Sales Associate: Okay, what type of running are you doing? I mean are you preparing for a road race or do you need some trail shoes? We have them all.
Customer: I need some street shoes, and I need them to make me run fast, I mean real, real fast.
Sales Associate: Well, sir, how fast you run depends on many things and . . .Customer: But, you don't understand. You see, I've been dating this woman, and well, I kind of told her that I'm a pretty good runner, and uh . . .
Sales Associate: Well, how much, how much DO you run? 10Ks, marathons? What exactly are you doing?
Customer: Well, I don't really run. I mean I run out to get the newspaper in the morning. Listen, I twisted the truth a little.
Sales Associate:Um, yeah, I's say.Well, how much does she run?
Customer: Uh, she's completed, I think, about 20 marathons, all under three hours.
Sales Associate: Ah, man, you're toast. You're in some serious hot water. The only good new shoes will do for you is to kick yourself for not having been honest with her. Just fess up with her.
Customer: Ah, ah, I think I have a leg cramp coming on. Believable?
Sales Associate: Forget it. She won't buy that story. Just be frank with her and apologize. She may or may not accept your apology, but at least you can look at yourself in the mirror and recognize that you told the truth. That way, you can live with yourself another day.
Customer: Yeah. I realize that now.
Sales Associate: Hey, here's one idea. Tell her the truth and she what she says. If she forgives you and you really want to start running, then I suggest signing up for the 5K race we are sponsoring next month. This can get you started on a new path to fitness and a positive relationship.
Customer: And if she doesn't forgive me?
Sales Associate: Well, that's just the consequence of not telling the truth.
