Was just watching a thing there on More4 where this fella started going out with a girl and told her he was an MI5 agent and that the jewellery store she worked in was being targeted by a gang of thieves.
He had her over to his flat[which he had rented for the day] and told her the car outside [alfa romeo or something] was his. He bought her loads of goods and holidays [all in credit cards in her name].
He totally broke her by the end of it saying that the gang were after him and her.
He had her believe he was attacked by the gang, he punched himself to make his lip bleed, ripped his shirt and turned their hotel room upside down. Serious commitment to the cause, which in a strange way, I really respect.
Got me thinking about this corker of a thread I found on boards.ie one day.
Anyway, do any of ye have good tales of lads ye know this type of shit.
I find that most of the products of compulsive lying are hilarious.
A lad I know from Kilkenny does this kind of shit all the time.
Every time me or any of my friends meet him he has a new tall tale.
It usually involves cars or something more extravagent.
Either his dad or his brother have either just got a new car or wrote off the new car that they have just got.
That or someone belong to him has been attacked or knocked down. [We have verified a number of these stories especially as bullshit. Usually because one of my other friends is neighbours with him and finds out the truth right away.]
His best one was he told us he won a yacht in a game of cards.
Bless him he is a simple soul behind it all. He must know we know it is all bullshit.
