You wouldn't tell a new employer that you had an unfulfilling sex life,
that you pick your nose, or that every Friday you get lazy and don't work
hard. So why tell a new employer that the last job didn't work out?

Because:

a. who cares (unless the job is for an Escort Agency or as a WH intern)?

b. the interview will reveal most gross habits of the interviewer/ee if it
runs over 30 minutes.

c & d. any reference check worth a damn will reveal that you're lazy /
been canned.

The point here is honesty. If I need an employee / business partner to do
their best by my company and the client(s), then trust is the key. And,
lying by omission is still lying.

No trust, no future for the relationship.
