Male colleague: I need you to find this information I don’t know how to find.

Me: Here, have this information I found for you!

Male colleague: Oh, I actually need slightly different information because I did not provide all the necessary details.

Me: Okay. Well, that information still applies because reasons, but here is some other information also.

Male colleague: [patronizingly] Oh, that’s okay. You did great.

You. Did. Great.

That’s okay. YOU DID GREAT.

I know I fucking did great, okay? I don’t need you to tell me I’m good at my job. I don’t need you to tell me “that’s okay” when I give you an incomplete answer because you gave me incomplete information. Of course I did great! I’m a competent professional. You don’t know me. You clearly don’t know my job. I do not need you to tell me that I did great in that condescending tone just because you’re a middle-aged man and I sound like a young girl. Eidrjsjcjrjduehf!
