A 300 lb co-worker who claimed to run 5 miles every morning with his pals from the SWAT team. And he owned a classic car that I insisted he bring in to show off and the next day he said he was in an accident on the way to work and it was now written off.
One time we traded Goosebumps books. and when I gave him his back it had EXTREMELY MILD wear and tear from a book being read. And then I picked mine up a couple days later and it was torn to f---ing s--t. It had pen marks all over Slappy the Dummy's face outlining his jaw and all over his body. Everywhere on the back too. And I swear to God, he claimed that he dropped the book on a "Swiss Chalet Sword" the little plastic ones you often find in drinks with a lime wedge speared through it.
That he knew the owner of Oceania and could get a group of us in for free. When we all actually turned up to go to the club, he ran away.
Work at Dominoes. Lots of deluded people. My favorite is a guy who claims he can speak 17 languages. Used to be a cryptologist in the Navy or some shit. We have a Spanish speaker, a Hindi speaker and I speak Mandarin. We all test him all the time and he will respond with gibberish. It is absolutely amazing that he trying to maintain this lie.
