amandajane4949:  Sounds like she’s a liar, got caught, probably embarassed that she got caught and is acting out in anger because of it.  I stay away from people like that.  If someone can lie to my face about something so stupid, I can’t trust them to tell me the truth about anything.

I am a lawyer/disbarred lawyer is not exactly a white lie lol.

I don’t really understand why you care so much whether she is lying or not that you’d actually check on someone you’re not even friends with.  Yes it sounds like she’s lying but who really cares?

amandajane4949:  I may have read too much into it, but I took your comment about attempting to help her with her recovery as significant to the issue of whether or not she is honest.  I know that I would have difficulty dedicating a lot of time to someone else’s recovery if they couldn’t be honest with me about anything.

You said you were helping her–are you her sponsor? If so, yes, it’s troubling that she’s lying to you. Either way, though, if she’s a recovering addict and she’s lying about major stuff like that, it’s probably not a good sign. If you were generally worried about her because you knew she was lying and it could hinder her recovery, then, yes, I think it’s okay to check on her. If you were just trying to call her out because you thought she was lying and part of you wanted to maybe embarrass her a little, then, no, not cool.

amandajane4949:  why does it matter if she’s a lawyer, a baker, the president, or anything in between? she’s not, and now is probably just embarrassed. maybe she’s embarrassed about what her real job is. who knows. it’s not really your concern though unless it’s something that would potentially affect her recovery…and even then i’m not 100% sure it’s your business. sorry.
