I left my job and turned in my laptop.
On that work laptop, I used my "usual" personal password, as the password.
When I left and turned in the laptop, no-one asked for the password. A couple of weeks later my former manager starts texting me and calling me asking for the password. For security reasons (even stating this feels insecure) I can't give out that password. It's my "personal" password I use in other situations.
I want to get the laptop, login (with my "personal" password) and change the password to 12345678 for them, and give it back.
I offered to receive the laptop, either by having a former co-worker visit me, or have it sent via a courier service or something like that.
My manager and I setup a time for that, which he didn't honor. I offered to meet somewhere near the office when I was in the vicinity but that wasn't honored either.
Now they're bugging me again with texts and calls and I don't have the time to handle this.
What are the expectations here? Can i just simply say "I cant do this" and let it rest? What about "I'll get back to you when i got the time"?
I don't mind doing it, but only if it costs me minutes of my time.
