Now-I am saying this as nicely as I can….. If needledick speaks to me like that again; alone or in front of any other staff member, I will quit. I do not talk in a demeaning manner at any time to him. I would appreciate the same respect, especially since he is not my supervisor. A title behind your name is a false sense of security, all too often taken advantage of.
If this situation chooses to repeat itself, I will have a rebuttal to his derogator, sarcastically condescending comments, and I will assure I will not be the one looking stupid again.
