Turn it around and *have him check your work*, then let the manager know that you *assigned him this task*.
It'll be fucking hilarious!
That's awesome and I may get pushed to the point I'll do just that.
It'll be so funny because at some point he'll say to your boss, "I checked this over for ___________," and the boss will say, "yeah, he told me you assisted. Good teamwork."
Have a positive attitude, and enjoy your new subordinate.
This is the answer
Why don't you do what he does?
Ask him to cc you on emails, let him know that he needs to inform you of anything happening (Use the excuse that its for the team).
Try and do what he does, and when he says something to you, tell him that the same way he feels, that's how you feel. One that happens explain to him that as of yet, neither of you are in a management position and should work to help each other and only take orders from the actual management.
A measured response and one designed to mirror and then expose...brilliant. I don't know why I'm so emotionally unintelligent that I can't think of these types of solutions on my own.
