ervin0072002:  You seem very defensive.

Yes, I have had several hotshot young bosses - what upsets them most is when I show them up.  It is okay to disagree with your boss, UNLESS it turns out your boss is wrong, and you are right.  I have fixed machines that engineers and technicians with several years more education, several years more experience, and several years more seniority couldn't fix.  But now I am being immodest.

Sure, the world could survive without my skills.  Are you suggesting that the world could not survive without you ?  One day, many years from now, you will look back on this and wonder why it seemed so important at the time.

I have found that getting angry and tense doesn't help, so now I just try to find the humor in watching young hotshots flail and founder.  And if they do eventually ask for my help, I do try to help them.
