Was your vacationah-mazing? You’re probably lying. A new survey by flight-comparison site Jet Cost found that a lot of people fib how great their vacations are. In fact, two-thirds of survey respondents confessed that they misrepresented how great their last trip was, especially when it came to the weather, where they stayed, and the things they did and saw.
Why the vacation lying? Social media. People feel pressure to show what a great life they’re having – and that includes their vacations. According to survey respondents, they lied because they wanted to impress people by appearing well-traveled and worldly.
Survey respondents also revealed that they lied about how much alcohol they drank, how much money they spent, and even how much they enjoyed the vacation overall. 10% admitted to posting a fake photo to make their trip seem more glamorous and exciting. (Travel+Leisure)

Blame it on traffic …According to a new study from Valvoline, traffic makes us late to work an average of 77 days a year. And we spend 152 hours – or 19 full work days -- a year stuck in traffic. If your commute is longer than the average of 35 minutes, both those numbers go up.
