Urban myths people trot out as their own true stories

    I'm talking about those 'Ah EVERYONE knows its true' comments. Like the little girl who is making her communion and had a tiara with a light up Jesus on it, which she illuminated upon having communion. I've heard this 'true story' so many times, including once in an Irish Times article, yet no one knows which church it happened in, and as its trotted out every year, you'd think people would cop on that they are just rehashing a non-story. Every year around communion there's those stories about the fake tan, limos and thousand euro outfits, yet I've never met or actually know of parents who do this. But there's always stories about it doing the rounds, with the 'Ah I KNOW its true' brigade.

    Please share your non truths.
