Needless to say, I never valet my car unless absolutely necessary.
When I was about 20, I lied on an application that I had experience in fine restaurants as a waiter. So I got this job in a Greek restaurant and the owner observed the way I carried trays, couldn't open up wine bottles, got the orders mixed up (I never wrote anything down). In no time he promoted me to head waiter, but I actually did learn and eventually did a good job. I guess I'll never know why but I think his wife had a thing for me.
