It'd Be So Easy, Too

These stories are in no way a strategy guide to follow, a map to abide by, or rules to success. No, they are simple musings from people who've thought up the best ways to sneak their way into any job they'd want.

Absolutely do not follow the answers to Reddit user, u/NBLSS's, question. Seriously. What high level job do you think you could lie your way into with no experience and no one would notice?

Not Lies. False Truths.

Not sure if high level but "Paranormal Investigator".

Lying with conviction and charisma is one of the most important qualities one can have in that line of work.

Someone Who Actually Did It

[rebelmouse-image 18347491 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lied my way into a tech repair job.

Asked my new boss if he could run me over their operating procedure with an example on the bench and apart from putting my pc together had no real experience at all. But I watched and learned and asked for lots of second opinions in my first month.

Never got noticed and got extra work from him using my software experience. I still freelance software solutions for him and his clients today hahah.

Get The Team Together

[rebelmouse-image 18347612 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm a pretty good cook, but never worked in catering professionally, other than catering a few friends parties.

One day a small but posh cafe near my kids school put a sign saying they needed a head chef who made "foodie" foods rather than classically made food etc.

I walked in, spoke with one half of the owners (the wife ran the retail part, the Italian classically trained soon-to-be-ex-husband ran the kitchen but was leaving soon). Told her I'm possibly what she's looking for, would she like a demonstration etc. This was on a Thursday, she asked me to come back on the Monday with some dishes.

Long story short, came back Monday and had the job by Thursday. Redsigined the menu, ran a team of 5, put all in place, everyone loved the menu and food...

...and 7 weeks after starting I found that they didn't have a license to sell food. I bounced within 10mins of finding out. All in all, I was on the job 8 weeks running stuff I've never done before. Proud achievement but when I asked legit chef friends about it (who were way jealous I'd done that without any training or anything) they told me that at the very least I could be named in documents if the shop got in trouble for selling food.

America is quite a place.

There is so much to see, perhaps too much.

And as much as there is to see there is a ton not to see.

Just like any country and continent, there are skippable places.

And skippable isn't a bad thing.

People Share The Most Insane Lies Their Significant Other Ever Told Them

It's never fun to be lied to, particularly by your significant other.

Sometimes we discover that they were lying to us in order to surprise us for our birthday or anniversary, making the dishonesty easily forgiven.

In other instances, however, their lies were all to cover up something much less celebratory.

For better or worse, some people's partners are very convincing liars.

Others however are simply unable to keep a secret, and their stories or explanations to cover things up only make things worse.

Getting struck by lighting, winning the lottery, meeting someone else with your exact name who also shares your birthday.

For better or worse, the likelihood of any of these things happening to you is incredibly small.

And yet, there are still a handful of lucky, or unlucky, people who have experienced one, or all, of the above.

Even if the odds are against us by a significant margin, some people will go through an experience which they would never in a million years dream would happen to them.

Leaving them with quite some stories to tell.
