Newly Knighted Bill Gates Calls Brits A Bunch Of Liars

from the blaggers! dept

How’s that for gratitude? Just a week or so after Bill Gates was Knighted by the Queen, Microsoft has released a study saying that two-thirds of British workers are liars. It’s not exactly clear why Microsoft is studying the honesty levels of those in the UK, but apparently it’s a big concern to them. Of course, it’s not entirely clear how the study determined this, and what is considered a “lie.” The details show that most of the lying is done to a boss — which isn’t that surprising. At some point, plenty of people lie to their boss (“yeah, sure, almost finished with that…”) but that isn’t necessarily as horrible as the headline makes it sound.
