Claiming a Task Is Impossible

It's important to let your boss know if your workload or a project is seeming unmanageable, but approach it carefully. In one office where I worked, the administrative assistant told our boss that her job was impossible and unreasonable. The problem was, several other people had already held that exact position and had performed it with no problem. So instead of getting support and a lightened workload, the assistant got replaced with someone who could get the job done.
