#Careergirlconfession: 8 Lies We All Tell Our Parents

large (2)

Let’s be honest, we may have told our parents some tiny white lies over the years – but it’s sometimes better they don’t know anything at all! Have a look at our list below to admit which ones you’ve been guilty of!

“I’ve been up for ages”

Truth: I’ve actually been up for 15 minutes, but have a surprisingly quick morning routine.

“I didn’t drink much last night”

Truth: I finished off a bottle of wine and did a round of tequila shots, which technically, isn’t a lot…

“I’ve finished all my work”

Truth: I’m secretly crying inside because I have so much work to do but three episodes of Gossip Girl left to watch.

“No he’s not my boyfriend”

Truth: I can’t really disclose that type of ‘friend’ with my parents, can I?

“You didn’t send me a request”

Truth: I’m ignoring your request so you don’t have to see my highly embarrassing drunk photos.

“We keep our flat tidy”

Truth: It’s a pig sty. No one is tidy. I’m losing my mind with the amount of dishes in the sink. Why did I ever decide to share a flat?

“Sorry I didn’t hear my phone”

Truth: I’m ignoring you because I’m watching Netflix.

“I go to bed at a reasonable hour”

Truth: I got into bed at 2am last night. I’m a walking zombie.
