Whatever you want, boss, whatever you want…wait, you want what?
A CareerBuilder survey of more than 3,500 people revealed that close to one in four workers have been asked to do tasks that were not related to their day-to-day assignments. And some of them are off the wall.
For instance, one boss asked to be loaned money for a car while another wanted an employee to spy on senior managers. Despite the seemingly wacky requests, and there are quite a few reported to CareerBuilder, two-thirds of workers say they respect the boss, although a third felt they were also smarter than the person with the corner office.
Anyway, here are a dozen actual requests made by bosses that undoubtedly had their employees wanting to run for the elevator:
1. Be a surrogate mother for her child.
2. Spy on senior management.
3. Buy a rifle for him.
4. "Hook him up" with illegal substances.
5. Go online and post false favorable comments about him.
6. Come up with a science fair project for her daughter.
7. Fire the boss's brother.
8. Lend him $400 for a down payment on a car.
9. Remove her stitches.
10. Bail another co-worker out of jail.
11. Clip her dog's nails
12. Help plan her wedding.
