    Default I love it when...

    A vindictive permie **** tries to show you up by writing various emails (copying in several managers etc) saying that your code doesn't work and is not up to standards but eventually it turns out that the code does work, is exactly to standard, but he can't understand what you've written because he's too stupid.

    I also love it when said permie is chastised by several PMs for being a sarcastic, vindictive little ****.

    Anybody else got some love to share?

    Well done MM. Normally permie managers are inclined to side with their permie underlings, unless it becomes completely obvious the latter are in the wrong.

    But this creep will really be gunning for you now, and in my experience what people like that lack in competence they make up for in malevolent craftiness.

    You've had more than enough.

    I will add that it's not the first time he's tried to show up a contractor and come off worst.

    I'm better than dirt. Well, most kinds of dirt, not that fancy store-bought dirt... I can't compete with that stuff.

    There's one on every site. They are afraid that you will make it obvious they are out of their depth in their current role so seek to score points off you first. I just laugh at them. Pennyless cretins.

    add a money counter on to your desktop and invite him over for a chat then point out how much youve just earned whilst talking to him.
