“Traffic was terrible.”
Nope, you just left your place really, really, really late.
“Sorry, I just saw your text.”
Everyone has their phone with them at all times, but sometimes you don’t want to get back to a person right away. Or maybe they asked you to make plans, and instead of being honest, you say, “Ugh, so sorry I missed this. I just saw your text.” LIES!
“It’s okay,” “I’m fine,” and “We’re all good.”
We’re going to clump these all together (so this list really has 11 White Lies, you’re welcome!). I don’t know who you’re saying “it’s okay” to, but it’s most definitely not. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG AND YOU KNOW IT!
“I might lose you, I’m on my cell.”
Even though you’re in your pajamas, on the couch, in your apartment (that gets excellent service).
“Sorry, I ate beforehand.”
“I’m on my way.”
Nope. Still getting ready.
“I don’t care what we have for dinner.”
…as long as it’s not Chinese, Mexican, Italian….
“I have friends from out of town visiting.”
How many times have you used this as an excuse to get out of plans? No one is coming to visit you. You’re watching Netflix all weekend.
“Let’s get together soon.”
Never happening. Lie!
