What is the biggest line of B.S. you have ever gotten from someone in your entire life?
Sadly, it is from one of my friends who refused to marry someone he has been with for a very long time..
When asked why he would not get married the answer was " I am too rich to get married.."
From a woman's stand point, and I am old fashioned in this sense..the only answer is "I don't love her enough to marry her. "
Of course, that is my opinion only..and I can be wrong and any way even if I think the answer is ridiculous, he is entitled to it.
Being told: "No, I don't have any information or notes on what you said-why don't you tell me what I want to hear?..." By an EO rep who had been taking notes and writing down what I said about incidents that had taken place between a male coworker and myself. (I did not want an investigation or to press charges. I was talked into doing it for 'someone else who WAS pressing charges against him.')
She had thrown all of the notes that she had from when I gave her my testimony, away. She openly told me that she thought I was lying because and I quote: "He doesn't seem like the kind of person that could do that..."
Needless to say I was glad to leave that job.
Moral of the story: People ARE capable of doing BAD things to other people.
It was a 5-year line of BS from my ex-husband that started with "I love you" and ended with "she's pregnant."
Other than that -- probably the explanation my dear cousin gave me about how he "fixed" his drinking problem by going to the bar every night for a month but not permitting himself to drink.
"I didn't mean to do it" (depending on the situation of course) ---Still in my mind Im thinking-- "So you didnt mean to send that message to her on facebook-- what you sleep-text at 4 am? --You didnt mean to leave it open--for me to see?! -- you didnt mean to get caught?--you didnt mean to--- What a load of sh*t" -- I tell you.
didnt mean to get so personal--but is that not true? -- lovely question, wont be making that same mistake twice.
I hate those sleeping text messages...most likely whomever you are referring to didn't mean to get caught or didn't mean to be born an asshole.
Two words.. and I have to type more than two words just to answer this... Those two words are ?... TRUST ME !
There are many big lines of B.S. but I would have to say that when my boyfriend's cousin told me "I've done everything I could for my child" and said that the child's mother did nothing is the biggest line of B.S. I've heard. The truth was that the guy is a deadbeat who denied it was his daughter at first, he is also a polygamist that lives off of the women he is with, he is a compulsive liar, he has NEVER had a job, and he has never paid child support.
He popped up while I was at my beau's house several years ago. Out of the blue he started sharing personal info without being questioned about parenting, his personal life, or anything of the sort which was very strange. Apparently there truly is someone unsavory in every family. Because he burned my beau one too many times, we have not had the displeasure of his presence in several years
Being told at my last three professional jobs that there were plenty of opportunities for advancement and they saw a future for me with the company, when really there were almost no opportunities for advancement and they pushed people out after two years to keep wages low.
Don't get me wrong, I don't need to advance or be important or anything like that, but I took three high stress entry level positions in a row on the promise at the final interview that I could move up after I put in one year, only to get to the end of my first year and find out there WAS no 'up' to move to. One the the places actually went belly up after the first year. (So, that would be down, not up.)
It would have been nice of there had been some honesty. I can handle that. Just say, "Look, this is a thankless brutal job and it will never be anything else, but your paychecks will cash, they'll be solvent.BTW we'll try to push you out when your pay gets beyond point 'X'."
Then I know what I'm in for. But they sugarcoat it to get people on board.
I will not do this kind of work again. It was a hard lesson though. Some employers lie. That's what it was called when I was a kid. Not putting a positive spin on things, not 'right sizing', but lying.
Peter, Peter, Peter...what a great question. I have so enjoyed reading all of the comments so far.
CriticalMessage...LOVE IT so true.
NikkiLeeReyes...they always want to be caught eventually
My biggest line of B.S. in my life I have actually gotten several times. My big heart and trusting nature always got me in trouble.
"I Promise I will Pay you Back!!! You set a repayment schedule, and I will follow it. You don't know how much this loan will help me. Thank You, I will not forget this kindness."
Oh my, I've gotten it so many times. I'm somewhat of a... blue sheep? My family doesn't quite hate me nor does it take me any bit seriously. I'm going to refrain from this however, and give you a little excerpt from my life having to do with a bad relationship.
The biggest line, I'd have to say, was from my ex. She stated that she was hitting on a guy, told him she wanted to kiss him and would, but only if she wasn't with me. In her mind, apparently, this wasn't anything to get mad at because she didn't do it. She wanted to but didn't.
I still don't even know what to say about that, it was just insane. Completely. Utterly. Insane.
"I love you." "I'll always be right here." "I promise."
Easily the biggest bunch of BS I've ever heard.
It was on Hub Pages in the form of a question:
Why did Man Create God?
I will accept that some people do not believe in God. Do not tell me that Man Created God.
The other was when I lost my job was "Things are going to be great for you."
17 months later, I am still unemployed and now pushing 61.
The man who says " I only had one drink! " when he comes in loud and rolling, smelling of alcohol
Okay this may or may not be the biggest line of B.S. I've ever heard, but it's one of them. Dish Network posted an employment ad on Craig's List stating that starting salary for their technicians is $35,000/year. Pretty decent starting wages. What I've come to find out after being interviewed by them is that the position is not hourly or salary, but rather pay is based on a per-install basis. One would have to work about 70 hours a week and basically give up any kind of life to work for these jackasses. They also don't tell you, even in pre-screening, that you must buy $1500.00 in tools. In addition, they fail to tell you that working a six day week does not mean Mon-Sat, but instead means one weekday off. They work 365 days a year. I'd personally rather work two hourly jobs than work for Dish Network. They are ALWAYS hiring because NOBODY stays. Direct TV will soon blow this measly competition away.
