    ~서 can be used with a "sequence"

    돌려서 빼 Turn and (then) pull.
    나가서 사드세요. Please go out and then buy something to eat. ('사먹다' is to eat out, as opposed to eat at home).

    ~서 can be also used with "cause and effect"

    나는 피곤해서 지금 잘래. I'm tired, so I'll sleep now.

    "서" in that case means action order, something like "then".
