Pet Peeve Phriday: Honest!
Honestly, to tell you the truth, it drives me crazy when people preface what they say with, "to be honest with you . . . " or "to tell you the truth . . ." What? You've been lying to me the rest of the time?
Stop it! Just tell me the truth, and be honest, all the time.
What say you? Do you agree? Please, you can be honest with me (pun intended)!
And while we're at it, what are your pet peeves?
Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil. (Matthew 5:37 [ESV])
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them. (Proverbs 11:3 [ESV])
