I have the issue that my boss wants me to do some regular stuff for the workshop. I am an engineer.
We have a technician that is supposed to take care of these matters as they don't require engineering skills but he will be busy next two days in a different place.
I don't mind shopping these items to not delay the project but I don't know when is the specific point that I should object to requests that are not mine to fulfill and not my job to do.
Especially that he made it as an order not a request.
Kindly offer me some details on whether this is normal or not and when to object if any objection is required.
Its a AI startup that recently decided to dive in the robotics area, only 4 people in the department of robotics a manager two engineers and the technician.
