Today, I asked the vice president of the company I work for why is he always on my back. He took me into his office and told me in private that the owner likes me too much, and wants to promote me to general manager. I was glad to hear that, until he told me he thought I wasn't a "smart guy", I'm a "smart ass". FML

OP here, so I talked to the company owner directly and he actually informed me that he wanted to train me to be the next vice-president of the company, but the current vice president insisted to see how I do as a general manager first. Our current vice-president is 77 years old and does not want anyone in his position. I have to get along with the old greaser knowing he will put me on the wrong path every chance he gets.

Sadly, yes. They though they were actually smart, but they were just a smart-ass. Dumb as a rock - which in this case might be an insult to rocks - and had an opinion about *everything*.

Yes, yes I have. Many times.

Any chance of discussing this with the owner privately? Without sounding like a snitch? It could help you later if/when the vp tries to screw you over for real!

OP, document every incident that the old vice president thwarts/ denigrates you, then show it to the company owner after 5-10 times.
