coworker: a question: …
muli: no idea… let me think for a sec
muli: ok, short answer – …
coworker: (…)
coworker: well, it’s wrong
coworker: your solution sucks 🙂
muli: hey, my solution is worth at least what you paid for it 😉
coworker: it’s worth just as much as I paid for it 🙂


  1. Wow, that is extraordinarily rude. Do you have to put up with it? Or will the coworker be caught and put back in the zoo soon, d’ya think?

    • Nah, you need to take it in the spirit in which it was intended. I’ve been working closely with this guy for the last year, and we know each other pretty well. He was being humorous, not insulting.

  2. I can’t help but wonder what the question was.

      (I cut it from the exchange because the actual question was related to some confidential stuff… but this is the non-confidential gist).
