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.

not so much lying...
but accidentally handing in a c.v written in german.

i didn't have a printer at the time, so i gave it on disk for my friend to print copies out for me. he decided to translate the entire thing into german, "for a laugh" , printed a german copy out and put it in the middle of the normal copies. without realising, i handed the copy in german to a well know high street retailer, and shortly got a call back saying they couldn't understand a word of it.

i said i'd bring in a normal copy, but didn't bother because my chances were pretty much already ruined.

so i say to my friend, thanks you german-obsessed fuckwit.
