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.

They didn't get the job
A few years backI worked in a recruitment department. We kept a record of CV own goals. Some of which are:-

'I have lurnt Word Perfect 6.0 computor and spreadsheet progroms'
'It's best for employers I don't work with people'
'I was working for my mum until she decided to move'
'Let's meet so you can ooh and aah over my experience'
'Marital status: often, Children: various'

and my favorite

'References: none, I have left a path of destruction behind me'
