That is incredibly petty. I would never tolerate this kind of bureaucratic
nonsense. Just so people can have their little power-plays.
I would just ignore this little tyrant. I've worked contracts with people like
this and its best to just run right around them. The tyrant will throw fits
and make threats, but when other people see what a good job you do, they will
ignore the tyrant as well.
Control freaks are like children. If you acknowledge or agree to their immature
behavior they will become more spoiled.
