There is an aggresive senior colleague in our company. The company is dominated by the same caste he is. He thinks I stole his rain-coat. And the reality is that I don't even drive two wheelers to need his raincoat. I have my umbrella. I told him this in call where he was very aggressive and I am pretty sure he hasn't trusted me on it. He'll ask me again tommorow. My other colleague called me and said that "he was on fire, he will check your bag tommorow". That's disrespectful and mean thing to even imagine to say for a person that I am. How do I deal respectfully without losing my self respect with him?
I don't want to bend but at the same time don't want to disrespect him with words.
