You know how people say you can judge someone by how they treat children? I think the same holds true for how someone treats a secretary/receptionist/assistant. I’ve had people not take me seriously and treat me like a child before just because I’m a secretary. I don’t like those people. Those people were bastards.
The people I like are the ones who defend me when that happens. When someone asks me what I do for a living and I say “Oh, I’m just a secretary,” if they immediately say something like, “Don’t say just a secretary!” it warms my heart. My boss is always telling people that I keep him out of trouble and I think that’s an overstatement (this job is a breeze most days compared to when I worked at the junior high) but it still really means a lot to me. I really appreciate how good my co-workers are to me and I think they appreciate how good I try to be to them in return. I’ve been offered a couple other job opportunities since taking my current job, both of which I wouldn’t’ve had to interview for and neither of which I took, but each time (any time someone from a different department jokes about “stealing me away” because I’M A BADASS SECRETARY Y’ALL) my bosses get defensive. Like a wolf pack putting themselves between a cub and danger. Even the most reserved and aloof of my bosses speaks up and tells them in no uncertain terms to gtfo — and if it’s getting a rise out of him, you know you’ve touched a nerve, son.
Anyways — smile, be nice to others, be flexible and those traits will take you places in your career. Happy Administrative Professional/Secretary Day! Secretaries are important; hug one today.
Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience - or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.

A rant because this is— as silly as it is — a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Also included: alternate names to use instead.
