Administrative Professionals Day


In honor of Administrative Professionals Day I will share with you some of my exciting job history. I used to be a secretary/administrative assistant at a big, international PR firm. I liked it well enough, but I was nearing 27 and mostly just wanted to get married and pop out several babies. So my focus was on my future for sure.

Plus I didn't handle grown adults acting like big old babies too well. Meaning, women in their 60s throwing hissy fits over the fact that their tuna sandwich had onions in it. To my children I would simply say, "Pick them out." For my boss, I had to haul my butt back to the restaurant and get a new one made. And don't even get me started on my MALE bosses. Talk about primadonnas!

Yes, folks, I am much better at working as a homeschooling mom and freelance writer/waitress/cook/housekeeper.

Anarchy rocks and is a good job if you can get it.

  1. I know what you mean! That happened for me a lot sooner though. I was 20 and ready to start. I hated working in an office and there was so much drama. Plus, I was always getting spied on by the older ladies in the company who had nothing better to do. Ugh.
