Telling a white lie is harmless, isn’t it? I mean, everyone’s lied a little, right? Unfortunately, sometimes they can get away from us and take on a world of their own. We trolled AskReddit for the biggest lies we could find and how the people who told them pulled them off.
1. But Bees Are Scary
“In elementary school I told everyone that I was allergic to bees so that when a bee came near me and I ran away their thought was “it’s a life and death situation” not “that pussys afraid of bees”
I moved away in middle school, maybe 4 years later, and didn’t retell the lie because I had overcome my fear of bees.”
2. In Too Deep…
“I got married 4 years ago. There’s this guy at work who’s one of THOSE people. The type that keep asking you when you are planning on having a baby once you’re married.
Since we didn’t really have much in common and he heard I got married, that’s the only thing he could come up with to start a conversation. It was just water cooler banter.
I kept telling him “when the time is right”… but he still kept asking me every time I ran into him.
“So, any kids on the way?”
“Hey, expecting any time soon?”
“Any plans on having a baby?”
I got sick of it. One day I just told him “yes, she’s pregnant, we’re having a boy.”.. I figured it would shut him up.
I was so wrong. Jacob is 2 years old now, he started teething, he’s said his first word, he keeps us up at night and… he doesn’t fucking exist.
I’ve told my wife about this and she’s thinks i’m an idiot. At this point, there’s no looking back.”
3. That’s Some Serious Commitment
“A friend of mine pretended to be left handed to switch his seat in class so he could sit next to this “cute thin blonde girl that smells like strawberries” that was actually left handed. He learned to write left handed and even switched hands for sports. He did this from 9th grade until we graduated. They are still going and he is ambidextrous now.”
4. Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems
“I failed my MSc (Master of Science) – I really shouldn’t have done that particular subject and ended up getting a postgraduate diploma.
I lied and got a job saying I have the masters degree. After we changed which group we belonged to at work my new manager brought me into his office and asked me if I have a masters degree (I assumed I was going to be fired) after he said that I was on the wrong pay grade and then proceeded to tell HR to give me more money. I got a 17% pay rise. For the months between him speaking to me and getting my pay rise my heart sank every time he looked mad at his computer (which he regularly does).
I felt bad because he was a really good manager.”
