In the recent UPDATED edition of the OLDEST LIES, I predicted I would have SIXTY by the end of the year.
Since November of last year, a friend had been strung along with illusory suggestions of a job possibility which was accompanied by numerous excuses from the person misleading him. He was told yesterday:
THERE'S NO MONEY IN THE BUDGET.
That has the dubious honor of being the Number 59 OLDEST LIE!
Interestingly, during the conversation in which the friend shared Number 59, he unwittingly provided Number 60:
YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND: IT'S THE WAY IT'S DONE IN THIS INDUSTRY!
With this rate, I predict I'll have 100 by the end of the year!
