Honesty is always the best policy, except when it's not. In theory, everyone loves a truth teller, but in reality - a lot of people expect sugarcoated white lies instead of complete honesty.

In general, sticking to the truth is the best way to live a life of integrity and trustworthiness. But there are times in the workplace when that honesty can deeply backfire, as well as loved ones who prefer politeness over transparency.

In a popular Reddit thread, people who strive to be honest at all times shared times it majorly backfired.

1. From workyaccount:

At my last job during training we had to do an "anonymous review" of our trainer. I was respectful and honest but it was not a good review of her. I explained why she was bad at training and how she wasn't receptive to questions. Little did I know "anonymous" meant anonymous to her, but not anonymous to the person reviewing.
