Telling the Truth

Working for an organization that investigates and prosecutes cruelty cases, I've noticed that people have a version of the truth that suits them.  So I have to chuckle and not get worked up when people tell me their version of the truth.  For instance:

"My husband was away for awhile."  Translation:  He was in prison.
"I have health problems."                   Translation:  I'm addicted to drugs.
"I took the dog to the vet."                  Translation:  We drove by his office but didn't actually go in.
"I found this cat."                                Translation:  I don't want this cat anymore.
"I own my own home."                       Translation:  My landlord doesn't allow pets so I'm
                                                                                 trying to sneak it by him.
