You are not better than me

Have you ever met someone that, despite their politeness and their smile, is obviously condescending? There is a girl that I work with who is like that. I could never call her rude, in fact she is "nice", but I get this vibe that she thinks that just because my title has the word assistant in it, I must be an inferior person.

Listen, chick, you are a very intelligent person who will go far in life, but SO will I. Just because I haven't found the dream job yet doesn't mean you are better than me. Stop treating me like I was hired to serve your needs, respect my workspace, schedule times to meet instead of assuming that I can accomodate your requests at any time, and learn to treat people like they are equals, not inferiors.
