I have to tell myself that R is not a bad person. He doesn’t repeat what I said or interrupt me out of spite or meanness, but out of insecurity. After all he’s the task lead and I am just a worker-bee. It’s when he instructs me to do what I was planning on doing anyway that irks me the most.

Interestingly, I had this very conversation recently with my daughter, who has a handful of of people like R in her life right now.
I hate that. It does come from insecurity. But I usually find it’s a case of mansplaining too.
Or maybe R is a nasty asshole.
Or all the above!
