A little truth or lie

I'm in a bit of a creative slump. This might be a reflection of the season like the slate gray sky is reflected in the puddles. A whole lot of blah. Plus it's Monday, the most blah inducing day of the week. So why not pull an old game out of the hat and play truth or lie. You know how it goes. There is one falsehood in the list below. Can you spot it? Today's category: Work history

1. I have been sexually harassed by a male boss.

2. I successfully fasted for three days while working in an ice cream shop.

3. I have had sex at work.

4. I have been fired for embezzlement.

5. I have quit my job while throwing my uniform in the boss's face.

Tomorrow, I'll reveal the lie.

I'm saying #4 is a lie. I don't believe you would embezzle, nor would you be fired. Unless it was a misunderstanding...

Oh HELL! I hate these because I need to see the face of the person to be able to spot the lie! I'm going with #4.

I recommend everyone pick a different answer if you want to win because I always get these wrong!!!

Ed said...

Harrassed at work, you should live so long. I choose number 3 as the lie. You've only had sex with 2 or 3 different men and I don't tink they worked where you did.

Snooze said...

Hmmmm. I say #1, but then I suck at this game.

Chiming in after weeks of silence! (Love your blog.)

Seems everyone so far is willing to believe #2 and 5; me too. I say #4 is a lie. Can't see you doing this. Or was it your evil twin?

mainja said...

Have you ever worked from home? In that case you could have been working and then taken a break for some afternoon delight...

I'm going with 4, although really, I can think of reasons why this would happen to, involving stupid bosses that mistake things and accuse people of stuff they didn't do...

Paul said...

I just think you've obviously had some drama at work! (Do you count playing with yourself in the men's room as "sex at work?")

David said...

I'll guess #4.

Lemuel said...

I'm going to go with #3. I am guessing that you have had sex with co-workers (I think you revealed that), but not during work hours.

As for #4, there is a difference between doing it and being fired for it (falsely accused). I can conceive of the latter, but not the former.

lattégirl said...

You don't seem the type to embezzle, so I'll go with #4 as the lie.

Laverne said...

I think it's #2... or maybe #5.

gah.

Number 2. I'm going with number 2.

Fatinah said...

I'm going with #4. Why do I hope it's #4?

Jason said...

#2, I'm thinking #4 is a trick option since I've been a waiter too...

Lacey said...

Interesting that so many don't believe that you would be capable of number 4. My initial feeling was that it has to be 4, for that reason, also. Why do we think so highly of you? Since I find number 2. to be the most believable, and given your penchant for all things haveing to do with number TWO (aka: poo), I'm going with number TWO. (But if it turns out to be number four, I still want credit because I don't think you would embezzle, but still...one never knows, does one?

So anyway, yeah, number two. (with four in reserve).

It's probably number five. Would you be that rude? Yes, I guess you would. The question is, would be that nervy? Hmmm.

No, I'm sticking with number TWO.

Ok, look. I have work to do. TWO.

TWO TWO TWO. Number Two.

I really doubt that you've had sex at work though.

TWO.

Cooper said...

#2 ... because I can't imagine anyone successfully fasting for 3 days while working around ice cream. At least I couldn't.

As for #4, I think it could have happened but it was a mistake on your boss' part.

Lacey said...

I totally believe number one. I mean, come on, he's gorgeous.

Lacey said...

Two.
Four.
Five.
Three.
One.

Wait, One and Three...could there be a connection? Oh. My. God. Wait. It's all right there in front of us. He worked at an ice cream shop. He was sexually harassed, gave in, and had sex with the boss. So he vowed never to eat again, but because of the harassment, he took twenty bucks from the til. The boss confronted him, he threw his uniform in the boss's face, and quit. Then he and the boss had sex again, before he stormed out.

The answer is, ALL FIVE are true.

(Do I win a prize for this? Is this like J.M.G.? Cause I still can't believe I didn't win the Supremes Greatest Hits CD, damnit.

#4.

Polt said...

I'm going with #4 being the lie. It seems the obvious one, so it's probably not the lie, but I just can't imagine you embezzling anything.

HUGS>..

Marius said...

Yeah, I'm also going with #4.

Doug said...

While I think Lacey could be on to something, I think #1 is the lie. No idea why, perhaps because it's too specific.

Patricia said...

five. because i think the others are meant to sound untrue. but then, i suck on this side of this game. :)

Wil said...

I think number 4 is tricky. It says that he was fired for embezzlement, it doesn't say that he actually embezzled. He could simply have been wrongly accused.

3 is the lie.

JP said...

#3

All the rest happened because #3 did not.
#4 can be true because you do not really have to embezzle to be fired for it.

I am still surprised this kind of things still happens today. Esp. on men. (not that it is less or more condemnable that on women).

Mark in DE said...

Actually, I was thinking that all 5 were probably true. Not that I think you are an embezzler, but that doesn't mean you weren't fired for that suspicion. But since one of these is a lie, I'm going with #4. I can totally imagine you doing all 5 though.

Jessica said...

I'll say #1, just 'cause I'd hate to think you were harassed by anyone in any way.

GayProf said...

My guess is #4. Thus far, though, I think that I have always been wrong when you have quizzed your readers.

tt said...

I vote for #3.

David said...

Why does #4 look like a trick statement? Even before someone mentioned something about being a waiter. I guess the word, "embezzlement" is too nebulas for my taste.

Speaking of taste, I think #2 is The Lie!!!

derp!

em said...

Dude. Apparently I have a checkered past in comparison with your readership.

I say five because it seems likely.
