Lie to me with sincerity

It’s ok to be a phony as long as it’s authentic. As a society we have come to terms with such a sentiment. Now, we not only think about authenticity, but also falsehoods and lies. In that same vein, we are now asking that if you do lie, that you do so with sincerity. Put some effort into the lie. But not too elaborate. Overly detailed lies always come off as insincere. It’s offensive. Don’t treat a person like a dummy when you’re lying. Another tip. Believe your lie but don’t be too cocky with it.

At the end if it all, I’m not calling you a liar. Just don’t lie to me.

  1. I’d rather have a sincere, “I don’t know” or “I don’t think I can help you” from a doctor, than promises to try something given with full authority – and then the attempt is a complete and utter failure after 30 seconds. Because that 30 seconds will cost ME, the patient, 3-4 days of my life.

    Yes, we had to try. But if it was that unsuccessful, shouldn’t the doctor have known?
