    Yippee! I saw that Rachel was getting a lot of gifts & it reminded me today is Admin Professionals day, formerly known as Secretary's Day I believe. I always found it a bit offensive for some reason...but in my last job our owners treated as a day to do something special for all of the women in the office. They would take us out to a really great lunch & give us awesome gifts like gift certificates to a spa. Gone are those days for me

    So, what is your employer doing for you today?

          At lunch he'd get like 2-3 bottles of wine and we'd all down them lol I remember last time, on the way back to work from the lunch, me and 2 other girls stopped at a bar and took shots lol No one knew 'cept us. I just crept back into my office like nothing was going on lol

            LOL- I must have seriously cursed myself. I just got a flower bouquet with tiny bottles of lotion and body spray in it. I kid you not. I'm off to the bathroom- I need to check my armpits.

              Haha!! Yes, you definitely stink Rachel. I think this is one of those days that freaks bosses out...it's like a no win situation...you do something for the ladies in the office & they get pissed thinking you are calling them secretaries...you don't do anything & then you are insensitive. Lotion is pretty safe I guess. Although, I would much prefer a boozy lunch!

                  That is fricking awesome! And a pretty clear indicator that you guys were already trashed...right? That 3 people could decide it's a good idea to stop & have shots on the way back to work? Definitely trashed.
