    Default highjack?

    He is suspected of selling a fake watch to Melinda and he says "highjack". Is it "fake" or something? He is contradicting her saying he didn't sell a fake, and to the contrary, Melinda is faking him with a replaced junk watch.

    guy - So i say. Now, how do i know you didn't replace my watch with that piece of junk?
    Guy- How do i know you're not trying to highjack me?

    1117417 - you know.
    1119718 - Why don't you take that into

    You saying that I replaced your watch "with that piece of junk" is as absurd as me saying that you're trying to highjack me.

    I'm guessing here.

    He might be using "highjack" in the general sense of illicitly taking control of something for your own purposes. So the guy is saying: "How do I know that you're not dishonestly taking advantage of me just to get some money out of the situation?"

    not a teacher
