It was again another lazy workday, since I have basically finished all my deliverables and I was just listening to some random calls…
<*>: D, you there?
<@>: Hey wassup?! Its been a long time! How are you?
<*>: You know, still the same
<@>: we haven’t bonded since last month! Hehehe
<*>: Check! so... Have you heard!
<@>: Heard about what?
<*>: Remember Z!
<@>: yeah, I remembered him! What did he do?
<@>: (ding!) Still there?
<*>: We met each other the other day at the mall, He told me that is acting head nurse on one of the private hospitals here in the city.
<@>: Wow amazing! He is so lucky!
……. After a couple of hours, I was also chatting with someone who works on that hospital and I suddenly remembered my conversation with N and told him the great news!
<@> hey did you know that Z is already an acting head of something in a hospital! Isn’t that great?
<$> really?! I mean he is a senior D, but not the head. Although he acts like the head but he is not a head nurse.
I was speechless of a moment, it got me thinking. Why do people go to great lengths to lie?
What do they get by exaggerating there position or even their Job description!
On the top of my head!
It could be PURE EGO! So that people will view their life as VERY Interesting! And the other is just a compulsion. I didn’t stop there; I went around and ask
The most common answer that I got centered on being selfish and Ego boost!
I am not going to be a hypocrite and tell that I have never lied or told half truth of a story.
Sometimes it’s deem necessary, to protect someone or to spare someone from pain. I consider that as a noble act and deserve’ my Friendship medal. if the reason is neither of what was stated above , then you are an ATTENTION Wh*$e (Me, me focus on me).
Just my opinion
