In this article, we will talk about some huge lies that we should not believe. These lies are like stories that people tell but are not true. We need to say “B.S.” to these lies, which means we need to tell the truth and not believe the false things people say. Knowing the truth is important because believing lies can confuse us or do things that aren’t good for us.
So, let’s learn about these 9 big lies and how to spot them when we hear them.
“Your Call Is Important To Us”
I’m sure we’ve all gotten this line when we call in for customer service. But sometimes, the customer service agent doesn’t exactly personify someone who cares about your call.
You Won’t Always Have A Calculator
I remember getting this line a lot in math class. And guess what? It’s completely wrong. Of course, it’s always good to know what’s going on behind the math formula, but 99% of adults living in the first world have access to calculators 24/7.
We Are A Family
Employers are never your family, regardless of how much they want you to believe differently. When push comes to shove, the employer will always do whatever is best for them.
And you should, too.
Politicians promise the world but only deliver what their lobbyists want, right? It’s been that way for centuries and probably won’t ever change.
Looks Don’t Matter
The truth is looks DO matter. Being fit and healthy gives you a major competitive advantage in today’s society, whether we like to admit it or not.
No Strings Attached
There are always strings, aren’t there?
Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness
The fact is money does buy happiness. If you don’t believe me, try being poor. Now, this doesn’t mean that all rich people are happy. In fact, money creates as many problems as it solves. But to say that money doesn’t buy happiness is completely wrong.
Thanks. We’ll Be In Touch
They won’t be in touch if you get this at the end of a job interview. Instead, it’s nice to say, “Thanks for coming in, but you clearly didn’t get the job.”
While some expiration dates are valid, others are meant to get you to buy more of the product under the assumption that it went bad. That’s not necessarily the case.
