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.

One thing worse than lying on your CV...
Is being told you've lied when you're actually telling the truth.

I was once accused by an interviewer of fabricating my GCSE results & lying about the positions I hold on two boards.

Quite understandably, I told the interviewer in no uncertain terms to shove the job up his arse.

Whilst I could have politely offered to show him proof of the aforementioned, I'm not going to work for anyone dumb enough not to spot the years of fake experience listed on that CV...
