Interview Lies(urgent) by Eseaba: 11:07am On Mar 15, 2007
Fellow Nairalanders, I want suggestions on how to lie to my boss so that I can attend a job interview. What kind of lies will be good?
 Health
 Family
 Friends
 Party
 Education
 Others

 Focus on above topics

Tell him you have a party to attend with some big boys, he'll understand cheesy

you can make it a combination of friends and party

Tell him one of you friends just came in from PH and you are organising a big party for him cool

tell him that u have an urgent family matter to sort out, that you will be later to work, if you are go from home. But if its afternoon interveiw, tell him that u are going for ur lunch and that from there u want to go to ur bank.

Mypeace, good contribution from u. Experience is the best teacher. But do you think it is right for a born-Again Xtian eg Deeper Lifer to tell such small lies?
Re: Interview Lies(urgent) by MyPeace(f): 3:32pm On Mar 20, 2007
for a born again person grin shocked

anyway just say u have an urgent issue to attend to and something to sort out after your lunch. I think you never specified anything, so its not a lie or wat do you think?
Re: Interview Lies(urgent) by Eseaba: 11:07am On Mar 27, 2007
Mypeace,
This ur latest contribution made me burst into laughter. I can't stop laughing and my co-workers must join me in this humour. You mean lie is only when you speak out ? What about conscience? cool lipsrsealed
Re: Interview Lies(urgent) by MyPeace(f): 4:06pm On Mar 27, 2007

Re: Interview Lies(urgent) by Eseaba: 2:59pm On Mar 28, 2007
That is telling the truth at all cost. This is challenging as ur Boss doesn't want u to leave.

its either that or u can forget about the interview, ur choice, lil lies lik ethese have to be told every now and then, as long as u dont make it a habit then its okay

hey.
tell the truth always. it wil save your neck. from experience i tried lying, guess what? i got hooked. tell him its an interview. furnish his/her mind on how best you trasure your work & u dont want it to suffer, above all pray to got ask for the holy spirit to prepare his mind before you get to him/her. there is nothing he can not do so dont limit him

na wa oh.
Re: Interview Lies(urgent) by Nobody: 9:24am On Mar 30, 2007
if u r ready for the interview u would know wat to say as at now ur joking

lie (definition) simply another version of the truth being told for various reasons-

i think some where the bible requires u to be smart also- be like the children of isaka that understand the times- u kno wat times u r in, u berstand understand it
wisdom is principle to direct- abraham was a friend of God and yet he explain in certain situations that sarah was his sister. funny enough his son did the same with his wife to the son of whom the father explained previously to

so use ur head

For a Born again Person,
I think you should go to your boss and tell him u have an interview and you wont be at your desk for a stated period of time.
I'm sure he will laugh and wish u the best!!
One man business i think??
Re: Interview Lies(urgent) by sweetstjoy(f): 2:36pm On Mar 30, 2007
integrity is a virtue, ask your self what is the worst thing that can happen? is it worth the lie? let ur integrity come first in all you do, your boss will respect you more if you come out to tell him the truth.
ill tell you my story,
this same senario happened to me and my boss gave me an option either i stay back and continue with the job or i go for the interview and qiut the job, i quit afterall and i got that job so , my dear, dont lie , if you must tell him , tell him the truth, you never can tell he might even assist you
one love
