When you’re dealing with someone about dispatching a problem they have a couple of different options… one option they have is they can choose to help you out and work with you to solve the problem.

The dick move is to more or less imply that the solution is obvious and that you aught to solve it yourself. “Let me know when you have it done.”

The latter option can really wreak havoc with your self confidence.

At that point you really need to get some reassurance that whatever you’re doing isn’t the issue.

I suppose you can just assume that you’re awesome and the counterparty is a dick, but that in and of itself is somewhat of a dick move itself.
