    At the rate you've described I probably couldn't hold my tongue.
    LOL, good idea!!!

    My DH is a bit of a compulsive liar...partly due to poor self esteem and partly for self or others protection (ie. grew up lying to his mum to protect her as I guess he felt responsible for her depression).

    Drives me nuts sometimes though...the things he lies about are often so inconsequencial, I'm like, why not just tell the truth? Other things he lies about end up being more detrimental than the truth and after the fact I say 'why? If you had told me then we would now be better off because of xyz'.

    He does realise its a problem though but its very hard for him to stop - he's been doing it his whole life.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they are big money wasters and don't have any money to do these things!! Soon they'll be making up excuses as to why they couldn't do this or that.
    From someone that's lived on the GC all my life they certainly wouldn't be getting a 3 bed penthouse or a basic apartment for that amount.

    yeah I know. We are always at the GC so know what goes for what usually... I said to my dh that they must really have a listen to themselves because lately especially their talk just gets more ridiculous.. but it's not just that, it's EVERYTHING... everything is just so blown out of proportion, you don't know what to believe.
