Future Ted, the narrator on How I Met Your Mother, is known for Exaggerating the stories to his kids. It is done for comical purposes, mainly for the things he either does not remember or did not witness. This quality fits right along with him being unreliable, as well as telling lies and using euphemisms.
• In Miracles, while telling about how things wouldn't have been same if he had gotten into any of the other cabs, one cab is exaggerated to look like it's being owned by a maniac.
• In The Rough Patch, Ted's exaggerations turn Barney, who has put on a little weight since starting dating Robin, into a fat person and a tired Robin into an old lady.
• In The Rough Patch, to hide to his children about willingly watching porn video Archisexture, Future Ted exaggerates that the video flew into the VCR by itself.
