This is the last Wednesday in April, which means one thing if nothing else: it is Administrative Professionals Day! (aka Secretaries Day. Or is that Secretaries' Day? atoms?) If you're like CALumbus Bear and yours truly, you forgot. If you're like CALumbus Bear, you
ordered requested asked Ohio Bear some lackey to do you a favor and get something for your secretary on the way to work.
If you have a secretary/administrative assistant, don't forget to acknowledge him/her for all that he/she does for you. Get some type of gift, not only for the sake of gratitude but to also keep him/her in your good graces. Secretaries talk. If you don't get yours a gift and the other secretaries get gifts, you might find your mail in the circular file.
And please -- extra respect today. Unless your secretary looks like, say, Jane Krakowski's character from the old TV series Ally McBeal...
or Maggie Gyllenhall's character from the film "The Secretary"...
it's probably best NOT to call your secretary the "sexytary" today, K? (I'm talkin' to YOU, Scootie!)
And if you ARE an administrative professional: I hope you get a nice gift today. If you don't, tell your boss he/she's an asshole. That will go quite well.
So, if you have an assistant/secretary, what did you do for him/her today? If you're a secretary/administrative assistant, did you get anything good? Do tell.
Edited: Also, in the comments, 49er16 pointed out that I "forgot" about Peggy on Mad Men when pointing out "sexytary" examples. Feel free to post SFW photos in the comments showing YOUR favorites.
