What can I be asked to do and how to deal with impossible requests?
I would like to ask you what your approach to “impossible” tasks is. Recently I often find myself in a situation that I feel helpless. I believe I cannot say no to my boss, because I am not paid to refuse his commands, I am paid to execute them. Sometimes I just do not know how. And, yes, I do communicate my frustration to my boss that I do not know how to solve the problems, or that I need resources that are not available. He just would not listen to me.
I was already thinking of quitting the job, but I do not give up easily. I believe you cannot quit the problems; they keep coming after you until you solve them. That’s why I am looking for some effective alternatives.
Thanks for your eventual input.
