So I was walking in the hallway at my business, and one of my co-workers said excuse you to me. He said excuse you, when we kind played "footsies," where he was trying to go past me and I was trying to go past him in a corridor and almost but did not bump into each other.
What irked me was how he said excuse you, which I believe implies it is my fault. Shouldn't he have said excuse me, or rather both of us should have said excuse me? Instead, he said excuse you and it left a foul taste in my mouth.
I am confused about this excuse me because he said it in a "gentle" manner. Most of the time (at least my experience) when excuse you is said, it is said in a mad or annoyed tone, but he gently said excuse you. Did he think it was my fault for stopping him?
Edit* I didn't think it would be related but after hearing about the situation, I do believe he implied it was my fault. Yesterday my fellow co-worker was angry at my for confirming information. So I had to ship out a cushion and we have multiple colors, I asked for confirmation if it was the tan color and he just blew up and started saying how he already told me and ranted on me. Usually he's quite nice and after that situation when we "bumped" into each other he said excuse you nicely. Most of the time I wouldn't have thought anything about it because he is rather nice, but given the situation and the responses, for this particular situation I believe he thought I was wrong.
