G'ah I missed out too. So just to clarify in relation to the poll, DHP you would tell Maris' lawyers that Niles' had feelings for Daphne thus leaving him completely bankrupt and allowing Maris to triumph even after everything she put him through and even though she was the one who had an affair?

I'm supposed to be working, but this site just keeps sucking me back in! :(

I tell 'white lies' which are not designed to mislead people, but to spare their feelings.

I've also occasionally told lies which are designed to mislead. It's certainly not something I make a habit of, and I am ashamed of it. However, I'd put money on the fact that I'm not the only one here who's done this at some stage or another.


In 1996, when I left school, we had a 'leaving do'. My family couldn't afford to pay for me to go, so the school paid - the Head of 6th Form organised it for me, and I was really grateful.

The day afterwards, the Head said to me 'so - did you enjoy the meal?'

As it happens, I hadn't, and I told her so. Her face fell, and I imagine she was feeling sorry for me, but also probably wishing that the school hadn't bothered paying if I wasn't grateful.

I was grateful, and if I'd just said 'yes, thank you', I'd have spared her feelings, she would have felt appreciated and she wouldn't have thought badly of me. Eleven years later, I still regret not telling that one little white lie.

In fact, I think in some situations I would feel selfish if I didn't tell a white lie.

I realise you missed the earlier posts, but I mentioned there that I haven't seen the episode, and so haven't a clue what you're talking about I'm afraid. I was just commenting that I'd always tell the truth, and addressing the underlying principle.

Oop I did read the earlier posts but somehow missed that you hadn't seen the episode sorry :oops:

:P bugger off! Obviously I am at a loss to understand as to how anyone could think that would be the right thing to do in that situation but I set up the poll to find out just that! Perhaps DHP will indulge me when he has seen the episode because I really would like to hear his view on that one. I won't bite I promise! :)

As soon as I see the episode, I'll give an informed response, I promise. I hope to pick up season 6 as soon as it hits the sales, which judging from the rate at which previous seasons and other DVDs have hit the sales, should be in no more than 1 month from now; 2 at most.

I get a bit teary eyed watching that one too.

DHP puts on a masterful performance in that episode.
