Q: Hi Allana, I am a 37 year old male and I work with someone who is infuriating on a regular basis. We’re equals, yet he feels the need to constantly speak to me in this awful, condescending manner. He tells me he hates how I answer the phone. He repeats things several times as I am too dumb to understand it. And on more than one occasion he has asked me why they even hired me in the first place. I have been dealing with this for almost a year and I’m about to snap. How do I keep from decking this one guy one day?
