So Reddit.com came out with a list of the Top 7 lines that are untruthful...even though they sound very polite. So unless you're horribly gullible, you've probably developed a decent radar for the truth. According to Reddit, here is the Top 7:

  1. "Running late! Be there in five minutes." That really means . . . "I won't even be leaving the house for another five minutes."
  2. "I'm fine." That really means . . . "I'm not fine."
  3. "I'm not trying to be rude." That really means . . . "I'm about to say something incredibly rude."
  4. "Just kidding!" That really means . . . "I'm mostly kidding, but there's some underlying truth about how I feel in there."
  5. "That was my last piece of gum." That really means . . . "I have plenty of gum."
  6. "To be honest with you . . ." That really means . . . "I haven't been honest in anything else I've said so far."
  7. "Clearly," "obviously," and "basically." Those three really mean . . . "I don't have any real evidence to support what I'm saying."
