I lied about having a mentally challenged sister to prove a point.
I feel really guilty about this, but it just slipped out.
Part of my job is to help people navigate online forms and such. Monday, this particularly annoying parent called claiming that there is an issue with the server, our site, anything but user error. I told her to log on and I would walk her through it. She says, “I swear, there is something wrong with your website! I know I could do this. It’s not me, it’s your website. I am NOT completely retarded!” I replied, “my mentally retarded sister actually completed this a few minutes ago, so it’s not that, either.” Silence on her end and I walked her through it. Turns out that she just cannot follow simple instructions.
I have a mentally handicapped cousin, but my sisters are fine. I feel guilty for telling a lie, although I hate when people say anything along the lines of: oh that’s/you’re/whatever’s retarded.
