Vent of the day on administrative assistants!
Lets talk about administrative assistants again for one second. A caller to the Bert Show this morning called in to say she was pissed that her boss had ONLY given her flowers and a gift card for a $1,000.00!!! Are administrative assistants the new waiter and waitress and they have just lost their FUCKING MINDS and think they are worth way more than they are? Look don't be mistaken that because you might pay some bills, type some stuff and schedule your bosses day that you are somehow invaluable. Yes, its a pain in the ass to train someone new and get them up to speed but that's all. It's a hell of a lot harder to find an affective manager or sales rep. Waiters and waitresses bitching about 20% tips for carrying food over and filling the fucking water, administrative assistants bitching about not getting something for the made up administrative assistants day, what the fuck is going on? I'm almost to the point where I'm going back to tipping 10% which not so long ago was a great tip. And yeah, I've heard it all, that you have to pay the bus boy and matride out of that and blah blah blah. The sense of entitlement in the United States is out of control.
