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 Tale of Kaol and the Rad-Proof Coat
In my first year at university I lived in a hall of residence, sharing a kitchen and bathroom with a variety of characters.

One of them was an English student called Ron*, who was a lovely chap, but was rather gullible.

He was fond of going out to the Union, geting drunk and having a laugh, as we all were, but as the year wore on and my work-load grew, his seemed to stay low.
This meant he'd be out on the piss, more or less every night.

One evening he knocked on my door, asking if he could borrow my lab coat.
I asked why.
The conversation went as follows:

"I'm going out tonight, it's Doctors and Nurses night."

"Oh... Sure, just don't get it wrecked or lose it, it's thirty quid for a new one."

"Thirty quid? Why so expensive?"

"Well... You know we do experiments in the lab... Some of those involve radiation, so these coats have threads of lead woven into them."

"Shit... Really?"

"Yeah, look, if I hold it to the light can you see it glisten slightly?"

"Oh yeah... Wow!"

"Anyway, look, hold it, see how it's heavier than you'd expect?"

"Yeah, it's a bit heavy... Thanks, I'll bring it back tomorrow!"

"No problem, have fun!"

And off he merrily went, telling everyone he met that night about the exciting rad-proof coat he was wearing.

*Not his name at all.
