These Are The 10 Most Popular White Lies We All Tell Each Other


Trust literally no one ever because everyone is lying to you at all times.

I don't think society as a whole recognizes how we are all constantly lying to each other. For some reason, we all kind of subconsciously trick ourselves into thinking lying is a unique individual thing each of us independently does.

It's like being into Creedence Clearwater Revival. You may think you're the only one who is into the band, but when is the last time you heard someone say, "Meh, I don't stop what I'm doing and straight-up VIBE when 'Fortunate Son' comes on my Spotify"?

Who runs the world? LIES do, and we now have hard proof of that fact.

The world-renowned anthropological experts at the University of DIRECTV released a study based on 2,000 surveys detailing the white lies we tell each other.

The results aren't super shocking, but that doesn't mean they aren't crazy horrifying.

For starters, nobody is ever "fine" ever.


How did "I'm on birth control" only rank a 4.52 on the severity scale? This lie RUINS lives!


What does it take to get a five!? "I didn't have sex with Monica Lewinsky"?

Also, never trust a co-worker...


Especially in South Dakota...


...and if he or she is not married.


I'm never talking to anybody ever again.
