If there is one thing I can't stand it's a liar! Why is it that some people would rather walk ten miles to tell you a lie when they could look you in the face and tell the truth? In my line of work I deal with liars on a daily basis. Some lie in attempt to downplay their trouble. Some to try to get out of it completely. Still others to damn someone else's life. I just sat through two days of a jury trial and for the first time ever I felt the defendant was truly innocent. Accused by a child of inappropriate behaviour and somehow found guilty by a jury of his peers. I guess it bothers me more to think that so many seemingly intelligent people bought into a story so obviously fabricated. Besides hating lies I could never stoop to that, seems it would be too much work to keep up with what I had told to whom! I guess the sign of a truly talented liar is one that can keep their story straight no matter how many times they have to retell or share it. But eventually all liars give themselves away. They build on the original, making it more and more elaborate and eventually they trip themselves up. Or is it just their conscience that makes them finally confess?

Thats why i try not to lie, other than by omission, Stormy, I suck at trying to keep a story straight. And i only lie by omission, if I can keep someone from being hurt, but sometimes even that doesn't help.

Great blog!! Stormy, No lie


Oh shit i suppose i had better give you a kudo but could you exchange it with buster for some free sex even tho he has glass balls now?

I hear ya sugar. I don't understand it either. I learned at a very young age that I wasn't a good liar so I just tell it like it is. Either you like me or you don't but for me it's the truth completely. Besides that my damn memory is to damn bad to have to try and remember a lie I have told. Good blog sugar and very worthy of a kudo.

So true, so true!

My mom told me when I was graduatig high school many moons ago that her secret to knowing when I was not being completely honest was that my neck turned red and always had. She said it even turned red on omissions. Of course, I got the recurrent lecture that to be a good person I had to tell the truth and I was now an adult (didn't we all hear some form of that lecture around the same time?). I decided at that point I better tell the truth. Whenever I have strayed from that commitment, it quickly comes back to nip me in the posterior. So, for all who care, expect the cold hard truth, as it is not me trying to cause pain or discomfort, just trying to maintain integrity and not turn red as a beet.

I believe you know my feelings on this subject..... A friend on this site told me a few months ago that some people would rather climb a tree to tell a lie. I had never heard that expression..But have since learned that some people must just live in the tree cause they climb up in it so often they might as well just stay there.
But eventually all liars give themselves away.

Just give them enough rope. And wait.
Or is it just their conscience that makes them finally confess?
Not usually. At least not until they get caught. And sometimes not even then.

One thing I learned a long time ago, I suck so bad at lying. I am the worst freaking liar on the planet.. when a five year old can look at you and say.. uhh.. yeah.. so not. Sigh.. but I swear I am gonna learn to do it properly one day and take you all for the ride of your lives. Ok .. maybe not. I'm with Y.. can't remember my own damned address half the time, how am I gonna formulate a good lie?

Ah, Slo..............did you miss this


I just sat through two days of a jury trial and for the first time ever I felt the defendant was truly innocent.

Just so you know if a juror thinks he is innocentand others think hes guilty, chances are its going to be a hung jury................i mean just for future reference is all I'm sayin

I cant stand Liers. I would rather live with any insult, have someone steal from me in front of my own eyes, deal with brutal honesty, than to be lied to. Honestly When somone lies to you it hurts so much more than the truth. I quickly lose respect for people who lie and stab others in the back.

Well hun, i hate to burst ur bubble but it's not about lying much anymore. In our justice system it's about how much money you have as a defendent, what kind of lawyer can u buy and just how good is the prosecutor. It's all about the lawyers, but it is the best game in town for the time being!

I had a colleague back in my show biz days whose son was a loser and jerk from the day he was born. My colleague and his ex had been divorced since the boy was young. My colleage and his ex took turns on custody from junior high on as neither one could get the kid to get his act together.

His ex remarried and the kid was causing problems in her marriage as he was malicious. He dropped out of school, couldn't/wouldn't keep a job and was content to rip off other peoples' liquor and weed. My colleague reluctantly let the kid, at the age of 17 live with him, taking the boy off of the street as all other friends and relatives were through with him.

It wasn't long before the kid was caught stealing money out of his dad's wallet one night and my colleague had noticed money missing but now finally had proof. So he threw the little asshole out of the house.

Forty eight hours later, at work, the police came and arrested him for attempted murder. His son alledged that his dad attempted to kill him by strangulation and the boy had choked himself and beat himself up to brovide the bruises and marks for the allegation.
The only thing that saved his ass was that his ex heard about it and intervened beacause the little prick had pulled the same stunt on his step father in another city.

Slo, I "observe" all the Circuit Criminal trials held in my county. That's what I do!! I work for the state judicial system! So no, I'm never "on" the jury!
Which is why princealucard, you are preaching to the choir, there is just not a whole alot about any criminal legal system that you can tell me that I don't already know!
But so many of you have missed out on the whole point of my blog! It's not just about liars in court and how much they mess up their own lives or the lives of others. But how our society as a whole has come to accept lies and liars as the norm. I'm not sure if there are more liars out there these days or it just seems that way because of all the liars we come into contact with online? I simply find it too much work to keep up with all the lies told and who they were told to. Seems much easier to me to just tell the truth? After all isn't it supposed to set you free?

I have a friend kind of like that. He has to invent a story for no reason.
Once we were at a 24 hour guarded lot and he was putting gas into his vehicle from a can. Naturally the guard comes by to make sure everything is ok. Now he owned the vehicle, was allowed to gas it up and take it at his pleasure but he tells the guard some nonsense about visiting a friend and all kinds of other crap for no reason and it sounded like he was making the whole thing up as he went which he was. So the guard checks our IDs and keeps a real close watch on us as we had to come and go several times. So finally we take out the vehicle and after we were done doing what we did my friend says we have to wait for another hour or so before we go back because where he told the guard we were going would take that long to get to and back.
What a waste of time.
But i guess it was good practice, he's a contractor now.

Couldn't have anything to do with the fact that our "leaders" are the most dishonest collection of pricks on the planet and by virtue of that makes it acceptable for the rest of us to accept lies and liars as the norm.

Ok, thanks. I was being nosy. IF you felt he was innocent, and IF he was still found guilty, they you either were not on the jury, or changed your vote. I was guessing not on the jury.... which led to wondering why you were there.....if it was a friend of yours.... or idle curiousity....... Didn't occur to me it could be for work. Like a reporter...... or what you do.

My youngest son was quite a liar when he was in that 4 - 6 age range..... Finally I had to tell him that whatever he decided to do in life, one thing that would follow him around would be his reputation & his name. How did he want to be known? At that age, I wasn't sure how much of an impact it would make & I thought of a better analogy. I told him some day something might happen at school. He might get blamed for it..... and yet be totally innocent. I told him he would be asking me to believe him and stand up for him, and I told him I would have to tell him I was sorry, but since he had established a pattern of lieing about little things, how could I believe him now? THAT one got through to him and he changed his ways.

But, you're right..... it seems that the norm this day and age is to Lie, Deny, & Cry


Lie until you are caught, deny until they prove it, then cry for forgivness (& settle for the best deal you can get)

Hey, I think I should copywrite that ! ! !

My feelings are IF they are the least bit sorry and wanted to be forgiven, they would have just come clean and said "Hey, I messed up big time. I'm sorry.Can you forgive me? " And here's a strange concept...Actually mean it.
But you're right, they deny guilt until they have nowhere else to turn and then will still try to come off as the victim some how so others will pity them. To some, any attention is better than no attention.
The sad part is that, although innocent people may get hurt in the process, they don't usually set out to cause harm to anyone. They just have a need to feel loved, or important. They want to belong and this is the only way they know how. And as with any addiction, they aren't going to stop until they find their bottom and actually want help getting better.

No. The truely talented liar is the one who gets caught telling the truth.

Seriously. A talented liar intertwines the truth in with their lies. And thus when someone suspects they're on on the up-and-up, and tries to call them on something, it is best to get called on something they told the truth about. It discredits the accuser, and makes them to look even more truthful.

During my many years of incarceration,I met many people, and to a man they all professed thier innocence,and had very elaborate stories to tell about how they ended up in prison. Occcasionally I would meet someone who was truly innocent,and that was the person that I would try to help. That was what sparked my interest in the law,and why I have chosen to change my life. btw,I was guilty of everything that I was convicted of,and I never told it any other way.
