Recently I was asked to look for an item of furniture for the office (strictly for staff use, not clients) and was given some general specs such as dimensions, style and minimum requirements. After a bit of research and sorting through undesirable or inappropriate options, I sent a small selection to both of the directors (my bosses).
This went well until they both decided they had different criteria. The two bosses kept disagreeing on which options satisfy the specs and one of them decided to look at others. After an hour the director came back and said to go with the first option I had presented in my selection as it satisfied the specs best and was a compromise between the two bosses' opinions.
I was a little annoyed with my boss for asking me to do the task, disagreeing with my results, and then doing it again. I expressed my frustration and pointed out that I had in fact done the job properly the first time around. My boss was in a good mood and we laughed about the time we'd wasted, but afterwards I felt that maybe I shouldn't have made an issue of it.
Did I do the wrong thing?
