Today, I had an interview for a job I really wanted. On my resume, I wrote that I speak conversational Spanish, although I don't. When I arrived for the interview, my interviewer decided to conduct it in Spanish. FML

Not that I condone lying on your resume, but IF you're going to at least make it something you don't get caught in so easily. A good portion of the people in this country speak Spanish. To top it off, you're in Texas (as am I). More of my retail customers speak to me in Spanish than anything else. YDI because this was an obvious and stupid mistake.

Yeah, it's a high risk, especially if OP doesn't speak Spanish whatsoever. Perhaps putting on there that you speak a little bit won't be so bad if you can understand a few important phrases.

You know Jesus? I actually just spoke to Jesus recently. He spoke back to me and said "It's going to be $10 for the front yard or $15 for the front and back." But ill be sure to ask him why OP lied for you next time I see him.

Yeah, 49 did make me smile with that one.

3, some people just never learn. They get away with a lie once, and think they should start pulling it off more often.

If you are gonna lie about a language, make it something they cant track. Like "South American jungle tribe Takto"
If they know that language, you just need to stand up and leave.
