Many workers across the U.S. have been asked to do some pretty crazy — and at times potentially dangerous — things for their bosses. According to a new CareerBuilder study, 23 percent of workers reported that their bosses have asked them to perform tasks that are not related to their jobs.
You may get annoyed when your boss asks you to grab lunch for her while she’s in back-to-back meetings, but that pales in comparison to what other workers have had to endure. According to the survey, their bosses asked them:
To be prepared to delete all emails and computer files at a moment’s notice
To be a surrogate mother for her
To spy on senior management
To go online and post false good comments about him
To come up with a science-fair project for her daughter
To lend him $400 for a down payment on a car
To scour an abandoned office building for furniture and supplies they could use
To bail another co-worker out of jail
To clip her dog’s nails
Craziest thing your boss has ever asked you to do?
