in reply to My favorite lie is...

Years ago when I installed telephones we had a sales guy who said "This is an easy job, just plug it in and turn it on." of course that meant that it would be a big pain in the whatever.

I am also fond of "Just five more minutes." That sort of goes along with the college prof who always said "This assignment shouldn't take long." Finally, there's "I'll just try on one more and then we can go."
