15 LOL Lies People Can’t Help But Chuckle About, Which Ones Are You Guilty Of?

Sometimes we lie to protect someone. Other times we lie because we can’t think of anything better to say. And bad lies, in particular, are so easy to spot that they’re laughable. 

1. “Sorry, I missed your call.”

Are you, though? Chances are, whatever they wanted to discuss could’ve been sent in a text message. Besides, who talks on the phone these days, anyway, right?

2. “I’ll quit tomorrow.”

We tell ourselves we have the determination and willpower to give up that bad habit at the drop of a dime. But you’ll most likely still have that slice of chocolate cake tonight. Don’t worry—we won’t tell anyone. 

3. “It was nice talking to you.”

It’s the polite thing to say. Manners are important, after all. Even if Uncle Jack talked about his golf swing for an hour and you zoned out about ten minutes in. 

4. “I’ve read the terms and conditions.”

Who really reads the entire terms and conditions?

5. “Your baby is so cute!”

No one wants to tell a parent their baby won’t be the next Gerber Baby model. So, of course, we lie.

6. “I’m almost there.”

Right, you’re almost there. Almost there as in you just rolled out of bed, haven’t showered, and can’t find your keys. But you’re definitely on your way.

7. “If there’s anything I can do, just let me know.”

We do this to sound helpful. But when your neighbor drops off two dogs, five cats, and a rabbit for you to pet sit while they’re out of town – you start to regret what you said. 

8. “I won’t judge you.”

Of course, you won’t judge. At least not out loud. But inside, we know what you’re thinking. 

9. “Sorry, I’m busy right now.”

Does lying around in your underwear watching reruns of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills count as busy? We think so.

10. “I promise.”

In the future, maybe specify how long this promise will last. It’s good to know whether or not your secret will be kept forever or just for the next few days.

11. “Of course, we can be just friends.”

Okay, this one stings a little. If you’re on the receiving end of this, you know they’re only saying this to be nice. Which kind of makes it worse. Don’t you think?

12. “I don’t care what others think of me.”

If you believe that, good on you! But if you keep checking social media to see how many likes you’ve gotten on your last post, then maybe you’re not being completely honest with yourself.

13. “It’s not you, it’s me.”

We may think this is the best way to let someone down, but we all know the truth. You didn’t want to say you’re not into them.

14. “I’ll just take a small bite.”

When someone says this, don’t let them anywhere near your food. If you do, say goodbye to the last slice of grandma’s cherry cobbler. 

15. “I’m fine.”

We’ve all said it. We’ve all heard it at some point in our lives. And most likely, no one meant it. But it’s the easiest lie to tell. Isn’t it?
