One of my colleagues committed to complete a work by last week. Even after a week he didn't complete his task.
Today when I asked him about the work status, he said he will do it by end of today. After that he asked this question:
"Do you by any chance have a needle nose pliers by where you sit?"
I didn't understand instantly what he meant. I though he was asking for a needle nose plier device. I said,
"I don't think so"
"That's cool Just Wondering"
I am a not a native English speaker. What does he mean when he said "needle nose where you sit"? Am I torturing him to get the work done ? Is that what he said ? Or was he really asking for the tool?
