This is a question Fantasists

Eddie Spunkbubble says: I used to know a sad case who fancied himself as a bit of a 007 and bragged that he always carried a loaded 9mm pistol in his attache case "just in case". Overheard by an off-duty copper, he was asked to make good on his claim. A packed lunch, red face and a stern warning "not to act the twat" and he never did it again. Tell us of Walter Mitty types.

My friend's older brother is going out with a complete raving mental fantasist
The wheel is spinning, but that hamster is DEAD. She is in her mid 50's and has been off work sick for about the last 20 years. Consequently she has absolutely no money and lives in a council flat with her 80 year old mother.

The first inkling that all was really not that well came when she started buying my friend's brother expensive presents. But somehow, they never materialised. He had no idea how the royal mail could lose so many items. When she bought him a motorbike and it crashed on the way to his house, even he started to ask questions. So she upped the stakes a bit. A relative she had never heard of before died, and left her a house! In Wales! A big country house! She was going to take him there for the weekend!

On the day, the car wouldn't start. The next weekend, she lost the keys. The weekend after that, the roof leaked. Finally my friend, who can't believe her brother was swallowing this, and who is a mortgage lender, asked to see the deeds. The next day, the woman produces a piece of a4 paper, bearing one line at the top: 123 Crewe road, Wales. And a Cheshire postcode.

Gradually the stories about the cottage in Wales faded. Then something real happened: sadly her mother went into hospital and a routine op went wrong and she died. There was some clinical negligence, and she was genuinely waiting for a payout. But somehow the nhs had agreed to pay out £8,000,000 for the death of a woman in her 80's. Er.... So my friend's brother and the fantasist were eagerly discussing what they were going to spend their cash on. A big house of course. Sports cars. A cruise. And so on.

But after a few months, no sign of the cash. When she was questioned about progress, she said that the judge had telephoned her personally to apologise about how long it was taking and had upped the award to £10M. A month later, the law firm rang and said they were going to pay out of their own client account... Yeah because law firms do that and stay in business.... So the pair of them started going on viewings of multi-million pound houses. Fuck knows what the owners/agents thought when that pair of clowns rocked up. last I heard, the matter was with a higher court, and was at £15m.

He got pissed on by a tiger at the zoo once. A proper Tom cat spray.

Complete non sequitur, but I bloody love that story. How unlucky can you get?
