I have a very long-lasting question about some quite close concepts which I am sure they have some equivalents in current English. I really appreciate it if you could do me a favor and let me find the most precise English meanings for them.
Let's assume that you as an ordinary person refer to an organization sometimes for some official affairs. There is only one person who accomplishes your needed tasks. But the first time that you meet and dealt with him, unfortunately, you had had a quarrel with him for some reasons and this is why he often keeps procrastinating your affairs intentionally or even sometimes deliberately refuses doing your affairs. (Let's forget about the possible hierarchical follow-ups.)
What do you call his action?
He is acting obstinately / stubbornly towards / against you?
— He is spiting you?
What have you done that caused him to act like that towards you in the past?
Did you make him obstinate / stubborn?
Why he is acting that ??
-He is doing to spite you?
- He is doing that out of spite?
- He is doing that to make you obstinate / stubborn?
- He is out of obstinacy against you?
Here I just have tried to make up some sentences to imply what am I looking for. I hope that they make sense to you and you could understand me intended concepts.
Please help me with this question. It is of Paramount importance for me to find the answer to this question.
