What was the most interesting question?

"There were no real questions asked at my faculty interview. He started out by asking me if I had any questions for him, and then I would ask a question, he would answer and say, "anything else?". He never really asked me a question, which was quite the interesting format. He also kept calling me "honey" and talking about how women are better doctors because they are inherently more emotional, and how as a woman I shouldn't feel bad if I only want to work part time so I can be a mother, and how I'll have to have a very understanding husband some day. I was like, I'm sorry, where am I, 1930? My student interview had highlighted my AMCAS application and asked lots of questions straight from there, but the tone was very condescending, all in all, not a very positive interview experience."
