I started a new job as a driver for an afterschool program. My job description started as “picking up kids at their schools and bringing them to our center”. (which I have a Youth Bus license specifically for). Before I even began my first day, I received my schedule in the mail. On it was a block of time that I am supposed to bring the boss/owner’s child to piano lessons after school and while she is taking her lessons, I am to do the boss/owner’s grocery shopping.
A red flag went up for me at that point. In my thinking I thought it was quite unprofessional to ask me to do her personal shopping. I started the job and as time went on I was asked to do many other personal errands for the boss/owner such as picking up her child’s prescriptions from the Hospital, taking her late library books back and paying the fee’s, making her children lunches before school, and things like that.
I have come to the point where I am going to tell her I do not want to do these things anymore. I just don’t feel it’s the job I applied for and it’s her personal stuff.
I have asked some other friends for their opinions, and they said they would do it if they were getting paid.
Am I right to be upset about this? Would you do it?
