This is a question Lies I told on my CV

I've not had to lie on my CV (resumé for all you 'merkins) for a while, but way back when I was a teenager and C was a cool programming language, I listed it as one of my skills.

My new boss was remarkably nice about me spending my first week's employment reading a "how to program in C" book.

"I am currently learning Japanese"
Actually I was at the time. I just hadn't got very far, so when I was up for a job and the guy spoke fluent japanese I was able to legitimately say, "oh I'm just a beginner..." next question.

I took it off the CV when the very next interview started with "Ace-san, nihongo no benkyo wa do desu ka?".
