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.

Thats a bloody good point Dobby...
...about employers lying on job descriptions.

It took me 2 years to figure out that "Exciting opportunity in the financial services" means "Soul destroying admin shit"

"Challenging Role" means "Impossible work load aimed at causing your imminent mental breakdown"

"Flexi-time" means "You work when we fucking tell you to work fuckface"

"Competitive industry standard wage" means "You're a monkey, here are some peanuts, DANCE MONKEY, DANCE"

"Working in a close team" means "Complete cunt of a manager telling you 8 hours a day that your work is not good enough, you will need to work late, and that I own you man-bitch"

Oh dear, I made myself sad.
