Had an argument with a partner last night.

He wanted me to prepare a presentation he was going to hold on recent developments in the law within our field.

I asked him whether I was going to make the presentation that he was going to hold by himself and in his own name only, and he said yes.

I then said that either we hold it together and I get to speak just a little or at least stand there, or he does it himself.

So fed up with satisfying narcissists.
