The lies of Modern World

One study found that people tell two to three lies every 10 minutes, and even conservative estimates indicate that we lie at least once a day. According to another study conducted by the University of Massachusetts, 60% of adults can’t have a ten minute conversation without lying at least once. 

We all are liars!!!

The lies that do not hurt anyone and are for a good reason we call them as white lies. Everyone tells a lie, sometimes they help to escape from a uncomfortable situation or hold on to someone, buy you time, save relationships or comfort someone and I guess this is a big list and it goes on. Here are some lies of modern world  which we here every day:
  • I am fine
  • I will be there in five minutes
  • I would have reached on time, but hell lot of traffic
  • I am busy, call you back
  • Your table will be ready in 5 minutes.
  • Don’t worry; medicine has improved a lot these days
  • I am on diet
  • From tomorrow i will exercise for sure
  • This is my last cigarette 
  • I will quit drinking
  • I am not drunk
  • Nothing is wrong.
  • you are the best thing ever happened to  me
  • Definitely I will attend (invitation for wedding/any social gathering)
  • You are not fat
  • He/she is just a friend
  • I will finish the work ASAP
  • Aww wow! That’s a nice gift and thank you 
  • We will try our best.
  • It’s ok!
  • It happens for a reason
  • I make sure, this will never happen again.

This is all I remember as of now.. Admit it that  you've lied, and contribute to this list...


  1. haha.. good to know that these are being categorized as 'white lies..'

  2. Safed Jooth jise kiska nuksan/hani nahi hoti :)

    We, humans cant handle the truth.

    Have you watched the movie The Invention of Lying, do watch it and the truth will unfold.....

    1. that was the modern world definition of white lies. for sure i will watch that movie :)

  3. Are lying makes us human. The lies u mentioned are all normal. I too lie :D
    Especially the 'I WILL EXERCISE FROM TOMORROW' lie

    1. May be we cannot judge being human or not.. but these are general lies people say.. I will be there in five minutes is what i lie :P

  4. you listed so many lies... you must be a great lier..

    1. Oh Oh!! that was a big statement.. make a note that these lies I listen very often and listening does make me a liar ..

  5. After reading the list, I feel it's more to cover a facade. 'I am fine' is a prominent lie. And yes, I do lie. I can't say harsh things to others, so I sugar coat my words, which eventually becomes a lie.


I love your comments, so please go ahead they make me Happy!!!
