Here are the 5 types of lies you are allowed to tell at work

Platitudes get on my nerves. They are cheap and thoughtless answers to complicated problems.

“Honesty is the best policy” is a platitude that especially irks me and anybody else who stops to think about it for two seconds.

Honesty is a great policy in many situations, but it isn’t always the best policy.

Sometimes you have to tell a white lie to spare someone’s feelings. If your friend sends you a picture of herself after her new haircut and says “Do you like my haircut?” you’re not going write back to say “Heck, no!”

You’re going to write “Who cares about me — do YOU like it?” or just “Yes!,” instead.

That’s only polite. The truth is important, but we have to be mindful of people’s feelings, also. If we are honest, there are times when we ask other people’s opinions and we don’t really want to hear the truth from them, either.

If we pay attention, we can easily tell the difference between truth-telling situations and other interactions where the best choice is to be kind.

Here are five white lies you are allowed to tell at work.

You will not get hit with a thunderbolt or hurt anybody’s feelings when you tell these white lies instead of the cold, hard truth.

1. When someone asks you to honestly critique their presentation at a meeting or another activity that was new for them, tell them “I’m proud of you. You really stepped out there!” even if they did a horrendous job. Don’t say “It was painful to watch your presentation” even if it’s true!

2. When your manager is frustrated and invites you to throw a co-worker under the bus, don’t do it — even if your co-worker is guilty. If Evan was supposed to double-check the report before it went to your VP and Evan forgot to do it and the VP got a report with errors in it, don’t say “Evan messed up!” When your boss asks you “Wasn’t Evan supposed to check the report?” you can say “I don’t remember, but it’s okay — I’ll check in with Evan and it won’t happen again.”

3. When you helped your co-worker with their project to such an extreme degree that you basically did the project for them, give them the credit anyway. If your boss asks you “Did you do Sarah’s project for her? It has your fingerprints all over it” you can say “She’s a fast learner — she’ll do it alone next time!”

4. When your co-worker, customer or vendor asks you for your input on a memo, a brochure or anything else they hand you or send you to look at, and the material you’re asked to evaluate is horrendous, don’t say so. Few people if any can handle the feedback “This is wretched — you need to start over.” The same person who is standing next to you waiting anxiously for your feedback is the person who thought this brochure or this memo was the bee’s knees when they designed or approved it. Give them one tiny piece of feedback like “You might try getting more contrast between the background the typeface next time” and let it go.

“Couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship” – Survey

A new survey has revealed that couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship.

The study from Cotton USA asked couples what they slept in at bedtime and then asked them to rate how happy they were in their relationship.

According to the results, 57 percent of those who slept in the nude said they felt happy, compared to 48 percent of pyjamas wearers, 43 percent of nightie wearers and a mere 38 percent of people who wore pants, bum shorts, etc.

Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe of Cotton USA said that one of the leading factors for this was that the nakedness encouraged intimacy and openness, thanks to the skin-on-skin contact and the feeling of soft bedding.

Guys! Ths is what happens to the pen*s as you get older, according to science

Our bodies change with age, but how about the most private parts? What happens to Pen.!s when it ages? Let’s get some clear answers.

So, guys, what can you expect to happen to your Pen.!s when you grow older? These clues will prepare you for the inevitable changes.

How Pen.!s changes with age?

Length

When most men are born, their Pen.!ses reach only 4 cm in length! The average size ranges between 16 and 23 cm. Does it decrease in size, when you grow old? Not exactly, but things change. For instance, if you gain much weight, your Pen.!s looks shorter. The fat is located in the lower part of your belly and covers up part of the Pen.!s shaft. However, in your 60s or 70s the Pen.!s can actually a bit shrink in size by some 2-3 cm.

Testicle size

After 40 they decrease by 1 third of their size. Healthy younger men have them around 3 cm in size, while the older guys may have only 2 cm size balls.

Working condition

The performance changes, too. When you turn 40, your S3@.x:’ual activity and the amount of male hormones in the body decreases. In the youth a healthy man may have S3@.x:’ several times a day, in the later age erectile dysfunction may change things for worse. The muscles weaken and the vessels get clogged. It also contributes to weaker erection. So, having S3@.x:’ few times a week is great, when you age.

Enjoyment

It greatly depends on the sensitivity of your male organ. Unfortunately with age it decreases a bit, but it’s good for those guys, who come too fast. Now they have more chances to gain control and boost the duration of their performance in bed.

Looks

You start losing your head hair with the age, but that’s not it. Men also lose their pubic hair and their Pen.!ses change the color a bit.

Time spares no one, so enjoy your S3@.x:’ life in the  young age, but do not worry, over 80 percent of men maintain their male organs in great working condition even being seniors.

Guys beware! It is dangerous to have s*x in these 4 situations

Is S3@.x:’ always good? There are times when you should stay away from it, and every man should know the reasons not to get busy! This list may surprise you.

List of 4 reasons why not to have S3@.x:’:

Besides the obvious thing – not being the husband of the lady you plan to enjoy, there are other reasons to keep away from intimacy. Here they are.

1. At your bachelor’s party

party

You are a groom and your friends bring in some girls to have fun at your last bachelor’s night out. It’s the worst possible idea to get busy with a stripper or some strange girl. You have picked that woman to be your wife for a reason. Keep it in mind, when other ladies offer fun to you. You do not want to start your married life with cheating. What you sow, you will reap!

2. Alcohol

alcohol

Either you or she or both of you are drunk. How much is too much? 3 to 5 drinks can make you less wise in your decisions and less cautious. Consuming alcohol, you become more open for risky things, such as unprotected S3@.x:’. And you put yourself and the other person in danger of getting SDTs (HIV and other love bugs) or impregnating the woman.

Such a situation is highly undesirable. So, if you drink too much, make a rule to abstain from S3@.x:’ with a new girlfriend.

3. At her parents’ house

That’s not the best location for the love games. They may return home unexpectedly. Or if they are home, they may enter her room any time and catch you at it. It’s a very embarrassing situation.

4. When you wish to marry her

She is a V!rg!n, and you have made up your mind to marry her. But you want her so and think: what if we do it now? Why wait for the wedding night? Stop! You are going to ruin it all. Waiting does not kill anyone. Just set the date and you won’t regret it. As waiting double the pleasure on the first night!

These reasons should stop you and make you think. S3@.x:’ is not always a good idea, and it can be dangerous and has the power to ruin your life when done at the wrong time and with the wrong person.
