Have you received an NDA to sign with a lame excuse?

Alonso @Alonvaes

Yes! You heard that right. I want to hear your stories about lame excuses from the person on the other side about wanting you to sign an NDA. I want to create a website about excuses you usually find from people that ask you to sign an NDA.

I'll share one situation:

Once I was in the offices of a startup just getting a tour from the founder, and he asked me to sign an NDA because "I could see code from the business".

    It might be more poignant to ask when people haven’t received a lame excuse to sign an NDA. Wait, then you wouldn’t have much copy for your site! 😉

      Busted! Haha, do you have any good anecdotes @c0nsilience?

        This is kind of the reverse of that, but I was bidding on a relational database project, where I would be in contact with proprietary info, and sent the co. a signed NDA - and they about lost their minds! 🤦‍♂️ Lol. So, it was a time when one was actually needed...but they thought it was the craziest idea they had ever heard of. They were strange birds.
