A Truthful Mincha
The Chazon Ish used to daven Mincha in the early afternoon at his home. Although there was a core group of regulars who davened at the minyan every day, it was often difficult to complete a minyan at that hour.
One day, to the great dismay of all the people waiting it took a particularly long time to gather a minyan. When the tenth man finally arrived, it had gotten so late that one of the regulars told the Chazon Ish that he had previously made an appointment with someone in his house at precisely this time. The Chazon Ish replied, "For a man who cleaves to the attribute of truth, there is no question as to what to do." The man left to his house, and the group was again left without a tenth man.
