  1. I’m glad I don’t have to do timecards. In addition to “secretarial duties” I would have to list such productive things as “babysitting” and “being my brother’s keeper”.
    We don’t have “secretaries”. Haven’t for a long while. We have “office professionals”. I have no idea what they do to fill their days.


  2. I agree with B. You are in so much trouble. Even though our Administrative Assistants don’t get along, they will band together if one is attacked by a non-AA.

    I wouldn’t count on your next travel lodging being too desirable. You’ll be lucky if you don’t get scabies just pulling into the parking garage.


  3. dolce: Just about everybody in my section. Of course, they have different task descriptors for it, but a rose by any other name and all that.
    b: You’re quite right, but I wouldn’t, even if I was me – and I am.
    daisy: It’s quite a large mug, but you give me too much credit. Freeze-dried turd in her instant coffee jar gets the job done just as effectively.
    andrew: If it doesn’t kill you, it’ll make you stronger.
    nursemyra: I wonder if the Gimcrack was the source of the offending additive?
    unbearable banishement: Somehow I doubt she’d be any more cooperative with an important sounding title.
    rob: We’re not really big on titles in my office, although there are distinct battle lines drawn between admin and technical staff. Neither faction has a clear idea what the other one does.
    uncle keith: Based on my last trip, I think that ship has already sailed. I can only go up from here.
    robin: Even if she didn’t, I certainly enjoyed myself.
    gnukid: The last time was a false alarm. The office coffee isn’t exactly top quality (which is why most people bring in their own)
