Last night, I was walking down the street then I got teleported in some kind of alien vessel.

Some little alien showed up and told me :

KDJUHW IJHIOUQ CCW IIIIIJJJ !

Then I responded :

QOOCP, KPOW:: OKOKPPO?

So he teleported me back, and I was thinking about what he said, which I don't even understand, I don't understand what I said neither !

Do you agree with the alien? Do you think that what he said makes any sense?

    $\begingroup$ @F1Krazy I'm not an especially talented puzzler, but I doubt that a cipher would decode "IIIIIJJJ" in any meaningful way ;) $\endgroup$ – maxathousand Apr 20 '18 at 14:23

The alien said:

Sorry, I'm afraid I mistook you with someone else and we teleported you by mistake.

And you answered

... gibberish, obviously
This confirmed the alien's suspicions. That's why they teleported you back.

    $\begingroup$ Hmmm. Just mashing the keyboard isn't much of a puzzle.... $\endgroup$ – user30599 Apr 20 '18 at 15:19
  • $\begingroup$ @toto Thanks. I could have hardly figured it out: on my keyboard, the exclamation mark is at the exact opposite side of yours $\endgroup$ – xhienne Apr 20 '18 at 15:25

Did the alien say

what i said neither! from here "I don't understand what I said neither ! I am just looking at the the structure ....four words and a exclamation mark"

the alien did not make sense as you have no idea what he is talking about.

you obviously responded with gibberish.
