Also, I and a few of my friends will jocularly and deliberately pronounce it as if it were the verb resume (two syllables, long e and u) when we know there's no possibility of confusion. (At least in my usage, a resume and a curriculum vitae are different things--a c.v. is used mostly for academic jobs, and lists everything, while a resume is used elsewhere and summarizes, often in a single page.)
