Sir.

This is a very typical situation and a testing one also. My decision would be that I will not lie although I love this company and I love my part of the job but I cannot trade with my principles for the job I have from the beginning of my life build these principles it took me half of my life to establish personality such that I have it in me that I do not play anytime in life whatever the situation might be. Super it becomes very difficult for me to break these rules in my life although I will do anything else which might help the company. I hope you understand my problem as you have understood me before in the past on many occasions.

If you lie in any profession You aren't trustworthy, its a business after-all. You have to be transparent. I'VE worked in the company where they had kind of invisible lie detector because company worked so smartly.

Your work your dedication, and your profile has to be trusted.

Lying is not good but telling not truth can also be a way in way of MANIPULATION, so its better not to tell lie because of image of company and of ourself but to tell that thing in a different way can be a solution for that as this is a world of competition.

Lie. Every person tell lies in one way or other in day to day life. But the lie is harmful or not depends on the severity of lie. So, first of all, I will analyze whether the lie can harm someone not only me but also others. If not then next thing I will see whether the lie is worth lieing or not i.e whether the work can be done without lying or not. After analyzing I will take a wise decision whether to lie or not.

Sir,

Firstly I will see, by saying truth what amount of loss is caused, if the loss is less I would prefer truth and if major I'll try to find some other solution. If that doesn't help I would lie as long as it does not harm others.
