This is a question Faking it

Rakky writes, "We've all done it. From qualifications to orgasms, everyone likes to play 'let's pretend' once in a while."

So when have you faked it? Did you get away with it? Or were your mendacious ways exposed?

Rubbish IT advice
Many years ago, I was IT boffin at a largish Government dept. The IT budget at the time was small, and disk space then was expensive. My boss asked me to send a departmental email asking for people to be more prudent with their use of the communal server.

So I wrote "For all of you using server X for document storage, it has become clear that we are running out of space and at present have no funding to expand the data storage. So from this point on, anyone saving a MS Word document on this server must save it in a much smaller font."

p.s. a click for life if anyone can guess where my sig comes from. Google won't help.

small clue: I included it because it seemed relevant to the QOTW, and it's one of my favourite lyrics.

Faking it
It's not Colgate, and if it was the Muppets they nicked it from something 18 years before, which I can't believe they would have ever heard...

Okay, this isn't really fair
I'm a fan of obscure 1960's music (call it freakbeat, psych etc) but the quote is from a song called "Search For The Sea" by a Glasgow band called The Stoics that released 2 singles in 1968. If you want to hear it, go to

web.mac.com/andymorten/iWeb/Site/Podcast/39512B68-C624-4225-BAB4-82748B3F899C.html and scroll to the song. I swear it's brilliant.

I know!
"Search for the sea" by the Stoics.

And I claim my click for life...
