Brits fib about weekends to impress
A QUARTER of Britons fib about their weekend activities in a bid to impress others.
A survey of 5000 adults published yesterday found more 27 per cent admitted being economical with the truth when asked by friends or colleagues what they did on their days off. Going out on a Saturday night topped the list of most popular activities people pretended they did ( 33 per cent), followed by visiting friends ( 25 per cent), going to a dinner party ( 17 per cent), going out for a romantic meal ( 12 per cent) and taking a mini-break ( 10 per cent).
Psychologist Corinne Sweet said the survey commissioned by Travelodge revealed a degree of ‘‘ Weekendvy’’.
