Your boss gives your cell phone number to her daughter who sells knives door to door. Do you meet with the daughter and listen to her sales pitch?

I really need new knives. It is a convenient opportunity to kiss the boss' ass

I don't have the money for fancy knives. And I don't like wasting myself or other people's time.

Sure, I like my boss well enough that I'd be fine to do it. Plus sometimes they have some cool stuff.

Yes, but only because I like knives.

Nope. I don't need any knives right now, I'll go shopping when I do.

I'm curious, isn't there also a privacy issue here? Unless you consented to it, your employer has no right to share your personal phone number with anyone. Any laws against that?

It's the basis of a lawsuit, check the link below.

Oh geez. I hate that kind of blatant abuse by the powerful. Always making the little dude suffer.

Plus--makes it even WORSE that you have to call HER -- the little princess can't be bothered to make the contact. Geez geez geez. Endless suffering all day long every single day.

Oh. NEVERMIND. I see the princess be calling me after all. I misunderstood. Perhaps that's why I'll always just be the little dude. Can't even answer a little question properly. Its so hopeless.

I would tell her I'm not interested in buying knives, but if she wanted to come by and practice her sales pitch I could give feedback

I love knives, and it'd be the polite thing to do I suppose. So yes.

Yes, I've done this job and I know how much it sucks so I'll listen to the pitch and if I can maybe buy a little something.

I would be rather irritated with my boss. I may retaliate by sending the Mormon missionaries to her house. Mwahahahaha.

It would depend on my relationship with my boss.

So if you are sleeping with your boss are you more or less likely to buy the knives?

If my employee pays for the phone, I can't take her call because it isn't work related. If it is my phone, I won't take her call because I don't want to. Either way I have a fit with the boss giving out my number, something that is NEVER OK.

Did boss ask me if they could pass my number, to anyone? Did I agree? Yes? Definitely would meet.
No? Absolutely not, would change my number & boss would not be given that number if they find no problem w/this violation. It is MY #. Respect that.

No. And I tell my boss to never give my # out to anyone without my permission again.

I would meet but probably not buy. those knives are expensive! but sometimes you have to play nice in office politics.

I do think the rest has a good shot at winning her suit.

Why not, they get paid if you listen to them
