Wow, he sounds like two guys at my job:
One of them says he practices with the musicians down the road. I later found out that these musicians moved out five years ago. He also said he is a substitute teacher. I do know that this is true... however, he claims to have substitute taught all the foremen 35 and under, as well as several city employees... including ones who didn't even GO to elementary/middle/high school here!
He said my last name looked familiar and then said he knew a guy with the same last name as me. He told me that since my last name is not all that common, we must be related. I said that all my Florida relatives are dead now, and informed him that I have living relatives in Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and California. He said, "YEAH! This guy was from Louisiana! He had one of those funny Cajun type accents..."
I just let him talk.
The other one? He'll reiterate something he watched the previous night on, say, Discovery Health or the History Channel, then talk about it the next day while pretending he was either in the situation, knew someone who was, or had relatives who made obscure history. He'll recite all the facts and make it sound very believable, but since I LOVE Discovery Health and the History Channel, I've called him out on his BS more than a few times. Now, he has nothing to talk about with me.
