Honesty is the Best Policy
People don’t always want to hear the truth; sometimes, when the truth might be painful, they rather be lied to and live an illusion. I get that. Sometimes, it’s better to live your life not knowing something. However, this guy decided to go for the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and it worked out quite well.
At the end of the night, his date thanked him for the dinner and movie, and he said, “yeah, I didn’t have anything better to do.” Some people won’t care for this response – you don’t want to be just a way to kill someone’s boredom! This girl, on the other hand, thought this response was a hoot. Three years later, she’s married to the guy!
