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.

When I were a yoof
I was working in a store in dublin during the summer. We were looking for some extra staff and received a load of CV's. The one that sticks in my mind was a girl who's CV read perfectly normally until you got to her hobbies.
Reading - ok
Cycling - nothing strange there
Dog loving - hmmmmm

Despite my begging the manager to invite her in to ask her to clarify 'dog loving' he refused. I'll never know how she loved dogs now. That's a regret I'll have to take to the grave unless anyone else can shed some light on what 'Dog loving' is exactly.
