Honesty

Why do people make up stories instead of simply telling the truth. Of what possible use is it to lie when the simple truth will suffice. Perhaps to save face? Perhaps to make a situation more comfortable? Perhaps to protect one self from possible retribution from the boss? Perhaps people are just afraid of the reaction of others and produce a simple lie that will make a situation go away. I myself have told simple lies. I learned in the military that sometimes the truth is no better than a lie and in fact can lead to the same or perhaps worse consequences. One thing I try so very hard, is to never lie to a friend. One simple lie can make all trust and respect evaporate so quickly.
