15 Lies That Everybody Has Told Before.

We've all told a white lie from time to time, and honestly, we've done so with a clean conscious...for the most part. But there are a few lies that we're all guilty of telling more than we'd like to admit. Keep reading to discover the top 15 most commonly told lies, and maybe you'll realize that you should be doing a bit more truth-telling in your daily life.

"That Sounds Familiar"

For some reason, humans have a difficult time admitting that they don't know someone, or they haven't of that fresh new band, and that's why we use this phrase so often. But it does help us to feel connected to the person we're talking to, so maybe it's a good thing to use this lie? Who knows?

"This Is The Best Gift Ever"

It's important to be polite any time someone gets you a gift, but sometimes it can be hard to hide your true feelings. And that is when this lie comes into play. Instead of admitting you don't like something, say you like it and regift it. Problem solved!

"I'll Just Have One"

It's easy to tell ourselves that we'll "just have one" French fry or one drink, but we all know how easy it is to have way more than one. If telling yourself that you're only having one makes you feel better about yourself, then you just keep doing it.

"This Is Delicious"

It's always important to be polite when you eat someone else's cooking, which is why this lie is so common. You're not really going to tell someone that their food tastes like garbage, so you can just stick to telling this small white lie.
