Nobody likes a bully
Know what nobody likes?
Some one who is so insecure, that in order to feel good about themselves they have to put others down. Like a lame elephant trying to stomp on a mouse that terrifies it, even though the elephant knows it's too big to be terrified by a mouse. So it feels stupid.
When you work with a stupid elephant, it creates some serious added stress to your job. Especially if you're the kinda mouse that has a bit of a temper ... such that it equates to walking around with a virtual flame thrower attached to your little mouse tail that is triggered when stepped on.
The elephant may end up blistered, but the mouse is a rodent pancake. And no amount of maple syrup is gonna make that OK.
No one wins.
Unless you like roasted peanuts.
