What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was very old (ca. 85 years) and made several inaccurate statements regarding items on my application. I wasn’t sure if he was intentionally making “mistakes” to try and catch me off guard and trap me in a lie or if he was just old and had not thoroughly read through my application. I did my best to politely correct him but after about the 5th or 6th mistake it became a bit awkward." Report Response
