Hello everyone. I haven't been on MTF in ages, but this thread was brought to my attention by someone I speak to off the forum. I'm glad to see Johnny posting in here and facing the music like a man, but I want to add just a little bit more information for the historical record. Most of it comes from either my own private messages with him or from the old Perv thread, which may be hard to find since it had to be broken up.
Yes, I knew about the infant son and girlfriend and the car accident, and the oddly convenient death. I don't remember his mother being killed though, and he's mentioned her about 100 times since then. At the time JG and I were exchanging private messages about sharing taped tennis matches or whatever and I felt so bad for him because he was constantly talking about how very broke he was. Imagine my surprise when he went to Europe about 6 months later on some school trip. It didn't add up, but I didn't really care because I didn't follow his posts or his life that closely. (Does any of this sound familiar Johnny?) There was also a trip to Puerto Rico in there somewhere, maybe right after graduation? Can't remember, just remember being confused about how broke he was or wasn't.
Then the Perv thread got started and an unofficial contest seems to have begun between JG and MTF's most notorious patho liar ever. We won't talk about her, but there is more to the 'I was stabbed at McDonald's' story than that one post. For a while leading up to that, Johnny regaled us with the story of his escapades with "Rafaella" the perfect girlfriend who got naked with him about an hour after they met, if I remember correctly. They were perfect together and the sex, which he wrote about in great detail in the perv thread, was hotter than every great movie you had ever seen in your life, combined. But then Johnny came home one day and discovered Rafaella having DP sex with 2 guys. D'oh! She tried to explain it away that they were just filming a porno because she was curious what that would be like (can't remember her age, but pretty sure JG was still in high school). I think it was about this time that "Rafa" told JG she was pregnant, and it was his baby. When he told us that Rafa was pregnant, he seemed to completely forget that this had happened to him before.
So a little while passes, and then the McDonald's stabbing/shooting happens. "Rafa" had a jealous ex boyfriend who was a gang member or something. So Rafa was at McDonald's, the ex shows up, she gets scared and calls Johnny, Johnny arrives just in time to get involved but darn the luck, the gun goes off, ricochets off of something and hits Rafa in just the right place for her to lose the baby. Don't remember what happened to Rafa after that, he stopped mentioning her. I looked all over the internet, never found any news articles about such a dramatic shooting/stabbing at McDonalds (wasn't surprised, many members of the perv thread knew it was all fiction). By the way, we had a lot of fun speculating why he chose the name 'Rafaella' for his fake, perfect girlfriend. What exactly was he working out of his system with that one?
Johnny, do you remember any of this? I do not like liars, not at all, but I cannot hate on Johnny for what he has done (and possibly continues to do). He doesn't tell these stories to hurt people, or to be malicious. He came back to this thread and faced the music, so maybe all this silliness really is just growing pains. (Unlike that other one who left MTF, but is still working it in other places on the internet tubes, hurting people).
Verd was right though, an apology would be nice.
