As i was stumbling through CL’s wanted adds, i came across this add asking for liars or people who have been lied to to tell them your most memorable one. Here is one of mine. Maybe you would be willing to share one of yours. We all have them!
I have been lied to oh so many times. One of the biggest was done by an x-boyfriend of mine. I had just had to move and was in the process of looking for a new place. I was staying at a friends. He had been staying with me but could not also stay with my friend.
A couple weeks into my home search, my then boyfriend came over showing me and telling me all of his new tales of being hired as a bike messenger. This was not too much of a stretch because he is an avid fixie-no breaks- all over town- rider. This time however he had the bag and the walkie talkie and the whole bit.
After talking together, we decided maybe we should officially move in together instead of me carrying him on my back like i had done for the last two years. We looked at cute little one bedrooms, in-laws, garden apartments and studios. We saw i think a total of maybe 6.
On our visit to our 7th, he was supposed to meet me at the unit after work. I got there and waited, and waited, and waited. After about 45 minutes, i decided to do some calling. He had been talking about his new job so much, i knew the name and quickly found their phone number on my smart phone. I placed the call and… yep, you guessed it! He never worked there. He did not have any job. He just disappeared for 6-8 hours a day and then we would get together and have dinner.
Needless to say, we did not talk for a long time after that. Months and months.
To this day i think back to how crazy it was to have realized i had been living a lie and thankfully i never signed a lease that i would not have ever been able to afford by myself.
This is just one. I have oh so many. Liars suck.
Thanks for listening.
