Administrative Professional Humor + $10 Off

Administrative Professional’s Day, also known as Secretaries Day, is coming up.  This year, it’s on April 25th, the last Wednesday of the month.  There are many different ways of celebrating this day.  The International Association of Administrative Professionals, which actually holds the registered trademark for Administrative Professionals Day, suggests employers offer continuing education courses and seminars, but where’s the fun in that?  Most employers give their administrative professionals gifts like flowers and candy, take them out to lunch, or even give them the day off.

Administrative Professionals aren’t above joking around.  They are full of humor, and it’s often their humor that keeps the office stress-free and fun.  Whenever you’re having a down day, it’s your assistant or office manager who steps in and keeps everything running smoothly.  They don’t necessarily even have to make a joke or do anything humorous—instead, they simply make sure to keep as much from you as possible so you can ride out your bad day with as little stress as possible.

Sadly, not everyone appreciates their administrative professionals.  Here are five of the worse quotes made by bosses over the years. 

"Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work." - John G. Pollard

"Happy is the man with a wife to tell him what to do and a secretary to do it." - Lord Mancroft

"I think any man in business would be foolish to fool around with his secretary. If it's somebody else's secretary, fine." - Barry Goldwater

"Millionaires are marrying their secretaries because they are so busy making money they haven’t time to see other girls." - Doris Lilly

"When things haven’t gone well for you, call in a secretary or a staff man and chew him out. You will sleep better and they will appreciate the attention." - Lyndon B. Johnson

Obviously, you don’t want to say anything like that to your administrative professional this year!  Instead, give them flowers!  We’ll even help.  Take $10 off if you order flowers for your administrative professional between now and April 20.  Just use code BL2 at check-out.
