That's pretty damn low to use a relative's death like that as an excuse just to not have to be with you for a day. And was he foolish enough to think you'd never find out later? I'm not a complete fan of "dump him" but I don't really like your boyfriend OP

6, the funeral could have been in the morning, and the mom and her mom could have both gone to the funeral and made plans to have lunch together afterwards. The boyfriend might have just wanted some time to himself for the day.

Yeah, I have (had) about five people in my life that I would consider "grandmas" so I don't think it's entirely impossible for it to be someone else, but if not then that is really pathetic for someone to lie about that.

My parents are still together. My grandparents on my dad's side got divorced, so he remarried and there's two. My grandma on my mothers side died and so my step-grandpa remarried, that's four. And I just always considered my great grandmother a grandma because I don't like to make people feel too old. :P

I'm guessing that, since OP immediately thought her boyfriend was lying, there is no other reasonable explanation for his mother and grandmother having lunch. The FML also said that she saw "his 'dead' grandmother," so that tells me that it was that particular grandmother that he told her had died.

44- My mother was in foster care and had two different families, after her father remarried. That's four. Then there's my dad's mom and his stepmom. Boom, 6 grandmas.

Exactly what I was gonna say, but if it's not, she should really dump him ... cause if he doesn't think she'll be with him enough to find out then she shouldn't be with him.

77- What? OP didn't say what their reaction was. Also there was no mention of OP's boyfriend spending time with his family, as it was her boyfriend's mother who was with the grandma. Did we read two different things?

I never understood it either. I wouldn't doubt that 90% of lies told are completely unnecessary. Most of the time, the truth just isn't that terrible. Lives would be so much simpler if people weren't afraid to just be honest.

If he can't tell her that he doesn't want to see her and has to make up a lie, especially such an awful one using his grandmother like that, I would say he is only stringing her along because he is getting something from her. It's not a relationship or a future though. Kick him to the curb OP

The good news is that he can only use this excuse one more time. Then he'll have to go to dead uncles, aunts, cousins, pets, etc. Or he could stop, you know, being a lying fuckwad.

Why has no one yet asked why the heck she wasn't going to the funeral? By saying that she bumped into them this suggests that she knew them and therefore had some sort of relationship with his family, therefore she should have been there. It is totally shit that he lied but I can't help thinking that if you said that you would go with him that you would have realised that he was a dick in a less humiliating way
