Was my landlord out of line to pass my key to another tenant?

TenantFilter: So I gave permission for the building manager to let a contractor into my apartment to do some fix up work. Not only does she not let him in personally, which is what I thought I okayed, but she leaves the key to another tenant to pass on to the contractor when he shows up. Am I overreacting in thinking that was way out of line? How do I go about responding to something like this?

As it turns out, I was home when the contractor showed up. I only found out about this because the guy holding my key told me. Incidentally, this guy really creeps me out. He's like 50 and hangs around all day on the stoop (I don't think he works) with his shirt open. Also, the first time I met him it was like 11 in the morning and he was drunk. Not that that's particularly relevant, it just adds a little flavour.
So I'm thinking at the least I'll confront the building manager and make it very clear that this will not happen again. At most, and I might be overreacting, I'd like to get my lock changed.
