It doesn't involve a lie, but I have another story about her. We had a very emergent patient (heart attack) that I needed her help with. After a few minutes I finally found her coming out of the bathroom, watching her tablet with her earbuds in. She had been camped out on the stool, watching videos. She apologized while I made it clear how gross that was.

Ouch. That hits kind of close to home. This made me realize that my "Seinfeld" memories are almost 25 years old.

Work was slow. I was watching a movie with my headphones in. From out of nowhere she strikes up a conversation with me about her 4 year old niece. The niece got into her mother's purse and ate 20 antacid, thinking them to be sweet tarts. Why? Why does she do this shit? All I said in response was that didn't sound like something that would happen. I really didn't want to get into it with her. If did, I would have raised questions about how a 4 year old even opens a bottle of antacid. I could have questioned why the child continued eating them after the first one confirmed that they weren't candy but instead were chalky medicine.

hmm, in adding the last story to my file, I noticed a few entries I failed to post here:

5/8/2016
Her husband once intentionally made the battery in his phone explode to see what would happen

5/9/2016
Her grandfather once made and lost a $20k bet. He never won.

5/10/2016
She transferred a patient to Mayo clinic (I know this is false because earlier that day I had to add Mayo to our software system we use for transfers)

I love these stories. I get the feeling this woman has a disorder and I shouldn't be laughing at her. But then I remember that I'm an insensitive bastard and it's all OK. :D

What he said.

Say, does she add, "that's the ticket!" after a whopper?

Not a bad idea, but the same part of my brain that doesn't allow me to enjoy reality tv kicks in and desires I spend as little time as possible interacting with her

This one began with coworker looking over my shoulder at my laptop.

Her- Is that Skyrim? I love the Elder Scrolls games

Me- Yeah, I've been playing it since Elder Scrolls 3

Her- Do you like them?

Me- Do you think I'd play games I don't enjoy?

Her- (here we go) Well, my husband often plays games he doesn't enjoy.

Me- (deep breath) that makes no sense.

Her- Well, he sometimes plays games he doesn't particularly like just to have something to do

I don't respond. A few minutes pass.

Her- He does a lot of reviews so he has to play even the ones he doesn't like.

I still don't respond. I'm guessing she's dying to have me ask who he does reviews for or continue the conversation in some way. I don't bite.

A few minutes later she asks a hypothetical question about what we should do if x scenario comes up at work. I've noticed this is one of her go to ways to generate conversations. It works with almost everyone but me.

OMG

A NEW LOW!

She told a coworker that one time in Canada she met a set of twins named lemonjello and limejello! This was after he referenced those names as an urban legend! Man, I don't know if I feel sorry for her or if I have to just sit back and applaud the size of her balls.

My daughter's ex-bf was very similar. Would just make shit up. I usually just ignored it, but there were times when simple logic just didn't fit and I'd call him on it. It was fun seeing his face when I did. It's like a panic mode kicked in.

Recently, while gaming online, I've been in a chat party with a a fella that is a complete stranger to the truth. Here are some of his chart toppers:

- he holds a black belt in 4 different forms of martial arts, and is developing his own form. (this resulted in my mentioning the Scottish martial arts form "Fu-Kugh")
- there is a contract out on his life, by his ex-girlfriend's mob family, but no one knows where he lives. (...which caused our mutual acquaintance to ask, "don't you live with your mom?". he does.)
- he's a very talented tattoo artist (sends out a pic of "his girlfriend" complete w/ tattoo work he had just completed. (a short google search revealed the same image on pinterest, dated 5 years ago.)

It's really sad that someone feels the need to inflate their ego with such obvious fabrications, but it's hard not to be amused.

Last night, she showed up with a swollen upper lip and missing one of her front teeth. Overcome with curiosity, I had to ask. She claims she tripped over her cat, fell, and hit the kitchen counter face first- knocking her tooth out in the process. You know what? This time I believe her.

Geez. I almost feel sorry for her. Awwwww. What's the matter? You couldn't come up with a good lie on the spot?

She claims she went to grade school with someone last named titty committee (spelled titycumity.) Before I knew what was happening I told her I didn’t believe her. She said “it’s true.” I replied that I was not going to believe her until she showed me a yearbook. Her feelings looked hurt. A few moments later she was busy googling something but she must not have found anything because that was the last she said of it. If she produces a yearbook I’m fully prepared to eat crow.

It's now been two weeks since I wrote the above paragraph and she has yet to bring it up again. No crow in my belly.

She bought her husband an XBOX One. She was at her sister’s house. At 3AM husband put the Xbox in their car which was parked in the garage. (should have asked why her car was in her sister’s garage.) The garage door was left open and in the 6 minutes the husband was inside, someone stole the Xbox. She saw someone walking away down the street but they didn’t notice the Xbox was missing until later. They called the police and filed a report.

I brought in pizza for dinner. She says “that smells good.” I told her Dominos is half price this week. She says the Sonic on south side (where she lives) has half price corn dogs after 5 so that’s what she brought. I told her that I think sonic does half price burgers after 5 on Tuesdays, too. She tells me that she knows that, but the hamburger line was too long so she got corn dogs instead. (what? Hamburger line? Sonic is a drive in. Even if you use the drive through and not a car stall, how is a hamburger line even longer?) I stay silent. She takes this as a sign to embellish. She adds that her husband was already there and had been waiting for hamburgers for quite a while. I still have no words for her.
