She Asked Me To Carry Her Hand Bag, I Refused And She Fired Me. by klark3: 11:15am On Apr 03, 2015
I was employed as an architect in a medium size architectural firm, my boss happens to be a lady.

I hitched a ride in her car after a meeting with a client on site, It's was even my first time of hitching a ride in her car, as I have always eschewed it, on getting to the office she asked me to carry her hand bag along, but I turned deaf ear to her request and swiftly went straight to the office, but she came to my office and gave me a sullen glare.

I thought the malice won't last long, but unfortunately for me, she fired me this morning for a no cogent reason.

I'm downcast and bewildered, she's just privilege to be the manager because it's her dad firm, she's my contemporary, and I was on the verge of supervising a gigantic project.

Was I wrong?

Yes, you are wrong. As long you are not working for yourself, you need to learn to 'suck up' to your boss, especially in our kind of environment (Nigeria). Sorry man, goodluck at your next job.

You are very wrong, insurbodinated abd covetous. How can your boss give you Instruction and you immediately start coquetting? You are on your own. You want to be Joseph without knowing how to dream.

You weren't wrong. It was never stated in the offer letter that you job description included carrying her hand bag. She has inferiority complex and she could only overcome it by seeing you do attend to her domestic needs. She wanted to cross the line and you didn't let her. That's the same way some people get to start doing uncomplimentary things to keep their jobs. You were a man.
Don't feel bad,other jobs will turn up.

@klark3, I believe the above quoted responses are from sane human beings like you. Nigerians have gone to the gutters to be slaves just to have their daily bread, but God is your strength. Just ensure you be more diplomatic and trust in God for your future.

People are different, so I will not blame him if he doesn't carry it, but its weird if she just hands over her bag to you to carry, and your boss doesn't have manners. People like that, will take it personal if there man or brother is told to do something like that. it doesn't seem right. For that kind of thing to happen I believe there should be a level of friendship/relationship between the 2 of you. The secretary to my big oga, I do help her carry her bag, of cause she will say, ayo please help me drop my bag in the office, she's older than I am, although am her senior in heirachy but I don't see anything there, although we kind of close. if she had to told him in an appealing manner the dude might have just carry it.

It is not in the company's rules and regulation u shud carry your boss handbag.

U have not done anything wrong. She needs a puppet and she thought that puppet can be you.

I appreciate d fact dat u turn down her request.

U neva carry your mama bag let alone your wife/gf. Nah one arrogant bi*ch u wan do boi boi for. Ur head correct OP.

You were not wrong bro. I would do the same if I was in same condition. Its always to know and define boundaries in a formal setting. Your boss is just proud and arrogant and may start sending you on errand on house chores. RULES OF ENGUAGEMENT is not only for military men.

Bro,you fvcked up big time..

In search of daily bread,there are so many insults,and compromising situation you just have to ignore to get it.

Anybody telling you otherwise is your enemy..

If you have the chance to redeem the situation,please do. Work no dey Nigeria.

U can try appologize if u still nid d job, buh make ur sef abundantly clear, u av a certificate and u aint an errand boy....I always wonder if the pple in the developed world behave like naija bosses, hmmmm---It won't be funny...
