    Recently someone said: "My girl-fried thinks I've got a 'situational relation' with the truth" I know it all too well from the petite bourgeoisie around here how politely they can talk to you and mock you behind your back. Yesterday morning for example, a young colleague said to someone "J., I've got as question regarding the W-LAN stuff..." and two minutes later he said to others : "I've asked that computer freak about the W-LAN thing..." I laughed and said: "Now I'd find it interesting to know how you call ME when I don't listen." We may adopt different stances after receiving new informations, but it's probably no sign of particular personal accuracy and consistency if such change takes only a few hours time. Nevertheless, I imagine that it is possible to say as Abbas does: "For me personally, I consider the things to be like this, but politically I have to take into consideration the will of others who elected me as their representant."
