A mate of mine is forever telling a tale. I feel a bit sorry for him actually, it's like his only way to get noticed, but it's also starting to pee me off. Does he really think I'm that stupid - it's actually insulting me.
It's always little things, never a tall tale. But he can ask me questions about a subject one minute - say it's something about the girls. Then in the next breath he'll say he does me a huge favor and has sorted x y and z out for them, when in actual fact he knew nothing of the sort until I'd told him. Does that make sense?
How do you deal with this?

i dont think i understand...but reagrding billy bullh1tters...you have to ignore it coz its not worth the energy to try & 'out' them.

But it fecks me off he thinks he can pull the wool over my eyes. I feel like I need to say something as it gives me the rage. Why bullcrap me?

he probably doesnt think "oh yea she's thick as p*gsh*t"...he probably believes it him self.
if you turn round as say "really? are you kidding me" he'd get all defensive and act as if you are in the wrong. just take the (quiet) moral high ground and laugh at him
I dont really understand what ou are saying hun?!

I it's go along with it and then roll my eyes when there out of sight. Ultimately it means its difficult to have a genuine friendship with someone. Any kind of lying makes me uncomfortable but I wish I was a bit more confrontational.
Do you think you could have a conversation with him about it?

I know a few people like this. Most of the time I just ignore and spend less and less time with them. I have called one person out once in a fit of rage. They got defensive and never spoke to me again. Problem solved!

I can't stand people like this so have phased most out, but if someone I knew come out with crap like that I'd pull em up on it. I don't do liars!

Hmm will have to see if I can bring it up with him. Thanks all

I can't listen to fibs, I don't think I could stick it tbh. Especially if he is blatant and obvious about it.

I have a friend that does this and I find it very wearing. H can't stand it and constantly tells me to cull her but we've been friends a long time and our parents are friends so it's difficult. It used to really upset me when we were younger but as I've got older I've actually started to feel sorry for her that she thinks she needs to do it, as what does it achieve? It's obviously a self esteem issue that she feels she needs to at best embellish and at worst outright lie! I could write a book of examples over the years, some whoppers that made my blood boil as I felt she thought I'd come down in the last shower!

We have someone over here that works with H and I've become friendly with his wife. In the last few weeks we've discovered he's told H some big fat porkers! It's odd to me that someone feels the need to do it but I guess it's just the way some people are... If it bothers you that much, maybe spend less time with him or point things out to him when you know he's talking crap.
