There’s being polite…

and then there’s flat out lying to save face.

I guess I’m considered kind of an A-hole, ‘cos I won’t save face. If I don’t want to see you again, or do something, I will just say so. If I don’t like something or somebody, I will just say so.
I like to think it saves me the trouble of having to come up with excuses later on. I’ve been told I lack tact, and, well, I can’t deny that. I tried tact once and decided a long time ago that I didn’t want any.

The only need to lie, as far as I can see, is so that I avoid the flack I get for being honest. If being by myself most of the time is the price I have to pay for honesty, I’ll pay it. If I have to lie, even if it’s just a white lie, to be somebody’s friend, I don’t want to.

Of course we all lie. Every single one of us. Even me. I’m just no good at it & pretty much anybody can see right through any lie I try to tell.

Not really sure where I’m going with this post, it’s just been on my mind today – I hate it when people tell me one thing, but, show me another.
“Yeah, I’ll be right over”….five hours later, they’re not around
“I’ll give you a call next week”…..don’t hear from them for a month
“Of course, I want to see you again”….nada

People, I’d have far more respect for you if you just said what you meant & meant what you said.

    I hear that all too well. I don’t get it. don’t you feel sometimes as if you’re living in just one big charade? I’m glad someone is aware of this. It seems all too rare today.

    Something I come across everyday. My being open about my thoughts has got me labeled as Stubborn, ‘not-a-team-player’, bossy in office. It hurts at times, to be lonely, but most times, I am glad because that gives me a chance to be exactly myself without being worried about pretending to be someone that I am absolutely not.
