We saw some computing variants of the Three Great Lies last week. I am sure there are lots of non‑computing versions too, for example:-
  • 1: Somebody is on their way to help you already.
  • 2: The cheque's in the post.
  • 3: This won't hurt.
  • Anybody know any more?

    "Maybe"

    Why not just say "no" at the outset?
