We're all guilty of lying from time to time for our own personal gain. And of course, no one's here to judge you, after all, it's a dog eat dog world so everyone deserves to do a little something to help themselves. But when you think about it, how do you separate an innocent white lie and legit nasty lie? Well, this series of tweets about people lying for personal gain will show you how far people will go in order to get what they want, and honestly, you can't really blame them, some even managed to get married to the love of their life just by fudging the truth a bit.

Everyone has to start somewhere. You cannot enter a job, where they want three years of experience, without ever being able to get that experience. Sometimes you have to fake. At least you read some books and knew what you were doing.

Well, in a way I can understand it. It is not the nicest thing to do, but living on the streets, especially as a kid, must be very hard. In the end, it was "only" 10 bucks on each of them. They might have survived it.

My dad used to do this on nature walks. Found out years later that the 'lesser spotted throat warbler' was a thrush.

That reminds me of this 6 year old kid in our neighborhood. He saw a banana and said he didn't know what it was, so we let him eat one. It turned out he didn't know what any fruit was so we were always giving him some. We thought we were doing him a huge favor. Got talking to his mom one day who laughed and said he would say anything to get food and he was familiar with all kinds of fruit! We were so taken for a ride!

I love doing this with someone who is a sports fan. To the football nut, " O.k, so that's the where they throw the ball in the net thingy, right?" OMG, the looks I get. Longest "mansplaining" was about 10 minutes before he caught on.

It's not "mansplaining" when you beg for it.

Just breakin' his balls. No way would anyone believe you didn't know what a donut was. Even if he watched you walk out of a spaceship.

Awesome! When my hubby is getting on my nerves, I intentially mispronounce words that I know will irritate him. He's been falling for this for almost 16 years now.

When I was going up, fruit was expensive in my area. People used to give oranges and pears for Christmas.

How could you invent Jewish holidays? I mean, there's a calendar. You had a Jewish professor? College staff are really that stupid?
