Thanks for asking.
I've had to work with people like that before (too full of themselves), and you just want to beat them. Or maybe that's just me. They go out of their way to make things more difficult for you, when it would be so easy for them to just do what you've asked. But anyway, I'm preaching to the choir here.
I thought you had one of those metal splints on your finger. If not, maybe you ought to put it back on until it's completely healed.
It'll all work out, it always does.
