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.

Legless, that application about breeding prizewinning clams...
I have seen it on somebody’s Friends Reunited page. An Irish guy I knew at uni called Collum, I thought he was being wacky & creative but he obviously just nicked it off a viral doing the rounds.


Anyhoo, sticking to zee question;

I know a man in his 70's who put the letters "FSC" after his name whenever he applied for a job; it was the qualification he was awarded at the end of grammar school in the late 1940's. Always seemed to impress apparently.

"Guess what it stands for,” he says to me,
"Financial Services Charter?" Nope.
"Fellow of Science?” Nope.
"I give up, what does it stand for?"
