    If People Were Straight-up, There Would Be No Need

    there is something to be said about putting our best foot forward in our relations with others.  however, we should not sugar-coat ourselves to the point we manipulate their perceptions of us and then ultimately disappoint and alienate them.  that is the same as lying...

    They could not make the label big enough... He would have to walk around with one of those wearable billboards. A whole section would be needed about the kitchen sink alone

    Warning

    I guess I'm one of those people that should wear a warning label. I will always tell the truth when I'm ask. My dad says I'm like a shot gun. The fact is most people may not wear it like a badge but, if you listen to the person when you meet them for the first time you usually...

    WARNING

    Some people should come with a warning label that warns you that he is going to lie and cheat on you.  I have had a man cheat on me in the past and I had not a clue so a nice warning label would be nice.  Cheating women should have to wear them as well.

    I wish people came with warning labels.  It's usually too late when you find out that someone is not the person they'd portrayed themselves to be.
