The Forbidden Taboo of Telling the Truth (1526)
Written By: The Anonymous Instigator
While we were all probably brought up with the important value of telling the truth being drummed into our heads, how often do we actually risk the consequences of being really honest? The forbidden taboo of telling the truth came to my attention recently from my fifteen-year-old son Marcelo.
I was talking with my spouse (confidant and best friend) about a problem I was having at the office. My boss who I shall call Rick is a married man who is having an affair with one of our other employees. My standard mode of operation is to ignore this type of behavior at work, even if I disagree with it.
The primary challenge came when my boss asked me to lie to his wife about where he was and what he was doing on an out of town trip to cover up his indiscreet affair. I told my boss that I didn’t feel comfortable with this, as my moto is “Honesty is the best policy”. He also knows that I really like his wife and kids, as I have known them all for about ten years. I also said that I’m a terrible liar and that his wife would surely detect the lie if I told one.
To my amazement, my boss threatened me with not getting considered for an upcoming promotion that I honestly felt I deserved! I was shocked as I thought of Rick as a friend who had displayed a fairly good work ethic in the past. I was very upset about the whole thing and my spouse and I were at a loss as to what to do about it.
