A Happy Administrative Professional's Day to You

It's a holiday that ought to be more encompassing this year.

By SHARE

Today is Administrative Professional's Day in the U.S. It's traditionally been a day for managers to make a point of showing their appreciation. This year, however, even the bosses are probably aching for a little appreciation, and I was thinking that the holiday might be a little less relevant. That is, until I read this list of terrible requests bosses have made to their administrative assistants.

Some choice excerpts from Business Management Daily:

* Inspect the boss’s sandwich every day to make sure it contained no tomatoes.

* Call around for a used toilet to replace one that had broken in the boss’s rental house. “Uh, do you guys have any used toilets?”

* Send fake rejection letters from universities to the boss’s daughter as a joke.

* Take a Johnny Mathis album cover to the tailor to find material that matched Johnny’s jacket.
