Employers in the UK have a new tool to help them work out if potential job candidates are lying about their age. The handout titled “Sorting the Wheat from the Chaff or How to work out if the person you are interviewing is an lying old git”, is the brain child of the British Bureau concerned with Fabricated Untruths Clouding Key Employees Records (F.U.C.K.E.R)
The F.U.C.K.E.R Bureau suggests that interviewers use a simple questionnaire during each interview. The ten questions are said to be designed to catch out anyone who has lied about their age during the application process.
Yarpnews has reprinted the ten questions below. See how well you do…

The F.U.C.K.E.R Bureau advise that if the candidate’s answers are mostly As they are ‘old farts’ and the employer should be wary of them as they are probably lying about their age. If their answers contain more Bs then they are definitely young enough to go foreword to see the interview panel and if anyone answers any of the Cs they should not be employed and where possible immediately escorted from the building.
