The A/C needed a new part

All repair requests for the condo building have to go through the boss. This is a rule that has been the same for the past 2 years. I have been working for the condo building complex that long. When there is a repair that requires parts, I have to make a request. When a repair requires a part from an outside provider, I have to send a request for that as well. Over the weekend, there was a problem with one of our tenants and I needed to update some parts for the a/c. The parts for the a/c were only $17 and I paid for them out of my own pocket. I really did not think it was going to be a big deal and I knew that the parts were going to maintain the problem with the clients a/c. I submitted the bill so I could get paid and I got a call 5 minutes later from my boss. She wanted to see me inside her office. When I sat down, I really thought she was going to write me a check or give me cash out of the drawer. I really did not expect her to yell at me for not following the rules. I told my boss that the $17 parts were no big deal and I did not mind paying for them, but she told me that I wasn’t following directions and it wasn’t about the amount of money that I paid for the parts. I do not think I’m going to work here much longer with stupid rules like that.
