Why do some people lie & not think twice about it?

I'm not religious at all but I've always felt that if I lie I will just be struck down by Karma or something else so I never do it. My fiance lies to people about the stupidest stuff like it's second nature.

My fiance lies to people about the stupidest stuff like it's second nature. If he wants to cancel a client over the phone he'll pick up a hammer or something & start pounding it so the person can hear & say that he had a flood in his place or something. Why so thought out? Why not just say I overbooked myself or I just can't do it today?

All the bigger things check out like his whereabouts or cheating have never been an issue but he lies about SMALL things. And he's also not good at it so he gets caught every single time by everyone & just keeps doing it. Who does that?

If he slips up & you catch him he'll say that he never said what he JUST said & that you heard wrong.

I have a friend that's the same way. Why? I could break out in hives from telling a lie. Why is it so natural for some?
