Just reading another thread made me think we should have a thread on your best interview nightmares. I've got several. One for starters: I'm interviewing with the CEO of a small company, Him: "...if we hired you, you'd be the smartest one here." Me: (pauses for a few seconds to absorb this statement -- is it a complaint?, a criticism?, a part of his 'sales' pitch!? Reaches decision -- We're done here) Me: "Uhhh, just how far would I have to dumb down? I mean, I could slam down a six pack every day on the way to work if you think that would make me fit in better." How about yours?
