This may not be the most HR way to handle it but I intentionally become very blunt, opinionated and cold to them in meetings. Make them feel intimidated. There's a shift in energy when I do it almost immediately and I know they're thinking I'm a bitch but 1. I'm really just acting like a man and 2. They tend to really back off.

I would casually bring it up w/ a female HR person. Not name names per se, but ask that same question just like you did. She may have insight into who you're working with because of your team(s) and offer some insight or a general warning to individuals that may fit that bill.

Question: I have a client who started a restaurant. He leased the land and bought shipping containers where he spent money contracting out to turn them into bars. I’m having a tough time determining how to depreciate this! First thought was leasehold but he’s not making improvements to a structure...he owns the structure! But nonresidential real estate at 27.5 years doesn’t make sense either as it’s not a brick and mortar building. Curious on others thoughts! TIA

Been performing like a high performer on my client up to this point and all the sudden I find myself looking up a therapist and being almost useless to my team (maybe useless is harsh, but I can’t will myself to get basic stuff done at this point). Literally happened within a split moment; in the morning I was taking the lead on calls and sometime around noon, it just hit and hit hard. Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?

The leader of our team keeps telling me and another woman on our team to have more “confidence.” From my perspective we both have plenty of confidence but have a different approach to the work and client relationships than him.

AITA? Covid Scenario I live in a higher end high-rise residential. I went to get groceries with my mask on today, I was out of disposal, breathable ones so had a thicker cloth one. It was pretty hot as I was walking home and it was getting difficult to breathe through my mask and I took it off outside. Scanned into my building and into the elevator and one of the staff in the building (maintenance probably?) at the concierge desk says “HEY! Wear a mask next time!” ...continued...
