I agree that this is a predictable interview question. When I encounter it I offer a fairly neutral problem that I've encountered in the workplace and that also had a positive outcome from all sides of the issue. Just enough detail so they can tell it's real but not so much so that it might draw more attention to itself while interviewing.

I got this question during an interview for a job which unfortunately I did not get. Involved a situation where I was asked to complete a project but felt I was not getting enough management support. My manager seemed to be washing her hands of the situation and told me to figure it out. Anyway, a very common question so be prepared to get it.

When I work at the hospital I'm Medical records,the daughter came up for the funeral home for her mother's funeral.She keep calling me to find out if the death cert was signed I said to her that as soon as it was done I would let her know.She called me 4 times and said that if the cert wasn't signed, She was going to call the president of the hospital.I called all over looking for the doctor and final he called me back and said he signed it electronically in the system.I called back the funeral home and told them that it was signed.It took me about 2 hrs to resolve this issue.

I have gotten this question lots, but it usually has to deal with a difficult person rather than a situation.
