This is a question My most gullible moment

Someone once told me that gullible wasn't in the dictionary and I went, "yeah yeah ha ha" but when they were gone that didn't stop me checking. What was YOUR most gullible moment? Zero points for buying an icon on b3ta.

The Grandfathers War - how high can you go?
Back in infant school, we were sat in a circle and had to tell how many grandpas and grandmas we had. Because I went to a foreign language school, I had no idea what was going on. Some of the kids sitting nearby were trying to trick me into making a fool out of myself. Instead of a measly one or two, they were whispering that they had a thousand grandpas. This triggered my competitive spirit and I kept whispering that I also had unfeasibly large numbers of grandpas. They responded by raising the stakes in the Grandfathers War and I did likewise. I had no idea of the concept of grandparents but just believed that bigger is better.

Of course, when the teacher asked me, I said I had five thousand grandpas. The class exploded with laughter and the teacher got angry and shouted at me. Had I learned my lesson? No. When it came round to grandmas, I also said five thousand and the same consequences ensued. God, I hated that school!

Length? Let's just say I'm glad they never gave me advice about chatting up girls.

*sigh* Another QOTW I don't have a lot of good stories for...
I had three older sisters who pulled every prank in the book on me, so I grew up a bit skeptical and cynical.

However, I've pulled a few on others in my time, so maybe I'll post some of those stories instead...

I remember when I was all new to the internets and chatting on IRC when some blaggard told me to type in a load of code that he messaged me, because "something great will happen". So I did, and had to leave the net cafe I was in as slyly as possible.

*Cringeworthy but I'll share*
Many moons ago I was shagging this guy at work who had a girlfriend. After 9 months of fooling around here and there he tells me he wants to stop seeing me so he can be faithful to his girlfriend. I was a little put out but relented as I thought it was about time that he tried to be a faithful boyfriend, (weird I know), and we were never going to be in a proper relationship.

One month later I found out he's been doing the horizontal two-step with the new office girl.

(Pearoast I think)

My ex's dad told me that they were had bred a cross between sheep and giraffes at a farm in Shropshire. I believed him and we went out on our bikes through the lanes of rural Shropshire to look at the 'shiraffe'.

It was a llama.

I was out for a walk in the forest, when i found a male cow trapped in a ditch.

That was my Gully-Bull moment.

I briefly felt a pang of guilt
There was a young girl where I used to work who spent the day obviously upset about something, you know little tears and sniffles every now and then, kept running to the loo for ages. I asked what was up and she told me the courts had ordered that her pet dog had to be destroyed because it would not stop barking and the neighbours had complained. Apparently they had tried everything, muzzles, drugs, allsorts but the dog would not stop. Without taking a moment to think about it I told her to cheer up because I knew how to stop the dog barking, and explained that all she needed was a tub of margarine. She looked at me with hope in her eyes as I explained that if she examined her dogs sphincter when it was barking she would notice that it clenches with every bark. All she needed to do was smear the dogs ass with the marge and it would not be able to "get a grip" therefore would not be able to bark. I added weight to the theory by adding that it had to be margarine as the dog was likely to lick it's ass, so whatever she used had to be edible. She immediately left work, bought a tub of flora and scuttled off home. Next day, even more upset I asked again what was wrong and she told me that the margarine thing hadn't worked despite the fact that she had "even put some inside".

I did the "gullible isn't in the dictionary" trick on a girl many years ago.
The next day she phoned me and said she'd looked for it and it wasn't there.
I believed her.

At school
Someone once told me that his family owned 24 cats. I announced this to the class.

It was less than entirely true.

I hated school.

Once, in an English Lit lesson
I told a girl that Leonato calls Hero a "ho-bag slut" in Much Ado About Nothing. She responded with and earnest "Really?!" and I came back with "No, retard. It was the 16th century." She was well a mong.

My penis is inversely sized to this post. So huge. Unconventionally huge.

The NHS seems to think I'm pretty damn gullible
I got a letter yesterday inviting me to visit the hospital so that they could shove some long, thin needles into my arm muscles to test my nerve function.

The letter says, and I quote, that this might be 'uncomfortable'.

I fail to see how having needles inserted into your muscles could possibly be described as merely 'uncomfortable'. I guess we'll see...

I was a child at the time
So when my Dad, who Knew Everything in the World, told me that the trains going from Edinburgh to Fife went over the Forth Bridge by way of the big "humps", I believed him.

For far too many years.

Well my friend reckoned that you could get your self off by deepthroating yourself by slumping into a pile of tires and going for it.

If by 'deepthroat' you mean 'herniated', and 'get off', 'excruciating agony', then I guess I wasn't that gullible.

In my defence, I was blonde at the time...
A friend once told me that he had tickets for every date of Hanson's reunion tour.

He was so flabbergasted that I believed him that, when I said 'Really?!', he just shook his head and walked away.
