Have you ever been lied to by one of your friends? Sure you have...everyone has. Did you ever catch someone in a lie on social media? You know what I mean....someone lied to you and then you caught them in that lie by seeing a picture posted on social media. That happened to me recently.
I had asked a friend if they wanted to do something and she said no. Giving an excuse involving her kids and work, I took it as "I'm busy." No harm, no foul. The day that she was busy, a picture showed up on Instagram of her kids with a another group of friends.
My first reaction was to be hurt. Did she think I'd be mad if she told me the truth? I know I'm kind of a jealous person...I'm big enough to admit it, but I wouldn't wig out. Why didn't she just tell me she already had plans?
I guess "back in the day" you could easily tell a little white lie about your plans, because unless someone "told on you," who would know? Now-a-days, you really should just be upfront (or leave all cell phones at home) because you never know what will get out there.
If anything, I've learned an important lesson. I will be upfront and just say I have plans. Or at least I'll hold all photos for a few days...whatever.
