How is it that some people seem to lie more than they tell the truth? Are some people just not in control of themselves? Or are they really just terrible people? I have heard of compulsive lying. Is this something uncontrollable?

People don't believe me when I say I almost always tell the truth. But if you know me well, you know I am honest and also very careful about how I phrase things. When people ask me questions I don't want to answer I try to avoid answering or answer with something unrelated LOL

Sorry for this mini-rant, I'm just tired of being lied to on a daily basis!

I can't stand that either. I'm sure as a teen I lied, but as an adult I realize that it's far too much work to lie. Just tell the truth and you never have to worry about what you've said.

I hate lying too and very bad at it. I guess some people are compulsive's like a mental state or something.

You know, I think that that it sometimes is a habit. My mother tells lies about the dumbest things. I am not sure why, maybe it is, well there is no excuse. We all get really tired of it. She sometimes lies to my dad about whether or not she is going to play cards with me and her sisters. Not that my dad cares but she will tell us one thing and my dad another. This is an all the time thing and you are right, it is wrong and also disresptful.

I'm not sure. My MIL is a huge liar. At first, I think it was intentional. At this point though, I think half is meant to lie & the other half she just can't control it anymore. My grandma lies a lot as well, very weird.
