OP's reply should be:

'I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let this all go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.'

15 - I fail to see a "you" anywhere in #2's comment.

OP: Should've answered with "You can try, but if you kill me the code is lost" or etc. I would have played along. Unless your coworker was serious; in which case you may want to keep an eye open when you sleep.


If someone told me that, I would not know how to react. If you laugh at them they could be offended, but if you take it too seriously they could be joking. The best response? Tell them you're from the future and know everything that the person sent there to destroy you will do. Then awkwardly stare at them until they cower in fear.

That sounds like an overly polite response. (checking where you are from)..... LoL... Canada? I should have known.

It just sounds like an epic arc enemy in the work place. Perhaps they should get a theme song for when that person finishes sentences, or study up on the tv show "The Office" and figure out how they deal with Dwight.


-49 I'm Canadian and I'm perfectly capable of being rude! I can even curse, allow me to demonstrate: you beaver born, untalented maple fudger! Get on out, before we get the Zambonie after you!

There is a reason we get along with Canada so well now. Besides the maple syrup and ice maintaining machinery. Course, when you guys attacked us before we were a county wasn't cool, but enough time has passed to laugh about it now.

I agree, it does make life and working so much more fun and easier when you can loosen up and have a good time with your coworkers and the newbies. I am a charge nurse and I had to train a newly licensed LVN. I had her convinced that I was born without a belly button for weeks. I told her that when the doctors found out about my lack of a belly button they had to get creative in order to save my life by finding some way to nourish me via an artificial bell button. I told her a bunch of medical bs to make it seem like it was the truth. I even told her that my parents saved up a lot of money so that they could afford to get me plastic surgery for a belly button so that I wouldn't feel so self conscious about not being like all of the normal teens. She was so disturbed by it that I couldn't keep it going and had to tell her that I was just teasing her. Poor girl, lol. But she took it like a champ. And we became best friends.

#86, That is awesome! I love that y'all became best friends. A lot of my friends were met in that way. Have your next trainee look for a left handed screw driver. Took my buddy, like 40 minutes before he realized.

At one of my jobs we locked all newbies in the freezer for like 15 seconds. Just long enough for them to realize that they were trapped and freak out a little bit.
