A Guide to Bunbarying

By: Matthew Gilmore

What is Bunburying?

Bunburying is when someone takes on a second identity to get out of doing something they don't want to do.

Step 1: Create your second identity

Make a new name for yourself.

Step 2: Make a plan

Plan your days carefully. You don't want to have to be in two places at once. Make sure to have a back-up plan in case you get caught.

Step 3: Act it out

Don't meet someone from your other identity.

Step 4a: Caught

If you get caught bunburying, use your back-up plan or try to explain your situation.

Step 4b: Stopping

If you aren't caught, but you want to stop or someone is getting suspicious, "kill" your second identity.
