157. When someone lies to you and you know they’re lying
Special note for bloggers at the foot of this post.
Not long ago, I asked a friend if she had gotten my email because I hadn’t heard back… to which she replied that she didn’t have email on her phone.
And then I reminded her that she was the one who told me to get email notifications on my phone because they were very useful. She had also read part of an email that she got to me, out loud, while she was next to me in the car.
“But, I know you have email on your phone. What’s going on?”
“Uh. Um, not really.”
“You don’t really have email on your phone?”
She didn’t admit it that she was lying to me, but I didn’t want to push it. How do you feel when someone lies to you?
An old roommate used to disconnect the internet router because the lights bothered him at night, and one time over the phone I asked him to turn it back on, and he said it was already on.. and I even heard him stand up flick a switch, and just then the internet started working again (I knew when it came back on because I kept refreshing my StumbleUpon page).
I said “Oh, I guess it was just my laptop”
What are you supposed to do? Play along? I guess that’s an option. I want to know what you do. Hit me up on Twitter, or add a comment below!
Attention fellow bloggers! I need some help. I’m launching a new blog/project next week and would like to know if any of you are interested in letting me be YOUR GUEST in a blog post 🙂 Your free new content can be in the form of a short blog post from me on any topic, or an interview (ask me anything!) to post on your blog, even if your readership consists of just your mom and that stalker from back in high school. I just discovered guest blogging, and it’s super easy, even if you’ve never done it before. Awesome way to network. Contact me for details on Twitter, or on my email edwincov at gmail (dot) com. I have room for about 5 different blogs, so let me know if you’re interested!
