We’ve all told a little white lie to get away with something – from family emergencies to mysterious doctor appointments, it’s pretty harmless, and very common. But since you’ve gotten away with it, why broadcast the lie? If a boss or vengeful coworker comes across this public tweet, they’d be idiots not to confront you about it, and it may be cause for termination – especially if you’ve done this before. At least check the privacy button if you’re going to boast about your lying prowess – and make sure your colleagues and peers aren’t following you.
