iorst goes on to ask a man who denies ever telling a social lie “I can’t play that game, I’m simply not made that way”. His answer to the argument ” saying nice things to someone does not cost anything” was “It does, It destroys our credibility.” which is basically saying that it destroys our quality of trust in each other. Viorst often repeats the lines “what about you” or “do you agree” Viorst begins to contrast herself to a society who lies about lying. She describes it as “Social lies with a form of little white lies” most people believe it is assailing to be clearly honest without these little white lies. They say our honesty can be embarrassing and painful.
