Dear Prudence,
I work for a small nonprofit. Our office doesn’t have a kitchen, so we have an informal series of coffee runs throughout the day. Anyone stepping out will often ask around if anybody else would like a coffee. My boss often says yes but never offers to give money for his cup of coffee. Over time, those few bucks here and there add up. How can I ask for him to pony up for his next cup? Is an offer to pick up a coffee also an offer to pay for it? Or should I just stop offering to pick up a coffee for everyone altogether and risk looking selfish?

“If anyone wants coffee, I’m happy to pick it up while I’m out. Just give me your order and a few bucks.” If your boss has simply been absent-minded until now, he’ll open his wallet. If he’s been intentionally squeezing his employees for free coffee, he’ll make excuses about not having cash on him at the moment, coupled with a vague promise to pay you back in the future (he will not pay you back). If it’s the former, your problem is solved. If it’s the latter, you can stop offering to pick up coffee for the rest of the office with a clear conscience.

squeezing his employees for free coffeeはどのような意味でしょうか?あと、pick up a coffeeとpick up coffee、2つありますが、違いはあるでしょうか?よろしくお願いします
