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've never had to lie.
I'm a full time barmaid. Getting a job for me involves drinking in a pub, drunkenly asking if they have any jobs, then answering two questions:

1. Are you over eighteen?

2. Can you pull a pint?

Although I imagine that if I ever wanted to move out of the industry, I'd have to do a bit of lying on my CV as working in pubs since you dropped out of college doesn't count for much when you want a 'proper job'.
