Administrative Professionals Day

Back in the day they would have called it Secretaries Day, but that is now politically incorrect. I'm sure somewhere out there it is politically incorrect to address us as "dear, sweetie, honey", but it happens on the regular. I am not overly caught up in all the correctness. Hell, I wouldn't have such good rapport with my customers if I was that stiff at my office. Of course, I deal with contractors all day. Nuf said about that.

The general manager took me to lunch today. I had a wonderful seafood chowder to start and this incredible chicken dish with a brae (did I spell that right? the cheese I mean) and strawberry sauce served with spinach salad. Yummy. My belly is still full. I even enjoyed a couple of beer with my meal. It was all I could do to stay awake for the rest of the day! All I really wanted after lunch was to have a nap. Alas, it was very busy so no rest for the wicked. Happy Administrative Professionals Day to all of you admin workers out there. Hope you got some flowers, lunch or some other form of recognition for all of your hard work. Without us, the offices wouldn't tick. I am clapping and cheering for you now...hope it makes you feel special. :)

Hmm.... I got a donut, a one bite brownie, a $15 gift card to Starbucks and a nice card.

Eh... it's just nice to be recognized. ;)

Oh... and I got to lecture Ranger on the major faux-pas of saying that I was "just like a secretary so what's the big deal"... oooo...that didn't go well for him. ha..ha.ha...

yay for your boss for recognizing you on the awesome holiday!!! In all my years of being a secretary, I think my bosses remembered twice.
