The biggest liars according to American comedian, Kevin Hart are married couples. He says that sometimes women force you to lie.
Here is a dialogue between a woman and a man
What do you do when you are forced to lie?
Woman: Hey babe, where are you?
Man: Hey hun, I am at the park feeding pigeons.
Woman: (aggressive voice) Who are you trying to fool? I know you are out with some bi@*h!
