in reply to (OT) Number 1 mistake to not avoid during an interview

 I remember being in an interview a few years ago where I was shown the companies flagship product.

 As it was concerning a field I knew very little about my immediate, out loud reaction, was "Ewww what a nasty colour scheme!"

 I was as suprised as anybody else when I got the job.

 (In all my time at that position the nasty colour scheme for the flagship product stayed the same. Though I grew less upset by it).
