I guess it doesn’t matter where you work, because the boss is going to be the same whether you are in an office or on a construction site
I had to order items for the construction business last weekend. We were out of a lot of items that we regularly use. I was going to order the galvanized tie wire, and I noticed that the price on PVC coated tie wire was actually $0.16 less than the galvanized. I honestly didn’t know if we could get away with the cheaper tie wire. I sent an email to my boss. He did not respond to the email by lunch time, so I decided to make the executive decision on my own. When my boss finally responded to my email, I found out that we had to get the galvanized tie wire and not the PVC coated. I had to contact the distribution place to change the order. I explained to the lady on the phone that I made a decision that was incorrect. Both of us discuss our bosses and how they can be difficult to read. I told the woman on the phone that I waited all morning for my boss to email me about the decision. She told me that she was still waiting for an email from her boss about some time off. I guess it doesn’t matter where you work, because the boss is going to be the same whether you are in an office or on a construction site. If my boss would have answered my email earlier, I never would have ordered the PVC coated tie wire. I would have known exactly what he wanted and I would not have looked like a fool on the phone with the distribution warehouse.
