maintain a greater distance between him and yourself - begin by separating work so that you will not need to involve him to complete your tasks. respond to him less / do not offer your help to him, block off your calendar with tentative placeholder meetings so he cant track you.

Flag your appointments as private so he can’t see any details.

Have a clear line of communication with your manager and keep updating them of your contribution and achievements regularly at every 1:1. Make sure you don’t make this about him trying to intimidate you but about self advocacy. I usually have a deck with documentation of my achievements because I used to just forget in day to day marathon so I would just keep articulating and dump the smallest of achievements in the deck and then decide which one to present to my manager later.

Indians can be extra competitive. It’s old school Indian thinking.

“Repeats what I said in group messages”…I call them soundbite stealers. I hate those kind of people. Start distancing yourself, your work. Do what others have said basically. Am I being a soundbite stealer? Ha!

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked.

She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
