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 occasionally have to do the technical interviews for people who want to come and work with whatever company I'm at so I see a lot of CVs.

Sadly, I've yet to meet a boss who'll take any notice of my suggestion that we should randomly split the pile of CVs into two equal piles and throw one pile in the bin so that:

"We don't employ any unlucky people by accident"

I swear that one day I'm going to get this policy through.
