It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.

That’s a tough one. Do you report directly to him? It’s easy to start not giving a fuck in this situation, but be careful about having it impact your career progress. I would let him know the hurdles you went through to make Saturday happen. The least you can do is get some karma points out of this. Don’t make things worse. I know this is going to unpopular with some of the folks here... but you gotta look out for number one and swallow your pride sometimes.

I’ve had to tell a couple folks to be nicer in my years. You’d be surprised how quickly they respond with either “ sorry”, “denial”, or “silence” BUT they know that their behavior was unacceptable and I can tell they don’t sleep well that week. It’s the most I can do and then do everything possible to remove them my life.

I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog. People in power: take note.
