Glorify Your Secretary Today

April 27, 2005

Hey! Today I found out that I am an Administrative Professional! Sweet! And here I thought I was just a glorified secretary! Whew... that's a load off...

"What is the meaning of the observances of National Secretary's Day? Is it a conspiracy dreamt up by the real illuminati: the florist (FTD, to be precise), restaurant (perhaps the National Restaurant Association is the real NRA), candy, and the "surprise" (e.g., the singing moose, magical clown, stripper) service industries? Or is the ritual honestly meant to acknowledge the worthiness and appreciation of the person occupying the role, especially as it is often this person who really keeps the wheels of corporate America turning?"


(Note to self: Review this link - A Sociological Tour Through Cyberspace)

Secretary's Day, now Administrative Professionals for the P.C. minded, was started in 1952 as a way to encourage young women to become secretaries. Today, the day is marked by such exciting fare as pizza and doughnuts (well, at my job anyway) or flowers given to the G.S. of your choice. If you want more information, you could visit Annie's Secretary Day Page which provides historical information, biblical quotes about secretaries (kinda), and, most irritatingly, information on making a good cup of coffee. You might as well skip it, however, and visit this page instead: You Want What? When? which reveals the truth behind Glorified Secretaries (and Waitresses! don't even get me started on that one...)
