Admin Day – Glad that’s OVER!
Now, we can all look forward to the REAL celebration…
ADMIN DAY has to be the most OVERRATED holiday ever! Yesterday, April 23rd, one of the other managers in my office asked, “When was the last time you thanked your secretary?”… FOR WHAT?! Doing her job that I pay her to do? I know that I have thanked her for something…at some point…but I am a busy boss, so…. Then he reminded me that it was administrative professional’s day.
…Administrative Professional’s Day? I thought it was some sort of joke. On my list of priorities, Admin Day ranks right up there with Talk Like a Pirate Day and getting trampled at some store on Black Friday. If I observe this Administrative Assistant’s Day, what’s next? She’ll be wanting Columbus Day off, too?
My coworker mentioned that he forgot Administrative Assistant’s Day last year and he had to hear his secretary complain about it for a month.
How about I just thank my secretary when she does something RIGHT for once?
Let me tell you what admin day should be for… reminding our secretaries of the things they are doing wrong. It should be like a new year’s resolution list for her to improve on to serve me better going into the next year. Or maybe just a short note, to show her that I am thinking of her…
To my secretary on Administrative Assistant’s Day:
Going forward, my coffee should be in my hand,
hot and delicious, when I arrive to the office.
My note will be followed by her gift, which will consist of a day off WITHOUT PAY to attend a career development seminar or training.
Disclaimer: Show your secretary that you appreciate her by acknowledging her hard work on secretary’s day. Bad Boss posts are meant to be humorous and should not to be taken seriously.
