I used to use “with”-statements back in my Pascal days. Then I had this nasty bug where a piece of code I wrote didn’t mean what I thought it meant (which wasn’t supposed to happen in Pascal). For months I blamed the bug on the app API (HyperCard)...

Once I realized my mistake, I went off “with”-statements completely.
