The reason I don't really talk to people about this is because I don't think I need to. But, this is very therapudic I guess...

Anyway, on Wed. I was finishing off my lunch and browsing some funny stuff online. When from behind me the guy who organizes what everyone does and sorts that kind of information quickly approached from behind me in a very upset manner and basically yelled at me. He scolded me like a person would scold a young child who had done something wrong. What did I do wrong you may ask? I'll tell you... He sarcastically asks me if I'm going to a news conference to tape it... I tell him that I didn't know I had to. He rattles off a bunch of static easy to use excuses why I should be taping it. I see that it is about 15mins from happening, so I wont be too late. I appologize for not knowing this was my assignment that day. He walks off muttering stuff under his breath. Now, I'm left sitting knowing I'm supposed to tape this conference, but I don't know where it is. So, since he is walking away from me, muttering under his breath I ask where it is (kinda loudly so he can hear me), and I swear I heard him say "You should know" and that was it. At this point I was resigned to drive off anywhere and then call back saying something like "I guess it wasn't at the zoo, sorry.", but the person I had been working with approached me and told me where it was.

After the conference I return intent on talking to this fellow employee who basically treated me like crap. He is gone for the day. So, I write an Email explaining my side of the situation and that I did not appreciate how he treated me by scolding me and then walking off and not answering a simple question. I get a response Email (because my next day of work he doesn't work) on Sat. He reuses the same "you should have known" excuses in explaining that I should have known period. Then, starts to belittle me by the end of the Email.

Again, I send another Email (because on his first day of work he'll be in about two hours before me) for him to read before I arrive on Mon. Telling him more indebth info about my situation that easilly offsets the "should have known" stuff. I believe I also asked for him to use more respect again considering his kinda mean last line of his email basically accusing me of wanting to be on the internet more than doing my job -which isn't true at all-

So... I have to wait until Monday to talk to his face. Which will be the first thing I'll do if he likes it or not. I will not allow him to treat me, and in effect anyone else, with disrespect like that. I WILL NOT let people treat me like a peon. I am not someone to walk over. I am a fellow employee and will be treated as such.

and in reguards to the video... little late getting to the conference, but everything aired on time and looked just fine.

I think you did the right thing by explaining your side of the story to him... it doesn't seem right he's still being a dickhead. Can you threaten to take it to management?

I wont threaten in the situation. If he doesn't make any effort here I'll flat out tell him the truth (which I guess can be considered a threat), that I can elevate the situation if it cannot be solved between us.

If I say "threaten", or make a statement in a "threatening" way I feel it is an attack on my part. I haven't attacked him yet, and I wont, but that doesn't mean I cannot elevate the situation if it is necessary.

I remember this
Hey this is just like the Military ... man I hate people like that!! I guess what I say is true Different Cows Different Field Same Shit. Sorry you had to deal with that child dude but on the bright side I think he's scared of you or he knows he's wrong. I say we put a lit bag of poop on the door step of his house film it then broadcast it to the whole of the world. That would be so cool ... one minute were watching the Pope next minute this jerk had poop on his bunny slippers. Oh good time good times.
