Time to overreact to the fullest, never bring in your own ideas anymore and always relay everything to team lead
You're not overreacting - it's a bit shit. But bear in mind your coworker may be being dumb rather than malicious.
I'm shit at confrontation, so while I'd recommend having a direct chat with coworker about why this is shit, I probably wouldn't do it myself and instead stew over it for months. Don't be me.
VaderNT18179dYour reaction is fine. Such things should be discussed and decided within the team, as this is literally not your team lead's concern. Honestly, I find your coworker's action somewhat childish, running to your team lead like running to your mommy for comfort.
Hopefully the team lead replies along the lines of: "Thanks for letting me know. Now discuss this among yourselves like the consenting adults you are, bye".
Thank you for the answers!
I talked things through with them the next day. They apologized and told me, that their actions were not meant to be maliciously. They acted before thinking.
Seriously? I'm not buying it. They are pretty young and inexperienced, but they aren't not that naive.
I will be cautious from now on.
