have u ever had a problem bcoz u lie rather confidently. not lie... i wouldn't call it that. but u claim to know something that in reality u haven't the faintest idea about. not to brag or show off. but just?
i do. at times. under the following circumstances mostly.
:: am too bored to continue the conversation.
:: i'm hungry. *happens a lot more frequently than u'd think!*
:: i want to end the conversation coz i have something really kewl to discuss *happens ONLY with V.*
:: the topic of discussion doesn't really affect my life. or V's.
of course, this habit was formed as an occupational hazard. where the boss would commit something to MY client and i had no idea about it. but of course, when the client called, i had to sound like i knew. so i did. and to my credit, never has the client seen through this trait of mine. so yes, i'm good at it.
but then, this got translated into personal life as well. like if V'd ask me.. was it the next left or right? i'd confidently say left. when i had no idea where we were!
but by now... V's got used to this habit. and sometimes, he can actually tell when i'm not sure. and when he can't tell, he keeps questioning me to make sure i really DO know what i'm saying i know.
for instance. today. i asked him to pick me a book from the library. *yes yes.. i was too lazy to go out in the frikkin TX heat!*
so this is what ensued on mail.
me: need u to pick this book for me. details attached. now, the details included call no *reqd to identify book*, name & author.
vin: which library?
vin: u sure?
vin: did u actually check?
of course i checked!!! if i know the call number, of course i've seen the library name! but no, man HAS to ask me! and this is not the only instance.
nobody believes me anymore. much like the little boy who cried wolf.
