I met this dude on tinder and asked what his last name was.. he told me, then replied “ you doing a little background check? You might find out I’m a murderer, just ignore that 😘 “ okay so a good sense of humor.. well I googled him and he was a murderer. https://t.co/II55zBGfNj

In college I fell out of my bunk bed and broke both of my legs and one arm. Years later on a date, I made a joke about being clumsy and the dude told me I couldn’t compare to this woman his EMT brother helped once … who fell out of her bunk and broke all the bones. It was me. https://t.co/TQSEwXK4rw

One time I saw Samuel L. Jackson at an airport and he saw me and my cousin hovering around trying to gain the courage to ask him for a photo and then he came over to us and said "Y'all motherfuckers want a photo?"
And it was everything. https://t.co/bipmioXtWp

In college a friend found an ID of a dude over 21 who looked just like me. I used it like a charm for months. Then I went to a club and a bouncer starting asking me what’s my address and birthday and shit. I finally said “dude it’s me” and he replied “no dude, it’s ME”. It was. https://t.co/gUW03MxUc3

I was responsible for the exorcism of a tree while in elementary school. I wrote letters in the voice of a demon and hid them in the tree, and convinced classmates they were real. My catholic school, unfortunately, also thought they were real and the dioceses got involved. https://t.co/N8PuxvlAUw

Once accidentally kidnapped a drunk man who was trying to get into his own home. Saw him slumped by the road, coaxed him into the cab to ‘take him home safely’ and ignored his slurry protests. Some 30 mins of confusing directions later and we… end up at exactly the same place. https://t.co/cwj43Fig8g
