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.

Bit late
But that apple picking thing reminds me of when I applied for a job as an orange picker in Australia.
I said that although I had no experience picking oranges per se, I had considerable experience of apple picking.
When i turned up on my first day I was given a complicated looking bag to collect the oranges in. I tried to wear it as a pair of trousers and was instantly relieved of my post.
