Lying characteristics

I was reading my daily dose of “the Bottom line” email I get and came across something that made me think.. “Do I do this when I lie?”.. .Of course I’m not going to admit that I lie. I just tend to stretch the “truth to my convenience” as I call it.

Of course my wife and kids will disagree…

What about you? How can you tell when someone is lying?
