Is it proper to use lying to refer to something one says one will do (or not do) and then later fail to follow through on, either due to neglect or forgetfulness?
I have heard twice in the same week, in completely different circles, people use lying to refer to something other than the intent to deceive.
I corrected it, the first time. When it came up the second time in a different context I wondered if I was missing something!
So sorry to even have bothered you all with this. Apparently these were folks making use of one particular definition of lie and ignoring or not aware of the obvious primary definition. You're right! It is right there in the dictionary!
