Bad Bosses

You start a new job.
Your new manager says to you "make me a cup of tea".
Not "put the kettle on, let's have a cuppa".
Just "make me a cup of tea" said without please or thank you in a way that someone might say it to a slave.

Do you:
A) Tell him to make his own tea.
B) Make him a cup of tea and hopefully he'll like you.
C) Make him a cup of tea, spit in it and rinse your balls in it then enjoy watching him drink it.

It's only a big deal if you make it a big deal.

    Needs context. Straight up first thing not even a hello barked at you warrants a **** off. See's you making one and shouts across jovially make us one not so much of an issue tbh.

    The context is that the bloke was an undoubted 4rsehole of the highest order. Obnoxious, condescending and rude.

    I considered C but eventually chose A.

    Everyone will say C but in reality it will be B, you have to take in to account what kind of dude the boss is too, i.e. just a sarky funny dry kind of guy, or is he an anal retentive asshole, or just a retard who got to be a boss by sheer chance....so many equations factor in the correct response. Once you are in possession of the facts then the correct course of action will become apparent, if B or C then by all means rub your nob around the edge of his cup.

    ive done C a few times , once i had a cold and found it asmusing to see him suffering 2 days later , once I put  his tea bag inbetween my toes before going out for a walk (had super sweaty feet back then !) and put one between my arse cheeks or a combinatin of the two , he deserved it though , a total cvnt and a bully and I told him when i handed in my notice !
     
    If it was an order off him , would ask if its in the job description

    Boss or not, I think I'd want a "please" at least. 
     
    That said, I have had the 'job description' thing thrown at me a few times, I am not sure how legitimate a defence that is? I suspect most contracts will have some kind of clause like "Carry out any duties requested by your line manager" 
     
    It very much comes down to the individual circumstances, the nature of your job, Do you have a workload that making the Boss a cup of tea is going to hinder?  If so then there is grounds to be questioning that.  
     
    Making a cup of tea in itself is a pretty easy thing to do, so its not like "task from hell" short straw job being palmed off on you, it sounds more like an idiot boss flexing his 'muscle', insecure little prat trying to define his boundaries,  ...or he might be a decent bloke who just forgets his manners while under stress?  To early to tell at this juncture. 
     
     I'd make the tea, hand it too him while looking him in the eye, as you do a child and saying "Thank you", and see where you go from there.  
     
     

    Lazy is a word used by the obsessed, to describe those with a life.

    Nah, doubt any boss would tell me make them a brew in such a way, but if so, only be the once.
     
    As a teenager on a YTS many years ago it was a different story, my boss was 6 foot 5 and a real cnut, enjoyed being a cnut on a daily basis. I would make brews and go to the pie shop etc etc etc, it was the norm back then for apprentices to have the piss taken out of them, times have changed. Built up to the point were i just wanted to fight him lol, came close on more than one occasion.
     
    Anyways, a decade later i sees him in an indian restaurant with his buddys. He shouts over "hello Sean, how you doing?", i walks over the table and says "whay you being ****in nice you fckin prick?, outside me and you, you ****in soft cnut", he relied "Sean Sean, whats the problem?", i said "your the fckun problem, now fcuk off". Him and all his pals got up and left.
     
    A few years ago he happened to appear at a wedding reception i was at. He looked sheepish, so i smiled and said "ok Ste?". We got talking and he asked why i had lost the plot with him, i reminded him about how he was a cnut when i was a young apprentice.
     
    He replied "Sean your right, i was a cnut, and im sorry"
     
    Not much work today, lol

    I don't see why not. It depends on the culture of the organisation.

    I've had a few idiots but no one has quite been of the level to be as suggested in the first post.

    All depends on what my position is! Someone working behind a counter in a shop being told to make a cup of tea is totally different to say a department manager in a supermarket!!
     
    If you don't want to be making cups of tea for the duration of your employment, find out how the boss likes it and just make it the opposite!! he'll not keep asking if it's ****e!!

    It's not the making of the tea, that's the issue - heck I'd do it all day long for the right wage - it was the way his boss demanded it. Never mind 'all reasonable demands' it was the 'demanding way' it was phrased. Contracts go two ways - the rules in HR now have bosses having to act a certain way too now.

    And the rules of the free market say if you don't like your job then leave and get another one.

    A boss is a colleague who delegates and does so politely.

    Now I have employee's actual paid ones I must admit I do find myself being a bit cnutish towards them on occasion but for them its a just a job for me its well my business and I am paying for their time and to do a job as I expect.

    I had a full on yell at my main guy this morning because he was bitching about not managing to close some deals and how hard he worked etc etc . Wont bore you but the conversation basically went along the lines of. Are you offing taking the the p1ss you fcking wanker. I sit here from 8am till 7pm then working on the phone till 10 pm grafting and you have the cheek to moan about not getting results because you are putting in 6/7 hours a day. Slammed phone down. 
     
    Felt bad for half an hour then he called me back and said sorry you're right on the face of it maybe I haven't put in what i thought. We had a cordial conversation and then ended up laughing about some **** from last year.

    100%. The right offer, regardless of how nice a boss is, and all you'd see of me is the dust I left behind.

    Funnily enough I made a line manager cry back in the day and the area boss rang up and told me to stop taking the piss (or words to that effect) and I actually appreciated them for it lol.
