    Ridiculously funny story...to me at least

    So one of my employees noticed my car outside and asked if it was mine, I said yes. This sparked a conversation about sports bikes and cars. He then started bragging about how he just bought a hayabusa and how his old Camaro with an LS2 does 9's...right away I doubted him, but I still gave him the benefit of a doubt. I asked him what his trap speed is (I had to explain what that even meant), and he replied 190Click here to enlarge! Haha I told him it was impossible, but he said he would provide proof. I really dislike people like him

    Haha. Well on the plus side you only have two possible options
    1. You get to meet a world record holding racer
    2. You get to hold that insane fish story over his head until he quits

    This is a wonderful situation.

    You are his boss, you can ask him for proof and now you are essentially testing his credibility. If he comes out a liar, and he will; he will look bad and you don't have to give him a raise.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    These are the people I also dislike. They don't even know the basics yet think they are experts.

    This is a little different but back in 2001 when I had an E46 M3 I was getting some suspension work done and a guy comes in to the shop with his new 911 turbo and starts bragging about his Porsche and talking down on my BMW blah blah blah. Well, whatever, I say I really like your 996 and hope to have one some day.

    He replies back with, "It's a 911, you shouldn't talk when you can't get the Porsche basics right." I look at him, the shop owner, and just tried to keep the vomit from coming out.
