I have a comical resume. It was actually my sister’s resume, and I just kept her “strong points” (which do NOT apply to me at all) and layout and changed the jobs with new made up ones. I said I worked at Incu for 3 years. I should really tell them about it at some point. Anyway the resume does score me a lot of interviews. I rarely got caught out for lying.. One time I DID get caught out, however, was at a surf shop in Mosman. Not that I like surfing.. Or Mosman. I rocked up since money is always a problem and during the interview the guy conducting it said “Oh hey, you worked at Incu for 9 months when Chance worked there.” then, almost as if it was planned this guy “Chance” popped up out of nowhere, with a curious look on his face and said “I don’t remember you, which is odd since I worked with you for 9 months.” The interviewer then pressed this and said “So, do you know chance?” and I figured this had already turned to shit and replied “No, but I know community chest.”. He didn’t get the joke, and I didn’t get the job. Fair.
