“A friend of a friend is a seasoned bullshitter. One of the more blatant fake tales came last summer when he claimed to be going to South Africa on holiday for two weeks during the World Cup.
About three days into his “holiday” he was spotted standing at a bus stop in town by a friend who was on a passing bus – having briefly made eye contact, the bullshitter made a pitiful attempt at hiding by sloooowly stepping behind a post box. When the friend texted him to say he’d seen him in town he claimed it must have been a lookalike.
Later that night he uploaded some mobile images on to his Facebook page of a rhino statue and some African kids dancing on the street. Funnily enough it only took about five minutes of Googling ‘South Africa’ to find identical copies of these pictures on the internet.
Another friend texted him asking if it was ok to go round and borrow some DVDs from his flat (he had a key) only to be told “my cousin is staying in the flat while I’m away so you can’t”. After some pressing he eventually said “okay, you can go round on Saturday evening when he’s out BUT DON’T GO IN THE BEDROOM”.
Unfortunately the friend didn’t go round in the end but I like to think that the bullshitter spent that entire Saturday night hiding out in his bedroom cupboard listening for keys in the door.”
