I’ve got a part-time retail job at a toy store. My co-workers found out that I get a discount and want me to buy gifts for them so they can save money. I’m terrible at saying ‘no’ but this is not something I feel like doing. It will take up a lot of my time and I’ll have to drag all the the gifts to work. Plus, I’d have to put them all on my charge card and I don’t have a big spending limit.
What can I say that won’t upset people but will get me off the hook?
Just say NO…
Be polite, but firm! Indicate that you just make it a policy not to do this. If a co-worker didn’t pay you back right away or you purchased the wrong item it could strain your relationship.
