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

I have a friend, but lately he hasn't been coming to school much, I'd say he comes for about a week once every 4 weeks, and when the weekend comes around, he just doesn't come back for a while. He says that he's fine, but I don't know what I should do, since he clearly isn't fine. There has even been rumour that he has been faking depression to get out of school. I really don't know what I should do, I don't know whether I should call him, talk to some of his friends, wait until he comes back an have a proper talk or just let it go. And lately when I have been seeing him, I've been noticing how differently he has been acting, and I used to feel that we had a strong connection, but these days just being around him feels awkward. I have no idea what I should do, if I should do something, or even if it's worth keeping him in my life... - Lanturnizer6

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 one I usually say, even when I’m not good. I don’t want to push my problems on others - MarioNinja101

You can always tell me your problems though...what are friends for? - NightmareCinema

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

I think a lot of people try to do their best not to lie in their lives. Sure lying happens once in someone's life, but in some occasions, some people didn't intend to do it. - CrimsonShark

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

Well everyone has lied at least once in their lives, so yea - MarioNinja101

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

Some dresses just are not made for certain people. They would look better on someone else. - goldstar

6 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

Wait, do you mean one hour? - MrCoolC

5 minutes later...
You’re not here.
Read the message again! - lovefrombadlands

7 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

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

You forgot, or you just don’t want to do it?

10 I Don't Care

YOU CARE! You even gave a damn and replied!

After all I’ve done for you. - goldstar

The Newcomers

? Don't worry about me!

The Contenders

11 LOL

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

For real who even laughs?

There are some times where I put LOL and actually laugh, but for most of the time I don’t LOL (see what I did there? ) - MarioNinja101

Real life
zzzz, I’m tired and bored. - lovefrombadlands

12 I Am Fine

I'm fine, I just got fired from my job you know...

I do this a lot

Nobody ever actually means they are fine when they say it, the y just say it so that the person asking leaves them alone

13 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!

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

I care about everyone to a certain extent. If you’re my family or you’re one of my close friends/just friends, then I care for you a lot. Even if you’re a bully, jerk, or someone I don’t know much, I still care for you but not as much as my closest family and friends - MarioNinja101

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

No sir. - goldstar

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

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

Haha that picture

That should be number 1 - bravenwolfzx

it sucks

Really? come on!

31 Santa is Real
32 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

I am straight though, unless it is a lie told by certain people. but yeah, i�'m legitimately straight. - zoocksycootserana

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)

33 It's Seven Inches

Go to Mocospace and they all brag about have ten inches, which is hilarious cause they're probably one inch - bobbythebrony

34 I Can't Hear You

Aye aye captain. Ohh, who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Sponge bob square pants. Absorbant and yellow and porous is he. - goldstar

35 I've Done It Before

Doctors in particular. - PianoQueen

40 Yum! This Tastes Good

Sometimes my dad makes food that I didn't like but I say it's good just to be nice

41 God Exists

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

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

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

There is no real proof it does or doesn't exist. so both sides could be a lie for this one. - zoocksycootserana

42 I Don't Like Him/Her
43 What?

--- even thought you completely heard what that guy said.

44 I Didn't "Purposely" Hurt Them

If one of my classmates say this, I'll laugh - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
