Have you been baited?
It's excruciating to have the bait right in front of you.
You want to snap.
And typically the one doing the fishing knows about how long it takes for you to reach for the bait.
The key is to resist, use proper channels, and be confident in your position.
I'm the kind of person who likes straight forward dialogue. I'm not a big fan of the baiting effort to get what you want.
Instead I like an honest conversation, data analysis, and protocol share.
Baiting takes a lot of time and sucks up a lot of energy too, energy that could be spent on more important affairs.
Back to the original question, have you been baited? If so, how do you react--what's your strategy?
