I interviewed at a place where they asked me to write a simple My/SQL query on the whiteboard.
They hadn't erased the board from the person who interviewed before me, so I just pointed to the board and said it was already written there.
I didn't get the job.

Then you get distracted and go a bit too far and have to redo a quarter of the things you just undid.

reminds me of: How to draw an owl
"Allman has consistent bracket placement. It's easy to see where the starting bracket starts and stops, and it's easier to find missing or extra brackets using this style. Allman makes it obvious at a glance which part is the control statement and which is the actual block of code.
In Allman, if you comment out the control statement, the code will still compile and run. That just doesn't happen with KNF, instead you have to go and hunt down that pesky closing bracket."
