We've all been there. You might even be there right now. Do you use your hard-earned university education for such critical tasks as memorising your boss's lunch order or showing them, yet again, how to use the photocopier? Or what about those awesome days when you're instructed to 'send me that thing from a week ago' or 'book me a table at that restaurant that girl said was good', and are then berated when you're not able to figure out immediately what your boss is talking about? TO MY FUTURE ASSISTANT compiles everything that disgruntled (and optimistic) assistants everywhere promise never to do when they're the boss* - from ridiculous requests and backhanded compliments to outright insults. Filled with helpful tips and tricks for Boss Wrangling, these pages are just what the underpaid masses need to survive (and laugh at) the daily injustices of life at the bottom of the career ladder. *But inevitably will.
Welcome to the wickedly funny world of TO MY FUTURE ASSISTANT, where overworked and underappreciated assistants finally get their due.
