little white lies

my mother lies alot.

sometimes big lies. but mostly little white lies.

eg. my humidifier caught fire. she lives closer to the chemist i bought it from then i do. so she took it back for me so it could be sent to the manufacterer. she told them a big bullshit story about what happened. and it was so embarrasing cause i then have to say.. 'um actually blah blah"

its impossible to have conversations with her she just lies so much. i spend most of the time trying to work out if what she is saying is true or has any truth to it...

i dont invite her places where my friends are its so embarrasing my mom just tells stupid stories.

she told everyone at her work she spent 6wks at my house after DD born helping me. never happened.

she tells the ppl at her work my dad is a wife beater angry man. total lie.

i realise its for attention.

there are thousands of more things i could tell you but i dont want to bore you all.

does anyone one else have someone like this in their lives?

That is nutty. Why would someone lie for no reason? I don't get it.

Wow. This sounds just like my mother. She has NO friends because of this. She just lies.. and lies.. and lies, on top of lies. Its sickening.

It could be a compulsion that's simply beyond her control. Some people lie for no other reason than they just have to. I don't understand it, really.

But my brother and my SO's sister are like that. My brother tells stories that aren't true to make his life more interesting. I've called him out on it before and he used to get so mad. I don't much anymore, only if I catch him in it.

SO's sister, she's got a bunch of other mental problems, so lying is the least of her problems. It's really annoying/frustrating though, because she's not getting help for anything.

Oh yeah, and my daughter's BD lies all the time, but he just does it to stir shit up.

My SO and I broke up for a bit last year, and they would occasionally have "Steph Bash Fests". BD and I were talking because of our daughter and he'd tell me that SO (at the time ex-SO) would text him up when he was drunk and go on huge rants about me. Wasn't true.

He told SO that I did weed with him when he and I dated. Also not true. I've never touched the stuff, and was pregnant almost right away with him, so I wouldn't have done it anyway.

He's just a shit disturber.

My aunt and my cousin are both like this.  My aunt has told so many many lies that she ruined relationships between family memebers with her lies.  Her daughter got the lieing from her.  They both are the first people to say I hate liars and you can never believe a word that comes out of either of their mouths.  My cousin was supposedly pregnant and due in April.  Well no baby has arrived yet and she has just stopped talking to everybody.

That would drive me crazy.  But yes, I do know people who are like that, they just lie a lot.  And they're not even good at it so you catch them in lies all the time. 

I'm lazy, so, for  me, the truth is a whole lot easier, lol.

honestly i think its all about attention. maybe she doesnt have anything to say so she makes up what she thinks is interesting..
