Once a soldier asked his commanding officer for a day's leave to attend his sister's wedding. The officer asked him to wait outside the door for a few minutes while he considered the request. The
officer then called the soldier back in and said, "You are a liar. I've
just phoned your sister and she told me she's already married." "Well, sir, you're an even bigger liar," the soldier replied, "because I don't even have a sister."
