Pretty Little Liars

Since being a Navy Wife, I have noticed so many things. And one thing I have recently really started to notice is that 'girls' lie.

I guess after recent events, I have started paying more attention to what people say, and how trusting I am to people. I'm just a bit more observant.

It's crazy the things I have heard lies about. From "Husband's falling overboard", money and assets, to husband's rank and everything in between.

It's really pathetic because there are just some things you just DON'T lie about- or well you shouldn't. I hate lies. I cannot and will not be friends with someone who is going to lie to me, especially to my face. Facebook, is the easiest way to catch a liar. If you just read posts. You will read of how "someone's husband is almost an officer" and then another post where their husband is still an airman, or seaman... Definitely no where near being an officer. Why lie about something so silly? Especially when you're going to put all the info out there to be proven a liar.

Even worse, WHY would someone lie about their husband almost dying on the ship? It's one thing for it to almost happen but then to contradict yourself in future conversations and then it not being put out on the ship that there was a "Man overboard".. all I can do is shake my head.

It all comes down to people wanting attention.

I'm just amazed at the lies people are saying. I understand that Deployment is terribly hard for some... but lying isn't a way to get GOOD attention. It attracts negative attention.


  1. Finally! I've been waiting for this rant to happen from someone!

  2. Nice Blog!! and I agree...i've noticed a lot of that myself and i just became a Navy Wife in October.

  3. You have NO idea how much I am clapping right now after reading this. Great post, and so very very very true! It really baffles me!

  4. Agreed, this is one of the biggest pet peeves of the girls I've met in the military, and I'm not even a wife.

  5. Great post! I too have no idea why women or people in general would lie about such things, makes no sense at all!!
