Do you consider lying bad?

Post by Andvari300 » Thu Jul 11, 2019 4:23 pm

Do you believe lying is wrong or ok in some situations? I read an issue about a person complaining about having to pay extra in their rent because they have a cat. I mentioned that I’ve had two in door cats for years (now down to one) and I said don’t tell them and problem solved. Would you do the same?

Its your first kiss, your lost virginity, its the love an abusive step father has for his son he never wanted because he really just wanted to get in the mom's pants but the kid was part of the packaged deal.

Mmm, that's sort of a very specific question. I would always plan on having a cat no matter where I lived, so I wouldn't even really consider somewhere that didn't allow cats or where they charged a lot for having cats. And the fact that it's probably written into the lease contract means that if you did lie about it the landlord would have a really easy time suing for whatever additional fee they had stated and "damages" probably too. That could stack up to a really bothersome bill if you had gotten away with it for a while.

Sorry it's only one kitty now. :(

Well, lying is inherently bad. However, i still consider it is okay to lie in certain cases. For example, if lying would help someone avoid dangerous situation. But lying for personal gain, I still think it's not okay eventhough i still do it sometimes. Just know that the risk of people finding out your lies should never greater than the gain you got for lying in the first place.

It's a very situational question, I think. For your example in particular, I don't think lying would be bad, but it could come back around to bite the cat owner in the ass.
