You gave him exactly what he wanted; an apology, an admittance that you were being “aggressive” which wasn’t even aggressive at all – you acted like any other male coworker would have…

… and he still doesn’t respect you.  Because he didn’t from the start and it was painfully obvious.

Well, at least you made an attempt to “fix” things.

If this guy is a sub-contractor, that means your company hired him, so can’t they fire him? Or go to his bosses and say “adjust this guy’s attitude, or give us someone who will work with us, or lose our business”? Unless he has some unique skill or qualification, I don’t understand why your company is willing to pay for this guy to cause trouble and give your boss headache and more work.

It just really bothers me that more often than not it’s a woman being urged to be the “bigger and better person” in situations like this.  Even when we are completely right, and a man is completely wrong, somehow we’re made to feel we need to be the person who needs to apologize for making it obvious a man is wrong, like it’s our punishment.

No.  God, does that piss me off.

MsGinkgo:  I don’t care if he started the whole damn company and give your company services for free…your company is a lawsuit waiting to happening. Allowing their employee to be discriminated against and disrespected because of her gender is APPALLING

Document this shit, lady. All of it. Quietly, discreetly, on your own computer at home, but document it.
