It can be pretty tempting to jump to lying after, for example, texting your crush goes horribly wrong. "Omg, my friend stole my phone and sent you that message as a joke, that totally wasn't me. I would never say that, lol."

But there's only so much bending a narrative can take. Overdo it, and you're exposed. Plus, people aren't as gullible as we might think.

And I have the perfect subreddit to back up these claims. It's called r/OopsDidntMeanTo and the pictures its members share expose all kinds of "accidents."

From bringing a Labrador to a meeting with a dog-phobic person to buying a Range Rover, here are some of the most ridiculous ones. If these situations won't prove to you that it's better to just accept your embarrassment than run away from it, nothing will.

Haha I have a huge dog @145 lbs. I forget people think labs are big. I laughed bc my first thought was... Labs are big and scary?? I mean I don't like Putin but.... This was kind of a boss move. "Friendly unobtrusive breed"... Knows her fears.... Moves on it without causing international scandal. He still sucks though in general, no mistake.

People are attacked all the time by dogs, some even killed.

Bella DePaulo, Ph.D., a psychologist at the University of Virginia, said that lying is simply a condition of life. In her research she found that both men and women lie in approximately a fifth of their social exchanges lasting 10 or more minutes. And over the course of a week, we deceive about 30 percent of people we have one on one interactions with.

There are, however, some differences between the sexes. Women are more likely to tell altruistic lies to avoid hurting other people’s feelings, and men are more likely to lie about themselves. De Paulo discovered that men lie more often to impress. Consider this: a typical conversation between two guys contains about eight times as many self-oriented lies as it does lies about others.

Of course, not all lies are harmful. In fact, sometimes lying is the best approach for protecting privacy and ourselves and others from malice. Some deception, such as boasting and lies in the name of tact and politeness, for example, can also be classified as less than serious.

But bald-faced lies (whether they involve leaving out the truth or putting in something false), are harmful, as they corrode trust and intimacy—the glue of society. No wonder these people got shamed for it!
