Overcompensating
post #1

I was recently accused of overcompensating at work because I finished a huge report faster than the rest of my colleagues. It took them three days to finish what I completed in one business day. In a meeting following the report, one of my male colleagues called me a "brown noser who is obviously overcompensating for his height and wants to prove himself". 

 

Geez, I thought about buying a huge truck to add fuel to the fire. How do you guys respond to these types of accusations. It's like I literally cannot do anything positive, otherwise I'll be "overcompensating".

I am so sick of hearing the "Napoleon complex" crap in the work place. I work hard because I am a hard worker, not because I am short.
