The mortgage one is hilarious. When I was buying my first house, the bank told me at first that the computer didn't think I could afford the repayments month to month.

The fact that it was a clear £100/mo less than what I was paying in rent, that I was already paying and managing to save up for a deposit while paying, should have been self-evident that I could afford a smaller amount.
