Please allow me a moment to "rant".
So this past Wed was National Administrative Assistant Day. A few weeks ago I told my mother that I was going to throw a hissy fit if someone tried to honor me on this day. At one point my boss and I had to decline an invitation for me to join the A-Team (A for Assistant not Amazing).
I'm no one's Assistant.
I have a title that does not have the word "Executive" "Administrative" or "Assistant" anywhere in it!
I'm tired of people looking at me and asking if someone is available. How the hell am I supposed to know? Ask them yourself.
Well the "day came and went and not a word was mentioned. *Phew*
Well. I was wrong.
I just was given a coupon from our catering lady for a free lunch for all the hard work I do. She said that she wants to acknowledge the people who work with her and play the go between (since the school doesn't do anything special for Admin Asst Day). I smiled and said thank you.
I feel guilty about using it. It's meant for admins. And while I end up (begrudgingly) playing the Admin part often....I'M NOT AN ASSISTANT! *sigh*
