How To Make Up Believable Excuses

It happens even to the best of us to be in a situation where we have to make up an excuse in order to escape from a uncomfortable situation. Sometimes we need them to not make a situation worst than it already is, for example, when your boss asks you why you are late for work  you start mumbling "The Alarm-clock didn't ring...and there was a lot of traffic... and there were work in progress on the road..." To avoid all this awkwardness you have to follow one simple golden rule and that is to make up one simple, clear, quick lie; something you wont forget. Usually we tend to be very specific when we lie because in our head we think that the more excuses we find the more believable we are when what works is the exact opposite.

It's good to add some details but, too much of them will make you look suspicious to the eyes of the person being lied. My father used to tell me "Who lies has a short memory" with that in mind try to keep you lies simple and concise so that you can remember them in case you need to. If your excuses are intricate like a spiderweb when you will have to remember your lie you will probably tell a different version loosing your alibi (and sometimes your job too). I wanna make clear that I don't advocate lying nor I'm inviting you to do so. 99% of the time lying wont bring anything good but if your boss is really annoying and your wife cooks horribly, a little lie wont hurt nobody ("No honey, the food is great, I just have a toothache!")

I'm half Irish, and there's a saying that goes-"the Irish have such respect for the truth that they only use it when absolutely necessary"

White lies are the only acceptable lies, I believe.

I agree with Deso, only trivial lies are acceptable in my opinion. Sometimes you just have to make up something to keep a situation going smoothly. The Pinocchio picture is a nice touch by the way.

The best lies are the ones where you respond instantly. If you give them a moment to let them know your thinking its impossible for them to believe you.
