Friends with a Liar

I am friends with a liar. He lies all the time, and he will lie about anything. He will lie about the mundane, he will lie about the fantastic, and he will steal other people’s stories and make them his own. You can’t trust anything that he says. He will lie about what time he left the house, what shoe he put on first, and what he had for dinner. He will lie about places he’s been to and people he’s met. I don’t know why he lies so much, but he does. It’s probably for attention, but at this point it’s probably a habit. It kind of sucks being friends with a liar. You have to take everything he says with a grain of salt. You want to believe him but you can’t. He’s still my friend though. We’ve gone through some shit, both good and bad. He’s always been dependable, just not trustworthy.

Compulsive Liars

Compulsive liars are people who habitually lie for no reason at all. They lie about what they do, how much they make, what they did last night. They embellish, they exaggerate, they make up things. Everybody knows a compulsive liar, where everything that they say has to be taken with a grain of salt because half the things that they say are complete bullshit. Most of the times the things that they lie about aren’t worth lying about. I know a girl that claims she was Prom Queen and Valedictorian of her high school and she brings it up fairly regularly. My cousin went to the same school as her and can verify that she was neither of those. I confronted my friend with the truth, and she denied it and called my cousin a liar and a bitch. Then I took out her high school yearbook and she had to shut up and admit defeat. I wish I could say that she learned her lesson, but she still spins tall tales and false anecdotes every single day. I can’t trust her, so I can’t be her friend. Trust is integral in any relationship. You have to be able to trust your friends, your family, your lover, your coworkers, even public servants. You want to believe what they say is true, and you’ll believe them unless you have a reason not to. And you just can’t trust compulsive liars.

Pretending That You’ve Seen A Movie You Haven’t Seen

People are habitual liars. We lie all the time. We lie about important things and we lie about unimportant things. We lie just to lie. We even lie about the movies we’ve seen and the books we’ve read. Pretending that you’ve seen a movie you haven’t seen is one of the most common lies told. You’ll be at a party and everyone is talking about the new George Clooney flick that you haven’t seen or heard about, but you don’t want to feel left out. You join the conversation even though you have no idea what to say, so you just stammer out a bunch of bullshit about how you like the dialog and the chemistry between the actors. You’ll feel slightly ashamed that you’re lying about something so trivial, but not enough to prevent you from lying. Movies are a shared experience, they are a common bond, they connect people. People lie about seeing a movie because they just want to feel involved.
