I'd dispute the statement;
Quote:

Since everyone is familiar with how a coke machine works no additional explanation is required.



That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

If I worked at a bank I'd never expect a PM to say something like, "Since everyone is familiar with how an ATM works, no additional explanation is required. Now, stop wasting time and go and test it..."

Or at Boeing...
"Since everyone is familiar with how an aeroplane works, no additional explanation is required." etc.

I may be familiar with these things from a limited end-user perspective, but I would need to see their requirements and design specs to be able to write any sort of worthwhile test plan or strategy.

So, for the purpose of your interview, did you have anything else to give them or was this an exercise in futility?
