IN ALL CANDOR – Marilyn Armstrong


In all candor, you can trust me!

There are some things that as soon as someone says it, you just know you should make sure you still have your wallet.

Anyone who looks you in the eyes and says “Trust me,” you should absolutely not trust him or her.

Anyone who starts a sentence with “In all candor,” is lying.

Other lookout words?

“Honestly,” and “I wouldn’t lie to you.” I’m sure that somewhere in that pack there are people who you can trust and who isn’t lying, but mostly, all of them ARE lying and you should not trust them. Not anyone. These days, given the state of things, probably you should be very careful about trusting yourself, much less the rest of the world.

In all candor, you’ll simply have to trust me on this one!

  1. Well, seeing as it’s YOU and all…mebbe I WILL (trust you). 😉 Now there are those out there whom simply SEEING clues one in that the person is dishonest. No words are necessary.


    1. Every time I watch a TV show and the guy/woman says “Trust me,” I immediately assume he or she done it. And usually, he or she has in fact done it. Garry takes his best guess from the most popular guest actors on the show. HE is always right. The leading guest star ALWAYS did it.


  2. And anytime anyone says “I don’t want to sound like a racist but….” they are about to say something really racist.
