Mr. Scot

Lying Liars and the People They Lie To

Recommended Posts

So in the light of the Manti Te'o debacle, I'm wondering how many people on here have a story of someone in their past who attempted to perpetrate a colossal deception and failed...or succeeded.

Have you ever known a big fat liar? If so, what did they lie about?

If you know fishermen and golfers, you likely know liars :lol:

A golfer that's a liar is a low down dirty scumbag. What's the point in it if you have to lie about it?

I've known some compulsive liars. Sad.

The lying about your golf score really bothers me once they are bragging about their score.

I was once married into a family of golf fanatics.

My former father-in-law used to lie on family golf outings.

Biggest one I ever knew was a lady I worked with on a prior job.

Anytime someone had a major illness or a death in the family, she'd go around the entire office - I'd estimate about two to three hundred employees - and take up a collection for them. I generally contributed something myself, depending on how much I had in my pocket (like a lot of folks, I hardly ever carry cash these days).

Heard one day that she had been fired, and shortly thereafter learned that all that money she had collected never actually made it to the people it was supposedly for. She was keeping it herself :unsure:

That wasn't the reason she was fired though. She had been let go because she kept going out on funeral leave, and apparently one of her "family members" died a couple of times :blink:

Given that record, it wouldn't surprise me if she turned out to be Manti Te'o's girlfriend.

Military liars are the worst.

There was a fat and lazy guy in my section and he always told the tallest tales.

He was called out during one of his rants. Another guy in the room said "That's MY story, you must have heard me tell it."

There's the old military addage:

If the story starts, "This is no bullshit," or "This is a no-shitter...," odds are it's not the truth.

And I play a lot of golf and rarely listen to guys telling golf stories because the 3-foot putt soon becomes the 16-footer downhill with a hard left to right break...blah, blah, blah...

Golf cheaters are worse than golf liars, and I've been paired with golf cheaters- not fun in the least.

A guy at my dad's country club growing up was an insane liar when it came to golf. The club would track everyone's handicap and everyone knew this guy sucked but he was always in the single digits. I never understood it, he was one of the richest guys there, drove a Ferrari, huge house, trophy wife, etc, he simply HAD to cheat when playing golf.
