    You get moody after drinking? Who'd have thought it, never seen it before.
    You get away with it when MrsMMM has been drinking as well though. Unlucky

    As a contractor your company is providing services to your client, so you personally cannot have a "job title" as you do not have a "job" within your clients organisation. Your company is not supplying labour to your client, it is providing services. When dealing with agents etc, most will give a job title as a useful way to describe the work that is required but after this point you should pretty much ignore it. Use whatever title your client wants you to use (within reason of course, if they start calling you tuliphead and want you to use that title in your emails you should refuse).

    No need to be nasty or pissy - but, at the end of the day, the role is not what was sold AND (Crucially, because the first bit is often workable) you're now embroiled in some pretty horrendous politics. Get out, get out now before you're stitched up.

    I'm in a role where it turns out I'm technically junior to someone, but a) I negotiated an above market rate and b) On the first day the senior chap said "Really glad to get someone so experienced - I'd like you to look at $x as you seem to have a lot of knowledge there and I'm a bit stuck". Instant good signs.
    This +1.

    You are on a hiding to nothing, exit gracefully before you are booted.

    If it was a decent rate for a more junior position then Id stay and look for something else.

    You're never going to win the argument though. If a permie kicks off and moans about a contractor then you're never going to win even if you're right.
    If you are valued you are. I have had a senior permie try to get my contract terminated after I was caught out saying something indiscreet but not really damaging about said permie (my bad). Permie went over the top and ended up on a disciplinary. I got a renewal.
