For someone humblebragging about how smart they are, they sure don’t seem to know how to use “myself.”

He really wanted to make Peter Olinto notice him 😂

Plot twist: OP is also the one who posted that on LinkedIn!

Weird combination of bitter jealousy under the poor guise of hating on someone else’s accomplishment. Gotta love it!

Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people.

I am fairly new to the US and I noticed that quite a few of my team members justify their actions if I am giving them feedback. To me it sounds like they are not really accepting the feedback.
