My biker coworker always seems to tell too tall stories about his commute to work. Sometimes they are just somewhat unbelievable, not in the sense that they are something out of a james bond movie, but they (the stories) always seem to paint him in a good light, or always seem to work in his favor. It's as if he is trying to get attention by bragging or embellishing the situation. I think he may be suffering from Munchausen syndrome
I'd tell you the stories, and you'd also say, yah right, sure, but he might be a regular visitor to this forum and I don't want to give away his or my identity.
There are just too many stories to be believable. I rarely have anything to say about my motorcyle commute if at all, yet he has at least one or two a day.
Most of his stories are about confrontations with cagers on the road. These arguements are always painting him as the scorned, yet reluctant hero, trying to defend his right to the road. Other times, he sees himself as better than others, including me with my bike. (not a big or powerfull as his).
This morning he told me a story that I found just too fake to be believable, I just said, uh huh..... and walked away.
I could just confront him and say. "Yah know, I think your stories are just bullshit, I don't believe you", but then he'd get all hissy fit like, and prepare to defend his story and at the same time try to berate me and my bike.
