Honestly isn’t always the best policy, especially when it comes to dealing with dad. Sometimes a little (or less than little) fib goes a long way to keep the peace—and your driving privileges! There are more than a few things for dad to never know about.
Check out these top funny (but true!) lies we say to dad in the moments that matter most. You just might have used a few of these to get out of a tight spot already!
She said: My savings account? Oh yeah totally for next month’s car insurance. Yup.
She meant: Pfft right. Try that new Dooney & Burke tote. There’s a small chance I’ll get in an accident…but a 100% chance I need a new beach bag!
Meeting the New BF
She said: Daddy this is Jack. He’s taking me to prom.
She meant: Yes, prom…and third base.
Is He a Bad Dude?
She said: Dadddd stop grilling him! Jack’s a good guy I promise. No he’s never been arrested, jeez!
She meant: He’s never been caught—he made an awesome run for it after the cops broke up the kegger at his house last weekend!
She said: Omg daddy you’re so paranoid! Nooo Jack and I were watching a MOVIE last night, duh! That’s totally what you heard.
She meant: You heard precisely what you feared you did, father.
Getting Out of Doing Work
She said: Could you change the oil in my car for me, pleeeaaaase Daddy? I don’t feel good, my period is super heavy this month and I’ve got cramps.
She meant: I also just got a mani and there’s no way I’m getting it all nasty messing with the car. And my period isn’t for another five days.
What’s In My Purse
She said: My bag? Oh I’ve just got a bunch of books in there, that’s why it’s so stuffed and heavy.
She meant: It’s jam packed with a flat iron, 5-inch wedges and a dress you’d never let me out of the house in. You really think I wear jeans and a hoodie to go out? Seriously?
