1. I am an administrative assistant. We have a list-serve for all the admins in the company. On Friday I got an email that said, "Hello ladies, this is just a reminder to sign up for the advanced PowerPoint class." Ahem.
2. On Thursday a consultant from one of the powerhouse accounting firms was in for a meeting. A real networking type. He stopped by my desk and said, "Hi there, I'm ________ with _________, I don't think I've met you before, are you new?" "Oh, I've been here about six months." "Oh, okay, awesome. Nice to meet you. So, what's your specialty...are you the new international guy?" "Umm. No, I'm the department admin." [pause] "Oh. Okay, well, right, great to meet you."
