What’s The Craziest Lie You’ve Ever Told?
We’ve all lied to our parents at one time or another. Whether it was that time that you got the car towed and told the rents your BFF was driving (and you were being responsible because you had a drink!), or the time when you came home at a ridiculous hour after being at your BF’s (or booty call’s) house and said you were taking care of a crying friend who just got dumped – and she gave you her brother’s clothes to wear home – we’ve all committed the sin.
And why not? It’s easier than dealing with the yelling/door slamming.
I know I’ve done it. After getting pulled over for speeding while jamming out to Brit Brit in my car, my parents were absolutely furious. So I said I got my period and it was such a mess that I needed to get somewhere fast! They understood (if my dad sticking his fingers in his ears and walking out of the room counts as understanding) and, although still weren’t happy, it did bring a lot of the screaming to an end. (Sorry, mom and dad.)
We never want to disappoint our parents, so rather than see that look on their face or get the silent treatment, we make up a story. Some are minor (“I have no idea why that vodka bottle is filled with water!”) and others cause a whole slew of problems/law suits (“Uh, I fell asleep while getting this tattoo and he put 56 stars on my face!!”), but we all do it for one reason: fear of the parental wrath.
Parents are scary, we get it.
So we want to know: what’s the craziest lie you’ve ever told and gotten away with? Did you ever fess up? Share your stories below.
And a sidenote: A big thanks to Kimberley Vlaminck whose tattoo mishap has made us look like model children. Whenever we eff up from here on out, we can always say, “Ok, so maybe I backed into a mailbox, but at least I didn’t tat my face!”
