@MrsPanda99:  I used to be “friends” with a guy like that. Though in his case, I think he actually had a mental problem and was a pathological liar. He once told his roommate that his truck had a supercharger in it, so his roommate was like “oh cool, can I see?” because he knows about cars and was interested in actually looking at the engine of a vehicle with a supercharger in it. So my friend actually went so far as to take roommate outside, open the hood of his truck and point at the engine. Which did not have a supercharger. Like, what was the plan there? Obviously the guy is going to see that you don’t have what you said you have. Were you hoping a supercharger would magically appear during your walk from the apartment to the truck? What a weirdo.

That guy pulled shit like that all the time. It was so ridiculous. He once told me he had 15 brothers. Yeah buddy, I’ll bet you do. I’ll bet you do.

@MrsPanda99:  hahaha that’s really funny. 

I would have said (after a good minute of just staring) “Wow…DD…you really do hide them well!” then awkwardly sip on w/e drink I was holding. 

To answer your question, yes I do know people like that. I usually let the awkwardness kinda soak in, before I make some kind of smart ass remark that let’s the person know that I know that they’re full of sh:t. And then laugh it off. 

I’m mean like that.

Honestly, VS sizes are a joke.  I look at what they consider an A, and feel that wouldn’t have even been a training bra 15 years ago.  They are vanity sized to the max.  I’m a DD there and I CERTAINLY am not large enough to be so.  A nice C IF I’m lucky perhaps, but not what I always felt a D (nevermind DD) should/would look like.

I had a friend like that in college, but he told stuff that was so unbelievable you had to wonder why he even TRIED.  I think he was pathological though.  It never ended with him.

@MrsPanda99:  Isn’t it horrible? Ain’t nobody got time for that. 

But yeah in work environments the awkward silence will do just fine. *evil smile*

@MrsPanda99:  I am sure that if I was in the same situation my sarcastic wit would have been thrown into overdrive.  I have a difficult time with my mouth, and people who make stupid remarks or obviously lie seem to somehow ALWAYS make it onto my radar…..

I know several people like this…..most try to avoid me and my mouth.  ROTFLMAO!!

It makes me question do stupid people know they are stupid?  Or are they just entertainment for the rest of us??

DD bras at VS fit like a B or C, so she might actually be telling the truth.

Some people almost can’t help it.   I think pathologic liars are really sad.

@Sunfire:  😛 

Too bad when the situation actually comes I get tongue tied. Hate when that happens!

@MrsPanda99:  Bwahaha! I feel like I’ve run in to a slew of these kinds of people over the years.

Most recently, it’s a new apprentice that likes to tag along when FI and I have lunch at work.  He’s constantly bragging about how much weight he can lift, how tough he is, etc. I would normally just eye roll and tune it out, but he feels the need to throw little comparison jabs at my fella while he’s at it. Joking about how if my FI was a ‘real man’, etc. NOT amusing to me.

He pulled up a picture on his phone earlier this week of him at the gym, in a squat rack, standing up with the barbell across his shoulders. He started bragging about how he was squatting 315lbs (142.88kg).  Really?  I count a 45lb(20.41kg) plate on either side, and a 45lb bar, for a total of 135lbs(61.24kg)

I had to call him out on that one.

@MrsPanda99:  I’d just like to point out that true DDs (on a small band size like this girl probably is) aren’t as big as people make them out to be.  Clicky for the bra band project’s selection of DDs in varying band sizes.

To answer the orignal question…I don’t know anyone who lies about dumb things.

Our best man used to date a girl we called the “one-upper”. Whatever kind of story or problem you have, she can top it. Often this meant that she would tell blatant lies. Some of them I called her out on and some I did the “blink and walk away.” It kind of depended on my mood and how easy it would be to prove she was lying.

Thankfully she’s long gone.
