They asked, you told (my tactic: little white lie)

I agree with the posts that say "don't tell". But in a situation like yours, where you were specifically "asked" what was wrong, I have used the following response with good results: I tell anyone(work related) who asks that I have a "chronic medical condition"(technically true) which worsens from time to time; and makes me, kind of, extra tired. I say, "I don't really like to bother people with it, so I just keep on working the best that I can.". If they ask what the condition is, I say, "well, it's kind of a yucky thing, you really wouldn't want to know the details, and explaining is kind of painful for me"(or words to this effect).
Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, telling a white lie, in order to protect yourself or your privacy, is something that is *always* justified. Hope this helps, next time you have this type of situation.CarolAnn
