Guys I work for myself and its great (love being my own boss) but after covid I decided to look for work for some company because financial stability is everything in this life

Last job I had, I quit because the boss asked me to make coffee sometimes. We had a good relationship but fuck that 'can you make me a coffee', go make yourself a coffee..

Please god give me patiece..

Pray for me 😅

    I had a boss ask me that before.

    I said no and gave him a look like he had crossed a line. He was a little taken aback and never asked again.

    What age do those people think they live in? The age of serfdom in rural Russia or something? How do you grow up as a functional human being without knowing that’s a rude thing to do?

    Previously the company I worked for, we were so friendly, we had days assigned who to make coffee on which day. So, when it was my turn, I made coffee for everyone & I think, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Cause, I never knew that I could do something other than programming :/

    well, knowing how to say a simple (constructive) NO goes a long way ;) Quitting your job to say a (destructive) NO -- not so much...

    BTW I recall folks at my work actually insisted on making me a coffee that one week (deadlines were closing in) :D While it might sound nice, it felt quite awkward.

    What if in your new job someone will ask you to make a coffee for them? Will you resign too and find another job again?

    And here I am *asking* what coffee others want.

    Saying no to small pleasantries. Didn't realize it could be a powermove but apparently it is.

    "could you hold the door?"

    The startups I worked on had a pretty nice policy: if you go grab coffee and the jar is empty, you make coffee. As everyone needs coffee, the one noticing the scarcity of crude oil was pretty much random.

    @Devnergy possibly
    I didn't quit only because of that, but it didn't help either

    @priandpasta Well I didn't plan to make it too strong, I was just clueless how to make it properly..
    But yeah, if you guys have problems with brewing coffee, intentionally brewing a bad one might get you off the hook.. xD
