I mean, there I was having made a special trip over,Bingo. There's your problem. As soon as you put yourself in a position of weakness, people will jump on that for all it's worth. He was so able to intimidate you precisely because you met on his turf, on his terms. "Let me wait till he's done with this story." "Let me wait till he checks VM." All designed carefully to show you that HE'S the one who's in control.Given the urgency of the situation and the fact that you were the one that was on the spot to get the sample out, I can't think of a way out of it that wouldn't have put him in the catbird seat. If there were more time, the way to do this would be to invite him to a meeting to discuss it -- and make sure it's in your building, not his. This way Spot can't play his little "marking the territory" games.
