    Don't think the guy is that rich lah. In all honesty, the bus driver may be "richer" if that bugger has a 10 year loan on his ride.

    Demerit points will be more of a deterrent.

    Depends on when this was asked... and by who.

    Its a very sensitive question and its better to just brush off than answer in general.
    I've seen so many friends/colleagues let this eat into them once they find out about somebodies pay.

    Back to my answer..
    1. When I was younger and my pay is certainly the lowest, I'd just say it.
    2. When I have been around for a while, and since I know the pay bracket of each level, I'd just mention that level.
    3. Nowadays, usually still answer like #2 or don't mention.

    Ask that colleague back, "What is your salary?" A sensible person will not ask such a private question. If he/she/it asked... then don't need to give face.

    I even tell this to someone who asked the same question with this reply,

    "None of your bloody business."

    I think a smart reply would be 'Much less than what I give to the company'

    A great answer will be:

    It's less than what I donate to charities.

    I'll probably reply, "I don't have any pay. Please check with my CFO".

    I agree. Donating blood, bone marrow, are worth more....
