Some were a decade older than me, some a decade younger. And honestly, it was refreshing to know, the ages didnt matter. Assholes are assholes no matter how old they are.
One guy and his girl, rode in a taxi with us. They asked the driver what the worst story they had in a taxi was. He tells us about two guys in the back, blowing each other. (who cares, really?) And he proceeds to tell us if its two girls he loves it. So this guy tells us he pulls over and tells the two guys to get out. They laugh, and cheer him on. Im so mad, but of course I sit silently(and ultimately, complaisant)
Anyhoo, this guy tells the cabby's story, then adds his own twist, says the cab driver said, Get out motherfuckers or I'll kick your ass!!! When I heard him RETELL his story with the new twist, I say to my husband, "He didnt say that!" To which my DH says, yeah, I noticed too.
So, Why do people lie about things that mean nothing? To embellish a story? The origional was good enough, but he soiled it.
Nothing is more upsettng to me than a liar. I dont know, I just think, Lie to me once, and I will doubt everything you've ever told me before and will tell me in the future.
Although, maybe it was a harmless thing, him just wanting to entertain everyone.
So, I suppose this is my rant. how do YOU feel? Harmless or hurtful?
