A Lying Formula

| Romantic | June 24, 2015

(I’m behind the bar on a slow Sunday afternoon. A young couple, who look like they’re on their first date come in, get drinks, then go play pool. As it’s quiet I can hear everything they say:)

Guy: “Yeah, I work for the Ferrari F1 team. Currently working on the engines back at base.”

Girl: “Oh, wow. Bet you see a lot.”

(This goes on for the whole game, and I notice he’s being very inconsistent with his story. They come up for another drink.)

Me: “You say you work for the Scuderia?”

Guy: “Who?”

Me: “Ferrari.”

Guy: “Oh, yeah. It’s a high-pressure job.”

Me: “Bet that must be a h*** of a commute to Italy everyday to get to their base? Have you met il Commendatore yet?”

Guy: *looking worried* “Er, not yet, we’re having lunch next week?”

Me: “Wow. Well that will be an experience considering he died nearly 30 years ago.”

Girl: *to guy* “So you’ve been lying to me?!”

Guy: “Umm…”

Me: “Mate, if you’re going to lie, make sure you know what you’re lying about!”

(The girl stormed out with the guy chasing after her trying to apologise.)
