All these lies around us

Ok here we go, we all lie. Can I get somebody who hasn't lied in their life time, I doubt that, people lie all the time very often to save their own skins, there are those who lie looking out for their friends and family, to gain respect or those who just lie to be plain deceitful, if you are not lying anymore good for you but chances are you have lied before.
How often does the average person tell a lie? 280 times a day... For compulsive liars that amounts to lying all the time because telling lies is a default to them, is this acceptable? Sometimes we tell falsehood for the better good such as protecting others feelings, now does that do more harm than good, I suppose for all the right reasons to a certain extent some things are better off expressed in half truths.
People lie, ok we acknowledge that, it often causes more harm than it does any good, nobody likes being lied to and some of us are actually able to tell or at least suspect when we are being lied to, on the contrary there are those who would rather have you lie to them "the creepy ones" for their own sentimental reasons. Let's look at this way, next time you think of uttering that piercing falsehood imagine yourself on the receiving end, now access the damages, is it worth it to lie.
The thing about lies is that you forget them
