This is a question Job Interview Disasters

The boss showed me the shop floor, complete with loose floor tiles, out-of-date equipment and prospective colleagues eyeing me like a raw steak. "Christ, what a craphole", I said. I think that's the moment I blew it. Tell us how you didn't get the job.

Not a disaster, but I felt stupid
I had applied for a senior position, and all I remembered from the job description was how often it emphasised the need for maturity and experience. So when the interviewer asked me how old I was, I answered "28, and a half". He looked at me, then laughed out loud. Got the job though.
