Exhaustion no excuse for lying to friends

Dear Carolyn: I recently started working longer hours and it gets exhausting. I used to hang out with my friends — who are very dear to me — every day after work, but now I’m too tired to stay up late like before. They are aware my hours changed but they continue to call, text, and even come by my house.

I often tell them I have more work to do — I don’t — because I don’t want to offend them by telling them I would rather watch “The Office” and go to bed than hang out with them.

Is my lying and laziness justified, or should I just get over myself and go with them? — Lazy Liar
