If the situation arises I would simply tell them that you are still unfamiliar with how the employee discount works and that at this time you feel uncomfortable inquiring until you’ve spent more time working at the company.

Snapping at someone for asking a question is a severe overreaction, especially when it’s taking out your frustration on someone else. If he asks, just tell him that you’d feel more comfortable discussing it in private/later/not at all. Or hell, just tell him what it is (if you think it’s because he’s asking for your SO), and then tell him that you don’t feel comfortable allowing others to use your discount.

Just tell them you think you can only use the discount with relatives, you’d have to check with your manager, and you need the time to do that.


Honestly, “my boyfriend’s brother” doesn’t apply in most cases anyway… My brother-in-law, on the other hand…
