We get $15 for dinner. But if your receipt time stamp is too close to your Uber time stamp, you can't expense it, because you technically have to eat your meal in the office 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

I was recently promoted to be a senior and I’m on this project with an acting senior and associates. The acting senior would tell everyone, including me, what to do everyday before I get the chance to. I feel like he is stepping into my boundaries. I feel uncomfortable being told by him what I have to do when I know it myself. I feel like he’s my senior instead lol.

Am I being oversensitive about this as a new senior? Or how would you address this?
