    I have an in-law whose daughter has a problem with telling the truth, and is telling her mother that she was working as a FF in Broward County, FL, but was laid off due to the economy. MY BS filter is on red alert. Who here would know if they have had any FF layoffs?
    She's asking for $ and her mother is trying to get to the bottom of the story.

    If FF means Firefighter. I am aware that its hard to get on with a department right now.I know some currently employed and some just finishing the EMT training and its tough out there.

    If the daughter is working as a FF, (fire fighter), then her employment is a matter of public record. Find out by calling up Broward County.

    Did she claim to actually work for Broward County, or was she working in one of the many Municipalities within Broward? According to some of the Firefighters I know, there have been no actual layoffs at Broward Fire Rescue, though they were threatened last year.

    Hopefully not the hot blonde from the show!

    To the OP, sounds like BS to me. History of lies, and you got the gut feeling she's a damn dirty liar in this situation, go with the gut.

    That is what I was telling her mom also. (BTW, yes FF was firefighter).

    Mom falls for just about every story.

    BSO laying off 30? Wow... I almost moved there two years or so ago and guess it is a good thing I did not.. I'd be the FNG and on the top of the lay off list...
