do you ever tell a "white lie" about.....

Posted by   + Show Post
how much money you have in your purse/bank/any where? (to you lover/family members/kids/friends?) me, yes but about maybe $5 "less" or say im "broke", (so people wont "bug me" about "borrowing money" or "lending" them some money "until 'blank' date".) >.> ...... I've dealt with TOO MANY "user's" & "lazy people". (aka, people WHO WONT EVER GET A DARN JOB!)

Used to I would tell people we were broke. My SIL or MIL was constantly wanting to borrow money. Every now and then one of my nieces will call and ask if I have anything for them to do for money, I tried that once... Never again lol. Usually when I pay someone to do something for me such as clean or babysit, I pay very well. My DH has gotten on to me for it lol. I had my nieces come over. I told 1 to do the dishes, 1 to clean the living room, and 1 to clean my oldest DD's room. This was when she was still too young to really clean her own room. The one that washed the dishes waited till all the suds were gone and the water was cold. I had to rewash everything. The one that cleaned the living room, didn't really do anything, I had to go through and redo it. The one that cleaned my oldest DD's room shoved stuff wherever it would fit no matter what it was. She still does that actually lol. I had to redo my DD's room. They were never really properly taught how to clean. I have found dirty clothes and trash in my DD's toybox before..

Nobody really asks me about money. I guess it would depend on who is asking. I wouldn't tell anyone what I have. I'd just tell them I don't have it to lend, which I don't, what's in savings doesn't count and I only keep in checking what we need for bills, food and gas, so I have no money to lend.

I agree here


Quoting rebeccasmly:

No. It's no one's business but DH's what's in my purse or our bank account.

I sure do because I very rarely have any money in my wallet and when I do I never tell anyone how much I have.  LOL
