Lie, Cheat, and Steal?

The Friday 5 for this week is kinda nasty. I guess for some folks it can invoke deep soul-searching thought... I wasn't sure if I'd bother to answer, but I decided it's better if no one thinks I have something to hide :|.

  1. When was the last time you cheated?
  2. When was the last time you stole?
  3. When was the last time you lied?
  4. When was the last time you broke or vandalized another's property?
  5. When was the last time you hurt a loved one?

  1. When was the last time you cheated?
    Does reading the answers to the exercises in a technical book count? Or peeking at the answer for part of a crossword puzzle? How about reading the last chapter of a book to see who comes out alive? (yes, I do finish the book and read all of the middle).

  2. When was the last time you stole?
    Probably when I was less than 5.... I even provide my own pens when I'm working in an office.

  3. When was the last time you lied?
    Lies of omission? Lies of commission? The general societal "white lies", e.g. "Whatever you want to do is fine with me?" I don't lie much; if I've done so recently (any of the above types) I don't recall the circumstances.

  4. When was the last time you broke or vandalized another's property?
    Broke? Unintentionally, occasionally; I can't remember when...I accidentally dinged Rich's car about 10 years back. Never intentionally (I'm very careful of property) and certainly never vandalism.

  5. When was the last time you hurt a loved one?
    Verbally? - occasionally, during an argument. I'm sorry.
    Physically? - rarely and by accident; occasionally I trip over a cat, or step on his little foamrubber foot. I don't hit...
    Intentionally? - very rarely; sometimes an argument gets out of hand. I try hard not to let that happen. The Three-fold law applies for arguments.
