The less satisfied we are at work, the more likely we are to lie to others at the office, according to a recent survey

from SimplyHired.  The survey, which involved over 1,000 professionals, found that 41% of those who are “not at all satisfied” with their work tell at least one white lie a week.  Just 17% of the “extremely satisfied” people lie. The most common fibs? The kind that buy us time away from colleagues, such as, “I’m not feeling well” and “I already have plans after work.”
