I'm having a (fairly) civil argument with my team leader at work and we can't agree. The other party makes two or three blaming statements which I feel are untrue, but then immediately says "I don't want to argue anymore".
I told Alice to tell you to do X, so why did you do Y? Anyway, I don't want to argue anymore.
I feel this is passive-aggressive. Should I say "I don't want to argue either, but I need to address your last statements?" If I just agree to not argue, it feels like I'm tacitly agreeing with their statements and accepting their blame.
Or should I just say "I disagree with what you said and I don't want to argue either"? Do I have the right of reply and what's the best way of responding without dragging out/restarting the argument?
