As long as he's not ruining people's lives, or causing serious financial or mental damage to anyone, lies are OK and a part of human lives ;) SUch things aren't lies, but are called an optimization of the truth.

promises are good, but one has to be practical. If I was his mom, I would make fun of him pretty hard.

I don't know how old your friend is, but if he applies a Star Wars "Light Side Vs. Dark Side" outlook to "lies" and "truths" he will have a VERY rough going in the professional world.

Life, after all, is not black & white and not absolute. And is merely different shades of gray. I am surprised his mother accepted such a thing. I would have paddle spanked him for being so naive :)

He should watch his limits, and not hurt others w/ his lies.

But say....for example's sake- I go w/ on a field trip to Jaisalmer Rajastan. And let's just say- I decide to spend the time, being under the "special lassi shoppe" ...more
