While I can respond with amount of sarcasm used by the other posters, I'll just directly voice how I feel about the situation.

It's so sad that you'll often hear of employees only doing the minimum that they're tasked with. For a task given by their bosses, any small divergence from what they think they are paid to do will result in a complain.

Can we agree that the days of employees feeling grateful for whatever opportunity they have, knowing full well that they can at anytime be replaced, are over? Ca we agree that no employee is out there to work hard, to work for the company and not for himself?

i think it depends on the type of work. maybe the boss wants to test you if you are ready for the next level of work lor, if good, maybe promote you or give you better review

but if tell you to fetch kopi then maybe can tell the management or something

If you are a junior level staff then you could be forgiven for the mentality that you can only do what your job title says. However if you are executive staff then you should reflect on yourself unless you are content on staying as an executive the rest of your life.

Anyway what kind of senior level work scope are you talking about?

I am not an Executive. To be exact, I am a Secretary in a law firm but my boss wants me to do up the contents of a legal document that is to be done by a lawyer not a support staff. If you put yourself in the customer's shoes, the customer pays so much legal fees to a lawyer to do up the contents of a legal documents that have to be submitted to the Court but the lawyer tells the secretary to do instead. What do you think ? Is the boss bullying the secretary who does not study Law ?

You can tell that to the youngsters but definitely not me. You do not understand the whole scenario. Well, you don't need to understand anyway since you are another dumbass.

What's the pt of trading senseless insults online? If u have a pair the just quit & get it done. If not just confront the boss or MOM about this "bullying" and see if anyone gives a flying fish.

If you are an oldie then it's even worse - I can't believe an uncle is still talking like a kid with this who bully who online charade.

And your point is? Blah blah so sad kena bullied, honestly nobody in this world gives a flying fish. Either you quit or you confront the law firm and be prepared to sue them.
