lie because you can't prove or disprove God's existence. Stop debating since you'll never find good evidence for either. Just believe what you want to believe. - ethanmeinster

I hate this bloody mess ( I am from London) GOD DOES EXIST!

You can't prove God isn't real. You'll know when you die. - kennywilliams21
