: : A friend said this to me last night. I was kinda dumbfounded. it sounded like he was teasing me. and I asked him if that was bad. and he said no. but i'm just curious of it's meaning.

: I'm not sure if I can give an exact translation. It means the person doesn't know whether to be amused/delighted or annoyed by your behavior, personality, etc. The statement can be a compliment or a criticism depending on the situation and whether the speaker is smiling or frowning.

: Anyone else want to give an explanation?

I would add that here and "You are something else" in a thread nearby could also be "compliment or a criticism" depending upon the ego on the receiving end of the phrase.
