In case you didn't know - I am an Administrative Assistant for the Director of Education at a small college here in Iowa.
This is my first administrative position, so last year on Administrative Professionals Day, I:
- Didn't know about it
- Didn't know what to expect
So when my boss forgot - I didn't know. Heck I didn't know until one of the department heads brought me some MK products (love those Satin Fingers!) Needless to say - my boss felt like a tool. He took me to lunch and apologized profusely.
No matter how many times I told him it wasn't a big deal - he never seemed to believe me.
Anyway - Wednesday was AP Day this year.
He didn't forget this year. In fact, he was the only one in the office that remembered (besides the same department head that remembered last year)
So not only did he make sure I got flowers - all the other admins did too!
My boss is a great guy - and he sure did make all of us ladies feel special!
