I have a bit of a problem
There is this man that me and him have started working in the same room as for about the last 6 months. He is slightly younger than me, but in the past say 4/5 months he ALWAYS takes the piss out of everything i say...
I was even in a diffrent connecting room today talking to someone else and he still picks up what i say and has a sarcastic/micky taking comment to add to the conversation! and it is always just me!!! i dont understand, is he just being really sarcastic/mean to me for no reason?
Do a lot of men have women they always take the piss out of?
He is always joking around with diffrent people and me but its just me that he seems to pick up on everything i say and take the mick out of it
for example yesterday- I was saying im shocked that this child was doing a certain activty as he normally doesnt join in...
Him- (Burst out laughting)-i cant belive that you just said that how can you be shocked that he is doing it... its hardly shocking and then just as i walked back into the room again.... I heard him saying to someone else in the room that he cant belive you said that .... i really dont understand is there a reason he is constantly winding me up?
Hope someone has some can give me some ansews!

it's his way of getting attention and he's doing so by pushing your buttons.. it's extremely disrespectful to you and opening yourself up to someone like that is a sure way to let him take advantage of you
put your foot down and be firm even when it feels like you're being rude (because you're really not; it's just his own rudeness being reflected back to him)

this is your life we're talking about
do yourself a favor by not trying to include everyone.. you can't have them all but you can choose wisely!

If it's not shy flirt, sounds a bit like professional undermining to me, always watching what you do, always objecting, always comenting to other people...

Yes he does annoy me sometimes, but not always i do admit that sometimes i do walk into these comments but not always...
as far as is he trying to degrade me as a work thing i dont think it is really as he really isnt that bothered about how well he does as work...
