Currently double booked, and absolutely livid after a meeting to discuss my allocation and the Partner who keeps promising more and more of my time to his client had the audacity to look at me and tell me with a straight face that I need to learn to say no more.

Of course the two men just agreed that I needed to stop being so nice, as there was any kind of way for me to win here

Someone who tends to make sexist remarks (without realizing that they are sexist) used an analogy in a client meeting - statistics are like a mini skirt. They reveal a lot but hide the crucial things. Hopefully anyone reading this knows why this is problematic. I’m keen on raising an objection but unsure how. I want to come from a place of building awareness. Any tips?
