Challenge #02340-F150: Situation Under Control

During an enemy attack on their cargo ship.

Human: "Be lucky you still have legs, because I collect those ! :-) "

Alien Crewmate: "Can you please Stop quoting Isaak from Battleborn?"

Human: "It works though! Just look at those wannabe Pirates!!" -- Anon Guest

There is a saying, Human is as Human does, and it has a multitude of meanings. In this case, the Human is one thin moral line away from outright sociopathy and psychopathy at the same time.

"You're lucky you still have legs," grinned Human Jon. "I collect those." The delivery was right from the depths of the deepest nightmare, and made the would-be pirates retreat to the safety of their vessel all the faster. Leaving behind them a trail of semi-valuable items and, perhaps, personal effluvia as their fight or flight instincts kicked in.

Hyroq sighed at the rescue, knowing that Human Jon had a remarkable capability for acting. "Can you please stop doing that? It's very disturbing." Then, because he realised that was the point, he added, "To more than your intended audience."
