    Yeah. Always remember: those that can, do; those that can't, manage

      She went on.
      I literally had to remind her i'm an expensive resource and she's wasting company money.
      THis has not been funny.
      My guess is you critiqued her PM skills so she was getting back at you about your code.

      As a contractor you are supposed to kiss the permie PM's ass

      The fact that she is female is supposed to make it easier not harder.

      My guess is you dont like being managed by a female. Probably a subconscious bias on your part.

      This is not sexism in itself, many women also hate being managed by other women as well. They prefer to be managed by men.

        IMHO I'd say that's a load of crap.

          If you're any good the PM will be fine as you make them look good. If they want their arse kissed tell them to foxtrot oscar.

                  I didn't. I left her alone and continued to do my job while havign to deal with a hostile newcomer.
                  Under the nose of the boss who really doesn't care, I saw myself cut off from any sort of discussion.
                  So I am going to just enjoy the end of this, and leave them in the lurch.
