  • The Old-Timer

    Talk about a generation gap: At first, you found it endearing when The Old-Timer called you "doll," but when he started asking you to send a fax or set up a meeting—even though you're not his subordinate—you grew tired of his Mad Men-esque ways. Determine why his behavior bothers you, says Michelle Tillis Lederman, author of The 11 Laws of Likability. Is using nicknames (albeit borderline-insulting ones) part of the office culture? How would he react if you said, "Sure, sweet-cheeks. I'll fax this if you grab my coffee"? Sometimes it's easier to overlook ignorance when there's no evil intent behind it. However, if he is trying to "put you in your place," then stand your ground. Instead of doing his grunt work, offer to show him how it's done so he can do it himself next time.
