    My boss wants me to buy a new mobile

    I am working in a government organisation.Recently my boss called me to his cabin and told me that he wants me to buy a new mobile phone so as to maintain the standard of the company. Actually my phone is a low priced phone. Now I am really in a fix as I donít have enough money.What to do in such a case?

    Hello,

    It is good to know that your boss giving you such advice. You can certainly take
    his advice and buy a new mobile phone. It's up to you to decide whether to buy a
    new set or not. It's only a friendly advice. But good mobile phones have some advanced
    features like internet connectivity, camera and other applications which can be beneficial
    to your work environment.

    Bye,

    Hello aspirant,
    If you don't need a new phone for any official purposes, then don't succumb to his pressure. He is no one to impose it on you to buy a high standard phone when it's not needed. Ignore what he is saying and do what you're comfortable with. If you want to buy a new one for your own satisfaction and happiness, go in for it otherwise be your own dictator.
    If he gets after your life, tell him in a very polite manner that it is not his matter of concern and is your concern, so just be carefree on this front and lead a life thinking about yourself and your family on such issues.
    This is something personal and is entirely your decision. So live with it.

    Good luck

    Hello,

    I am really surprised that your boss thinks that the standard of the company can be maintained if you buy a costlier mobile! This is not only hilarious but also disgusting at the same time.Actually changing his materialistic mind set is essential to upgrade the standard of the company.This is the actual fact.Since you work under him,you wont get a chance to speak up against him.But make it clear to him that at present you are having some financial constraints ,sso it will be a real pressure for you tobuy a new mobile at this point of time.Now ,since he has instructed you to buy a new mobile,take your time and manage to buy it after some months.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Some of the boss is fun of new & standard things where as some don't care for such things.Instead they want an useful item to have to meet the purposes.There are wide varieties of mobile right from the low cost to the high cost.You can get as many facilities as you need according to cost you pay for the said set.

    Since you are having a mobile set with which you are able to meet your purposes,you can assure your boss to purchase a new set when you have sufficient amount of money for the same.or you can say to your boss that you have many other works in more priorities than to purchase a new mobile set,So I am not in a position to purchase it now.Later I would like to have when the time permits me.

    you boss will be convinced & he won't feel otherwise.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hi,

    Please discuss your concern with your boss...You should have raised your voice at that time... why are you not raised your voice when any matter is not agreed by you...

    Raising voice is not crime...sometime it is also correct to raise voice as many decisions are changed due to raising of voice and many times many wrong decisions are taken due to non-raising of voice.....

    Suggession is don't be afraid of saying any thing or discussing any thing with your boss.

    This is really an unusual demand by your boss, also this makes no sense that the type of the mobile will help you in maintaining standards of the company.

    Coming to the point, as he is your boss so you cannot even tell him that this is a stupid thinking.

    So it is better that you ignore such demands by your boss and just nod him if he discuss with you on this topic again.

    Even if he repeatedly insists you to buy an advance phone than you can also tell him the same thing that you had written here that you don't have much money to buy an expensive

    phone and in future when you will have enough money than you will buy the phone. This will help you in changing the topic easily.

    Also this will make your position clear in front of your boss and as this is a genuine and true reason you won't have to face any other such unusual questions by your boss.

    Alternatively it would be much better that in future whenever you go in front of your boss keep your mobile silent and in the pocket so that he doesn't see it and start giving such unusual

    advices to you.

    You don't need to feel bad as you are perfectly right in your thinking in not wasting money on such techniques(even at times you have) that soon will change after an year or so and again

    you will be left with the same problem of having an phone that have old features and is not up to the standards as said by your boss

    This is the actual fact.Since you work under him,you wont get a chance to speak up against him.
    But make it clear to him that at present you are having some financial constraints , so it will be a real pressure for you to buy a new mobile at this point of time.
