Am I just way too sensitive?
I am an office manager. When I was interviewed for my position, I was asked if I minded making coffee. I said no problem. It turns out that making the coffee also means cleaning up the kitchen. I just washed a sink full of mugs, glasses, and silverware, wiped the counters clean, etc. I've done this every day at work, sometimes twice a day, for the last 2.5 years. Am I being overly sensitive about this? It really pisses me off that it is beneath other people here at work to wash their own dishes, but somehow it shouldn’t be beneath me to wash their stuff for them.
What do you all think? Am I overreacting? Some people say it all pays the same, so why should I care what I’m doing at work as long as I am compensated. It doesn’t bother me to do any number of other tasks for my bosses and co-workers, just this one thing.
Do others of you wash your own coffee cups/water glasses at work? Or do you leave them for the office peon like me?
