Default Don't you just hate rule benders?

I usually don't make that many threads but for some strange reason I've made about 5 in 3 days.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------Ok something that really annoys me is when people blatantly bend rules to suite there own ends today's examples, plural.

1)(this one was just annoying)
Person:*rolls a 3*
Me:*roll's a 5*, OK so I'm going first
Person: I thought that was deployment
Me: OK lets do a re-roll
Person: *rolls a 1*
Me:*rolls a 2*, OK I'm going first
Person: that was deployment
Me: OK.... lets roll for who's going first
Person:*rolls a 5*
Me:*rolls a 6*, OK so I'm going first*
Person:No your deploying first
Me:There the same roll
Person:are they?
Me:yes
Person: OK lets roll again
Me:*rolls a 3*
person:*rolls a 6*, OK so I'm going first


2)Person: my possessed all get power weapons
me: nice roll may I see it please
Person:picks up dice and turns it in his hand so a 6 is showing
Me: (Ill let it slide possessed aren't that good)

3) Person:My havoc launcher is heavy 3 strength 5 blast
me: Sounds fishy do you mind if I see your codex? I forgot mine( I always bring my codex's so people don't cheat me)
Person:NO
Me: Fine I have no reason to distrust you.

4)person: my possessed have 5 attacks each
Me: OK
Person:5 guardsmen die
ME:*picks models up*
Person:*rolls 5 dice about 12 times while I'm not looking*

What rule bending have you encountered.

The roll for who starts and who deploys are the SAME roll.
You only ever do a "roll-off" once pre-game.
The only other chance you get to roll a dice before turn 1 starts (besides any special rules) is to seize the initiative.

Tell him to stop playing 4th ed.

It was either cheating or an epic break down in communications.

This isn't rule bending, it's just being a jerk.

That's not bending rules, that's cheating.

That's not bending rules, that's being dishonest and cheating. If someone won't show you their Codex they're lying about something so don't trust them.

Yet more cheating.

I really suggest you don't play this person(s) again. They're full of crap.

Either don't play them again or bitch-slap them with their own codex with the respective page on the rule he is abusing...

Yeah I thought he was bending rules not really cheating. Also he's been kinda sore since I killed a 6 man nob squad with a 3 man squad and sweeping advanced them.
