Dumbest Lies People's Parents Told Them

Parents tell their kids some pretty absurd lies. And it's not even like that's something bad parents do. There are so many mild but weird things we were told that we just ended up believing. Sure, there was the classic "it's illegal to turn on the light in the car" but there was so much more than that. There were long lost cousins, jokes we just never got and impossible rules. Sure, kids are kind of stupid and weird, but this one was more on the parents.

Husband Sells Wife-Made Sandwiches For Dirty Burger Money

In what he probably thought was the big-brain scheme of the century, this guy was selling sandwiches his wife made for him at work so he could buy fast food. It's a little sad, because clearly if they're in demand, the sandwiches themselves are really good. Is this too ridiculous and petty? Is it a massive betrayal of trust? It's definitely something, so the internet judged. And how hard is it for this guy to make his own sandwiches? For another relationship food quarrel, here's a picky eater husband who demanded fancier meals.

Things from People's Childhoods They Later Realized Were Weird

Everybody's family is a little weird in some way, but as a kid, you don't know any better. This leads to most of us having an awkward moment later on with friends, a scene along the lines of "hold on, not everyone's family has one day of the month where their dad eats as many cans of tuna as possible and then comes over and breathes on everyone?" or "wait a second, my mom always told me the blue parking spaces up front were for people in the very busy mom club?" Life is full of discovery. At least it's a little better than people later realizing something was illegal.

We all want to be seen as gracious, but what happens when the things were are given just suck? Sure, you don't want to destroy the confidence of a child, but also who gives someone terrible cake made by a child and expects them to like it? When is a gesture worth lying for?

Cringeworthy Times People Made Up Ridiculous Lies

There are a few reasons to pretend that you said a perfectly timed one-liner and then roundhouse kicked a fellow Starbucks customer in the face. One reason is that you're looking to lie to the world in exchange for some totally undeserved attention. Another might be that you want to imagine that you're the type of person who knows martial arts. Social media lets people express themselves, and sometimes the selves people try to express aren't that great. People also use the internet to make up crap about their intelligence, like these cringe-worthy brain-lords who think they're total geniuses.

Son Discovers Mom Lied About Allergies to Keep Him on Strict Diet

Modern life gives us a huge amount of liberty over our diets, and some diets are definitely more healthy than others. Often parents are trying to keep their kids safe and healthy as best they can, but it seems like lying to your kid about a life-threatening allergy isn't the right way to go about it. It's kinda reminiscent of these vegans who were called fake because they feed their cat meat. Sometimes the exact opposite of this happens, like when this Tumblr user realized they actually had allergies.

You never forget a stupid reason for being punished. School is a jungle, and it can lead to what people describe as their school's incident, and can continue on to awkward moments at school reunions.
