I was in a fog this morning at work and completely forgot my filter. I told a girl who was wearing a zebra pattern who was walking in front of me that I felt like a lion and wanted to bite her face. She turned red, smiled only a slight nervous smile, and basically scurried off. I was smiling so I hope she knew I was kidding. Do I expect a call from Human Resources tomorrow? Would you freak out if someone told you that? It was funny for me but I hope I didn't scare her too much. I'm too old for this sh*t, I need to watch my mouth.
Is saying this to a coworker inappropriate?

ROFL. Her face? Awkward. I don't think she'll call HR for you threatening to bite her face, if you said hiney or something else, then be worried.1
I'm in HR and yes, it is a possibility. People often forget that thing may come across and inappropriate inter workplace. What you told her has hostile connotations and isn't taken lightly, especially if there is witnesses. If anything , you will be spoken with. I highly recommend that you refrain from further contact with the girl to be on the safe side.1
clearly it made her uncomfortable and therefore was not appropriate for the workplace. next time you see her just sat that you are sorry if you made her feel uncomfortable with your comment and that you only meant is at a joke. I doubt she'll tell hr or anything though, cause you didn't say anything super bad or sexual2
Lmao if I knew you at work, or even if I didn't actually, I wouldn't report you. I'd just laugh and forget about it. It's funny though xD1

haha cool. Keep pushing your luck with women, that's how you'll get somewhere and learn the boundaries!1
Lol a bit awkward, but no really inappropriate so long as you said it in a playfull non creepy way. Don't over think things.1
Creepy psycho killer music starts playing. "Reeeee reeeeee reeeeee reeeeeee..."0
Having made a similar mistake before, the girl whom I told it too was perfectly fine with the comment, however, what you have to worry about is fellow coworkers, a coworker reported me. Long story short 9 times out f 10, it is a witness and not the direct individual.1
