Then on the actual job... your coworker asks you... what's a box model again? How do you configure Webpack? How do I actually do any of the things my job requires? Well, at least I studied algorithms for a few weeks while interviewing. Phew.

yep, I was once asked a question of if you can only have two variables how do you switch their values. I was in a peevy mood(due to idiot I was interviewing with) and didn't really think before I answered. But I essentially said never happens in real life and why the heck do you want too and dude it really isn't possible. Once I thought about it for a second(a week later) I understood it was just a theoretical question. But hell.
a = 15
b = 5
b = a-b
a = a-b
But would that ever happen in a real life work environment?
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
I think after years you become so focused on real problems and real solutions, that such out-of-the-world questions are irritating you so much you not even feel to do a real effort...
You take it as an insult to your developer intelligence

Most people involved in hiring, (HR and managers), wouldn't recognise talent if the candidate had it tattooed across their forehead. So they resort to 'mechanical' methods of selection. If anywhere needs the help of AI, it's recruitment - because the real stuff isn't in abundance!
