Ok, so I realize that by asking ya'll for help, I might be immature and unprofessional..................
This morning, while in a meeting, a coworker brought up a question. A question that I knew was coming. A question that was snide, but masked by fake curiousity (ie, everyone knew that the coworker was being difficult). I answered the question, in a firm and direct manner. Said coworker then "rephrased" the question and was basically told it was a non-issue and to drop it (not by me).
About 10 minutes after the meeting ended, I received this in my inbox..........
I’m honestly tired of you disrespecting me when I mention things here at work that you may not agree with. It’s unprofessional and rude. Please refrain from doing so in the future. If you have a concern or disagreement about something I say, please handle it in a more mature and professional fashion.
Thanks in advance,
(this is an exact copy and paste of the email)
To which I responded..........
Besides this morning when we disagreed about ***********, would you like to clarify?
If you are unhappy with my professionalism and would like to sit down together with Our Manager and/or General Manger and/or Company Owner to discuss it, that would be fine with me.
There have been several instances. I don’t keep track of them or anything, but I will if you’d like me to moving forward. However, I hope there won’t be a need to.
I have never mentioned it to you before, so I trust just getting my concern(s) out there with you personally will be all that’s needed. We can cross any other bridge we may get to in the future.
At this point, I've not responded and probably won't. Said Coworker's MO is to continue these email exchanges to the point of ridiculousness.
Knowing that you weren't there to witness the exchange....... but that I wasn't told by Our Manager or the General Manager (who were at the meeting) that I was out of line...... am I coming across as rude, immature, or unprofessional in this exchange?
