I don’t “hate” many things, but I can not STAND liars.
I’ve been bitten by enough serial liars in my life to know that liars are septic and that my girlies will:
1. Know that it is bad to lie (eventually!…like by the time they’re 12?)
2. Know that liars ALWAYS get caught out (eventually!) 😉
But riddle me this Bitcheepooooos.
How and when are we supposed to teach them that lying is wrong, when we so regularly ask it of them?
Me: “Oh God there’s no toilet roll. God these toilets are pretty rotten. They could do with a rub.” (Pulls tissues from bag)
Me: “We’ll tell the nice man outside that there’s no toilet paper in these toilets.”
“Ok. Pull up your shorts now and we’ll wash our hands.”
Her: ” Is it time for icecream yet?”
Step outside to find Daddy in carpark. Meet nice steward/staff member.
Me: “Hi. There’s no toilet roll in any of the ladies toilets…”
Her: “Them toilets are JUST ROTTEN!”
Me: (squeezing her hand and hissing Sssssssh!)
Him: (not hearing her) “No bother love. I’ll get that sorted…”
Her: (louder) Scuse me Muster. Them toilets needs a good wub. They’re honkin…”
Him? No idea. I actually dragged her sanctimonious little bum across the carpark as quickly as I could go, calling “Thanks a million” cheerily over my shoulder.
And of course, I scolded her for speaking to the man and started on my “You don’t speak to adults like that” tirade.
And she of course, looked up at me with her big blue innocent eyes and said “But sure I was telling the truf Mammy. Look my tongue isn’t black or nuffin?” 😑😑
So yes, riddle me this…
How the hell do we expect them to learn how to tell the truth, but only when it doesn’t involve being rude?
It’s not easy is it?
But I’m sure that by the time she is old enough to “know better”, she’ll be able to tell the difference in the little white lies which have only positive effects on people, and the big fat septic ones.
And the toilets WERE pretty rotten in fairness! 😭😭
How was your Monday? 😘😘😘
