    So the other day at work one of the delivery guys comes in and starts up a conversation with an older lady I work with. I'm within 5 feet so I can hear everything they are saying. Conversation starts out fairly normal, then I hear him mention he is an MMA fighter. This catches my interest, so I ask him where he trains and he lists a few different places he bounces around between. I tell him I train also and mention the gym I go to, which in this city is fairly well known, but he reacts as if he's never heard of it (ok, that's possible). He immediately responds that he is 28-2 overall with a 9-0 record as a pro. At this point my skepticism is triggered, but I let it go. He continues to talk to the old lady and I go back to pretending to work. Few minutes later in the conversation he says he used to play football.....in the NFL. He goes on and on about how he played for 2 seasons for the Cowboys and 1 for the Cardinals before retiring. He said he was drafted as a QB but ended up playing Free Safety. He goes on to say that he was shot in the knee outside a nightclub with Michael Irvingand his knee recovered with surgery and drinking milk. At this point I excuse myself to go to the bathroom. While I'm away, I do a quick google search of his name...and I come up with nothing. I can't find anything confirming any of the stories, and I feel dumb for even looking at this point. So now that I've had a chance to reflect on how bizarre it is that a person would lie about something so easy to verify, I'm wondering why? Is he hiding a terrible past? Does he get a kick out of telling lies? Or does he actually believe that he did all of this stuff?

    Has anybody ever encountered a person like this, if so what was the result? Did they end up being harmless, or should I alert everyone we are dealing with a crazy person?

    TL;DR
    Delivery guy shows up
    Claims he is an ex-nfl player/9-0 pro mma fighter
    None of this is verifiable via the internet
    Am I dealing with a crazy person?

    My old friend was a pathological liar, and master manipulator, but i could see through it because i knew him so well. But ive personally wirnessed him make up lies on the spot many times, and he would make up lies in situations where it was completely unnecessary.

    He ended up becoming addicted to oxys and i cut ties when i caught him stealing change from my car.

    I mean I never said anything to the lady, but I'm just wondering if I should for her safety.

    you sound like a good friend. his life was obv falling over a cliff so you dump him over literal chump change.

    you had np with him constantly lying but taking quarters out of your car for oxy $ is where you draw the line??

    Yes, I knew one back in highschool, he used them as excuses on why he didn't have his ISU report or why he didn't make exams. They eventually more ridiculous overtime.
