I assume you meant NOT instead of NOW? And I would tend to not volunteer and, if it came up, to not claim experience but remain humble. If they think you should know they'll be less tolerant than thinking you might not have been aware of a rule. And if they think you're a "know it all" type, then their tolerance will greatly diminish as they show you what you didn't know in their opinion.
