Fudgie Posted September 3, 2017 Share Posted September 3, 2017 K (boyfriend) and I went to see his family recently. Despite some really bad mishaps (no water for part of the visit, no working toilet, kids had GI virus, then we woke up to parents GONE for hours and we had to watch the kids, etc.) well, it was an okay, typical visit I guess. Lots of Netflix. The night before we left, we told his brother/SIL that we would leave in the morning. SIL is very pregnant and we told her we wouldn't wake her up cause she wanted to sleep in. She agreed, cool.. the morning we left, we said bye to the brother (he left early for work) and we packed our things up. The kids came out, 5 y/o female and 2 y/o male. The girl had dressed herself. We had a small conversation with them and they wanted to watch one of their favorite movies so I got set it up for them on Netflix. We told them we had to go. They asked questions, we answered. It was understood we were going and it would They hugged us goodbye, waved goodbye, and were sitting quietly on the couch when we left. We locked the doorknob behind us. Okay so.. That evening, when we were back in our city, I gets an angry/alarmed text from his brother. He says that when he got home from work that evening, his daughter burst into tears and told him that we left and never said goodbye or hugged her. She was apparently crying and yelling at it. Said that we ignored her and just left and never said goodbye. His wife had slept in and therefore couldn't verify anything. He believed his daughter. This is an outright lie. K set him straight but I am alarmed. Why would she lie like that? Is that normal for a 5 year old? I'm concerned that this is a sign that she be devious and will lie about bigger things in the future. Oh, and before anyone asks, we don't think that the brother lied to us. He is kind of dense and couldn't lie his way out of a cardboard box. That's just how he is. Link to comment
