20 Funny Times People Stretched the Truth Just to Impress Someone

If you’re going to take up lying, at least care enough about your craft to make up worthwhile tales. *shakes fist at cloud* No one takes pride in their work anymore! One Redditor, for example, reminisced about a woman who said she had a higher IQ than Stephen Hawking, only to follow up that bold claim by announcing that she “didn’t know that trains have wheels.” 

Unfortunately, people who tell bold lies like that never leave it at just one. In addition to being smarter than Stephen Hawking, this woman claimed that she almost played Hermoine Granger, and developed a hatred for Emma Watson for beating her out for the role. Sure! 

Meanwhile, other Redditors have recalled the tall tales they’ve been told by people who were dying to impress them, and we have questions for the guy who says he has three souls.

PurePerfection_ 9y When I was living in NYC, I met a guy at a bar who looked about my age (23). Не told me he was a VP at Fakename Investment Bank. Immediate alarm bells, since he was way too young... and also because I was an analyst in the same group he claimed to work in. I asked him his last name, which people he worked with, etc. Не cracks and tells me he's an intern. Actually, that he's GOING to be an intern there, next summer. I laugh it off and ask him which school he's from, and

Also kept telling me how much he'd like for me to bear his children. (he kept forgetting that I'd told him repeatedly that I never wanted to have my own children) All this in an attempt to get me to touch his penis in the back of a crowded airplane. I can only imagine how hard the people directly in front of

AnonismsPlight . 1 2y A woman at LEAST in her mid to late 50s always told everyone for years that she was nervous about turning 40. She had a son in his late 20s and still tried to tell everyone she was only late 30s.

TryNotToBridezilla 2y I hate Emma Watson because I was second in line to play Hermione Granger from a woman who is at least 3 years too old for the role. I have an IQ higher than Stephen Hawking before promptly announcing that she thought trains didn't have wheels. Also any illness you've had, she's had but worse.
