What would you do if someone tried to boss you around?

Be it at work or in your personal life? Let's say that the person is just an acquaintance and talks to a lot of people (seemingly friendly to them). Would you suck it up and ignore the bossiness as best you could? Or would you make a statement?

  • Well at work obviously there would be a higher-archy to deal with, and I would try to respect my top boss and immediate boss if they were different people but......I would never do anything which compromised my basic beliefs, EVER!!!! I once walked out on a job because my very best friend at the time called me while I was at work crying her eyes out and super freeked out, she said she was leaving her husband because he had just beat her in front of her kids! I was also living with her at the time because my house had burned down and I had nowhere to go! She called me at work because she needed me and I explained the situation to my boss, whom I always thought very cool! Well we were already short-staffed that day and she said "NO", and I said "my friend needs me, I am leaving when she gets here"!! I left and found out the next day that I was fired!!

  • I wouldn't stand for it either. I never have and probably never will. I am ver stubborn and hard headed that way. The more some one tried to boss me around, the more I dig my heels in. I have lost many of boyfriends that way. At work, it might be different. But then if your boss is a good person, then they wouldn't be bossing u around anyway, most people would ask. "You get more flies with honey"......
